In 1822 London


I am London, in the year 1822. I am 28 years old, looking for a prospective groom. I know I am too old to marry but I have to as my father has passed away suddenly and I need someone to look after my estates. While I am meeting eligible bachelors, I see the very recluse, brooding Rex de Warren. I have known him for long. I was once engaged to his brother.

Maybe I ought to consider him instead of looking for older bridegrooms. He is only two years older than me and shunned marriage like me. He needs to marry to have a family and I need to marry to look after my estates. Maybe we would make a good match...

So glad that I don't live in a time that would force me to marry.

This sounds like it has the makings for a pretty good regency romance. It's been too long since I've read one. And this one sounds pretty good! Onto the TBR list you go!

This sounds like a good plot for a great romance novel. I've read some other books by Brenda Joyce so I'll bet this is a good one.

I agree, I'll bet its a good romance novel. I had a neigbor once that had come here from Mexico. She had an arranged marriage. Her husband was 50 years older than her. I am here
