Regency Romance: The Second Sister (Historical Billionaire Military Romance) (19th Century Victorian Romance)

by Sarah Thorn

What happens when the second sister falls in love with her elder sister’s betrothed?

Ellen is a piano player, an undiscovered genius. She will never be found gracing the drawing rooms with her witty conversation. Rather she is always sat behind the piano, where she is safe in her solitude.

One day, a Duke comes to the family home and Ellen, from behind her piano, finds him most interesting; with his impolite demeanor and the scar across his face that her sisters find grotesque.

But it is not Ellen the Duke comes to see. Anxious to father an heir to his fortune, he is interested in Ellen’s beautiful elder sister, Jane. But Jane loves another.

Can Ellen, in her sister’s stead, marry the Duke?

A young widow. A dashing rake. And an indecent proposal.

Lady Adele Vaughan is a young widow. As her new status permits, she may now finally enjoy the freedom she has longed for her whole life and she vows never to marry again.

Nicholas Geraghty is the son of an Earl. A philanderer, his only use for women, is to enjoy them in his bed. If he must marry, then it will only be when it is time to produce an heir. But now, he is under pressure to take a bride, or he stands to be disinherited.

Adele meets Nicolas one evening at a ball. She finds him frightfully handsome, but his manners and treatment of women are despicable. He offers her a business proposal, and at first, she does not suspect that his motives are less than chivalrous. But once his hand is revealed, she takes full advantage of him in return. Now her most pressing challenge is not to fall in loveâ?¦
