By the Break of Dawn
by B. J. Betts
Since Isabella was a young child in Italy, her grandmother, Countess Rossi, has told her of the old wives' tale that a maiden must look out her window on Valentine’s Day morning, just before sunrise. The man she sees is the man she will marry within the year. Isabella Rossi is torn between the man she loves or doing what she must to save her family from disgrace.
