Promises & Perceptions: A Regency Romance Short Story
by Rachel Elizabeth Cole
For Isabella Dearborne it's the first ball of the season and she is eager to dance with handsome Mr. Harrison--if only he'll ask her. But when her elder sister, Amelia, rudely spurns her suitor, Mr. Croswell, Isabella dutifully steps in and takes her place. Soon, Isabella begins to see that neither gentleman is quite what she imagined at the beginning of the evening.
