Have you ever entered a room and felt like everyone was staring at you? You gaze down at your clothes to ensure you haven’t forgotten your top or have toilet paper stuck on your shoe. Or are you more likely to trip over your own feet just when you want to make an impression? Well, my latest heroine, Miss Suzanna March, suffers from such a disability – she is a klutz. During her debut season into London she had spilt wine on her gown, fallen over in a ballroom filled with members of the ton and befriended a Viscount who gave her the cut direct in front of the society she was struggling so hard to impress. So what does any self respecting girl do? She flees to Paris.
Where of course, Suzanna learns to be a lady of the first water. One who is determined to re-enter London society and prove to everyone she’s no longer the freckled redhead who had provided them with such amusement. And perhaps while she’s there a little pay back toward the Viscount, who she’d once secretly admired, wouldn’t hurt either.
A Marriage Made in Mayfair, is a tale of two people from different levels of society; their struggles with image, both cosmetic and financial, that dictates their life within the strictures of the ton. It is a tale of how wrongs can be made right through honour and truth.
Miss Suzanna March wished for one thing, the elusive, rakish charmer, Lord Danning. But after a frightful first season sees her flee to Paris, such dreams seem impossible. That is until she returns to London, a new woman, and one who will not let the ton’s dislike of her stand in her way of gaining what she wants. Revenge on the Lord who gave her the cut direct and perhaps a little flirtation to show the mighty Viscount what he’ll never have.
Lord Danning unbeknown to his peers is in financial strife and desperate to marry an heiress. Such luck would have it Miss Suzanna March fits all his credentials and seduction is his plan of action. Yes, the woman who returned from Paris is stronger, defiant, and a little argumentative, but it does not stop Lord Danning finding himself in awe and protective of her.
But will Suzanna fall for such pretty words from a charmer only after one thing. Or will Lord Danning prove to Suzanna and himself that she is more than his ticket out of debtor’s prison…
