Miss Addie Mallory is finished with the husband hunt. After six London Seasons as a wallflower, she convinces her parents that she should be allowed to use her dowry to buy a bookstore in Bath where she can live her life the way she wants.

Lord Grayson, Earl of Berkshire, has never gotten over his deceased wife’s betrayal with his own brother. He plans to make his life all about his son, Michael, who is deaf. When Grayson’s sister-in-law serves him with court papers declaring Michael incompetent with the intention of having her own son named as Grayson’s rightful heir, he turns to Addie, a dyslexic bookstore owner, for help.

Addie takes a personal interest in helping the boy. However, as time passes, Grayson and Addie’s joint venture to keep Michael from being declared incompetent leads to feelings and desires neither one of them expected.

The Merry Misfits of Bath is a brand-new Regency romance series from USA Today bestselling author Callie Hutton. Each standalone story features a heroine who doesn't quite fit in but who finally finds her happy ever after with a hero who sees her through the eyes of love.

Three women turn their backs on London and the husband hunt and take up residency in the
lovely town of Bath.

Miss Adeline Mallory, who has suffered from dyslexia her whole life, convinces her parents that
marriage is simply not in her future and to release her dowry to her so she can open a bookstore.

Miss Charlotte Danvers escapes the reputation her mother built as the most expensive courtesan
in London and supports herself by teaching young ladies all the finer points of the ton who will
never accept her as one of their own.

Lady Pamela Manning cannot get through an entire sentence without stuttering. But she sings
like an angel. She’s happy with her new life as a music teacher, even if most of her students have
no ear for music.

They come together as friends and title themselves The Merry Misfits of Bath. But the
question lingers: How long will they remain misfits?
