A cute read by a very promising author.
AN IMPROPER INTRODUCTION...AN UNEXPECTED ATTRACTION
Miss Clara Edward's fine watercolor painting may be the pride of her parish, but her insistence on placing the pursuit of art over the pursuit of a husband has her family most perturbed. Everything changes, however, after Clara's buggy collides with that of a strikingly handsome, infuriatingly rude, and undeniably drunk stranger who mistakes her for a mere country hoyden - and whom she again encounters at dinner that evening! The "gentleman" offers an apology, but Clara isn't finished with him yet. No, she'll teach this cad a lesson - even if she must brave a London Season to do so...
Lord Jeremy Carruthers hasn't been the same since his last awkward meeting with the beautiful but unforgiving Clara Edwards. With her straightforward manner and simple country attire, she is nothing like the glittering Society misses who chase him from party to party. Jeremy finds himself increasingly preoccupied...until he hears about a lovely new lady traversing the ton - one to whom he needs no introduction. Given the chance to wipe the slate clean with Clara, he'll prove to her that first impressions can be deceiving when it comes to lasting love.
