“Might I present Isabella, Countess of Hamersby?”
This Regency romance takes place almost entirely in London.
By the standards of the beau monde, Bella is “older,” and scandalous simply because she has traveled the world with her now-elderly husband, both merchant and diplomat. She has always been shy, but is no longer timid, and wants nothing more than to retire to the country and live the rest of her life without fanfare. While she is in some ways worldly (“I am a dab hand with a foil and a short knife, though I pray you not make it known.”), she is also quiet, modest, and devoted to her husband.
Returning to London from her extensive travels, she is pursued as a wealthy “almost-widow,” which places her in the marriage mart against her will–and her better judgment. Added to that, the new king, George IV, singles her out as a friend and erstwhile adviser, ensuring social attention she would prefer to avoid. Once targeted by the ton, she finds herself in the sights of not one, but two dukes with dastardly ulterior motives, both of whom excite her in different ways.
