Two related novellas from the Half Moon House series, now available together for the first time!
An Unexpected Encounter
(originally published September 2013 and November 2016 in paperback and November 2013 in eBook.
Tall, practical girls might not be worth much in a man’s world, but Miss Lisbeth Moreton knows she’s worth more than the squire’s prized heifer.
To change her fate, she’s run off to a date with destiny at the British Museum. Her would-be swain never shows, but an unexpected encounter with Lord Cotwell and his lonely ward might lead to altogether new prospects . . . and perhaps to love.
A Waltz in the Park
(originally published February 2015 in eBook and March 2015 in paperback.
James Vickers once believed honor and family duty to be his life’s work. Now he knows better—and he’s appointed himself as silent witness to his father’s sins. His greatest goal is to act as the continuously pricking thorn in his lordship’s side—and scandal is his greatest weapon.
Propriety is Miss Adelaide’s Stockton’s most important asset. She must be all that is prim and proper if she’s to live down her parents’ misdeeds and have any hope of catching a husband. She must avoid scoundrels like Vickers at all costs.
Yet fate has thrown them together—and given each the key to the other’s ambition. A bargain is struck . . . but together they find that gaining what one desires most is far more difficult than a waltz in the park.
Deb Marlowe loves History, England and Men in Boots. Clearly she was meant to write Regency Historical Romance! Deb grew up in Pennsylvania with her nose in a book. Luckily, she'd read enough romances to recognize the true modern hero she met at a college Halloween party---even though he wore a tuxedo t-shirt instead of breeches and tall boots. They married, settled in North Carolina and produced two handsome, intelligent and genuinely amusing boys. Though she spends much of her time with her nose in her laptop, for the sake of her family she does occasionally abandon her inner world for the domestic adventure of laundry, dinner and carpool. Despite her sacrifice, not one of the men in her family is yet willing to don breeches or tall boots. She's working on it. Deb loves to hear from readers!
