The Blue Jay and the Sparrow (Romance on the Continent)
by Paula Freda
Mark can do no less than to honor his friend's final request that he take on the responsibility of the orphaned daughter, Cybelle. Nine years later, a grown-up Cybelle, declares her love. Though he dares not admit it, even to himself, it is mutual, for the fiesty, impish brunette is everything buoyant Mark isn't. A gentleman to the core, Mark resists, but Cybelle is determined to win his heart.
