A novel by

A traditional Regency romance, drawing room rather than bedroom. Rosamund Winterton is ready to settle down. At two and twenty, she determines to bring a previous suitor to the point. When he proposes and she accepts, her future seems assured. But the death of her betrothed just days before the wedding leaves Rosamund desperate for a replacement, and his younger brother seems ideal. There's just one problem - Rosamund can't stand him.Robin Dalton just wants to carve out a place for himself in London society, and marrying a provincial chit like Rosamund doesn't come into it. Still, she's very pretty and there's a good dowry, so perhaps it won't be so bad. But marriage is surprisingly difficult, and however did he come to fall in love? But their fragile chance of happiness hangs by a thread; the constables are suspicious about his older brother's death, and Robin is the obvious suspect. How can he possibly prove his innocence?A prequel to the 5-book Sisters of Woodside Mysteries series, each a complete story with a HEA, but read all of them to find out all the family secrets!
