Book description
England, 1816.

Andrina's two lovely sisters -- orphaned, penniless, buried in the country -- would never find suitable husbands unless they went to London, and to introduce them to society. Her sisters' beauty would accomplish the rest.

Andrina imposed on her godfather, the Duke of Broxbourne, a distant relative, to obtained his help. The Duke decides to help after realizing that Andrina is the beautiful girl that he stole a kiss from the evening before!

Thank his help, Andrina has an only snag: she had been so busy arranging her sisters' futures, she failed to notice she was madly in love.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

After the death of her parents, young Andrina Maldon has selflessly borne the responsibility not only for the running a household impoverished by her father's profligacy but also for the future happiness of her two sisters. Strikingly beautiful as they are, there is no hope of their finding a suitable suitor without someone to introduce them to the Social world. So she travels unchaperoned to London to seek the assistance of the Duke of Broxbourne, her father's friend and the Godfather she has never met. On the stagecoach journey, Andrina has a frightening encounter with a gentleman at a Posting inn, and on arrival at Broxbourne House she is appalled to find that this man is none other than the Duke of Broxbourne himself. At first unwilling to help her, the Duke grudgingly agrees to her requests and although grateful, Andrina despises this arrogant and insensitive man, until, little by little, his true nature is revealed and a very different emotion begins to stir in her heart.… (more)
