Classic Regency Romances
Haven Trilogy Book #1
Dresden has no patience for the merciless gossip of the ton or the handy
hypocrisy of the nobility, and now that her mother has arranged for her to
marry the supposedly cruel Viscount Haven, she fears for her future happiness.
In an effort to appease her mother and also put an end to her matchmaking, Jane
agrees to meet the man, but in a fit of panic runs from the engagement and
takes refuge in a country cottage, disguised as a maid. There she meets a kind
and comforting local farmer who shares her taste for simplicity and quickly
captures her heart.
Lord Haven had long ago resigned himself to the unpleasant duties of his title
and accepted the hard truth that taking a wife and producing an heir was among
them— though he shudders at the prospect of spending his life with the charmless
woman his mother has arranged for him to wed. Wishing to delay their formal
meeting until the last possible moment, he shrugs off his stifling attire and
escapes to his favorite sanctuary, a simple cottage on his grand estate. There
he meets a caring and captivating maid who steals his heart, and in the guise
of a common farmer he proceeds to court her, fearing all the while that his
ruse will be discovered.
As the two struggle with the implications of their deceit and the shattering
knowledge that revealing their true identities will doom their blossoming bond,
each is forced to choose between duty and heartfelt desire, never suspecting
that their fated match holds the key to a true and lasting love.
is a fully revised edition of a book originally titled A Country Courtship.

The national bestselling author of 'Shadow of a Spout' invites readers back to the Finger Lakes town of Gracious Grove for more tea and murder...
Mid-October in the charming Finger Lakes town of Gracious Grove
means it's time for the annual Fall Fling Townwide Tea Party. The
highlight of the festivities is a roaming tea-tasting, which includes a
stop at Auntie Rose's Victorian Tea House.
Sophie Taylor would like to share her enjoyment of the event
with her sort-of-boyfriend, English teacher Jason Murphy, but Jason's
dean has accused him of falsifying grades to help an athlete at the
local college. Steamed and stressed, Jason shows up the night of the
party with bags under his eyes.
But the dean shows up under Sophie's Japanese Maple later that
night, murdered, and now Jason is suspected of far worse than fudging
grade reports. It's up to Sophie, her Nana, and their friends, the
Silver Spouts, to pore over the clues to find out who really decided to
teach the dean a lesson.
