An Eccentric Engagement
Classic Regency Romances Book #18
Sorrow Marchand has patiently endured the
taunts of London society for her bold speech and curious ways, yet it was those
very qualities of the sparkling young beauty that caught the eye of the
Honorable Bertram Carlyle and ultimately elicited an offer of marriage from him.
But the usually candid Sorrow has kept her ludicrously madcap family a
well-hidden secret from her betrothed—and now he is coming to visit!
Bertram was an exceedingly suitable suitor, but for all his many fine traits he
had been harshly schooled under the oppressive thumb of his father and had
meekly embraced many of the man’s conventional attitudes. Upon meeting Sorrow’s
family and becoming swept up in the endless swirl of silly chaos, he senses a
conflict of epic proportions on the horizon—both within himself and with his
As Sorrow grows more concerned that her outrageous relatives will damn her only
chance at happiness with a man she truly loves, Bertram must find the courage
to defy his very traditional father and become part of a family that’s anything
but—and become the man Sorrow always knew he could be.
This novella was originally published as “Sorrow’s Wedding” in the anthology
