and the Scholar. . .
Brides of Bath (Regency-set historicals) are back!
Certain the "smart" Steffington twin can help
her recover her late husband's nearly priceless stolen Chaucer
manuscript, Catherine Bexley tearfully persuades the scholar to
assist her. A deal is struck. She's particularly pleased this Doctor
of Letters is not interested in seducing her because she's finished
with men (owing to her late husband's multitude of unfortunate
alliances with. . .doxies). Regaining the manuscript and its
subsequent sale will give her independence to ensure she never has
to marry again,
Once he learns the poor, delicate widow is in
danger of losing her heavily mortgaged home if they cannot find the
valuable hologram, Dr. Melvin Steffington vows to do everything in
his power to restore the rare Canterbury Tales to her. It's
obvious the pretty little thing needs a man to help her. Not
normally the twin to take note of pretty little things,
Melvin can't help but to observe that Mrs. Bexley's physical
appearance is much like the beauties so admired by his twin brother.
He hadnít counted on the fact he would have to
pose as her husband as they race against the banker's ticking clock.
He hadnít counted on the mysterious thief attempting to kill him.
Most of all, he hadn't counted on how close he would become to the
lovely widow or how the kissing of said widow would become the most
pleasant experience in his entire seven and twenty years. . .
