Will the third time be the charm? In 1802 London, Emma Fitzsimmons is determined to fend for herself in life as well as love. Her banker has other plans for her future, though—marriage—as does her best friend. Given the options, should Emma consider the tall broker? Or the rake who isn't what he seems? What of her employer? Six can become three in this sensual tale of mismatchmaking at its finest.
First comes matchmaking. Then comes marriage. Then comes a baby carriage ... well, usually. Life in 1802 London throbs with great expectations and unlimited potential for four couples. Can best friends and family remain so when life doesn’t quite get it right? Are romance and marriage compatible, reconcilable? Perhaps, but only if they can overcome “The Pride of a Gentleman.”
