The Blackmailed Beauty
by Ilene Withers
Unwanted attention from the local viscount in an empty churchyard turns into an assault. Claire Stuart escapes with her virtue intact only to be blackmailed by his sister, Lady Regina, who witnessed the attack. Claire now faces ruin if she does not meet the terms of the blackmail – convince the Earl of Roydon to marry her, even though a long-standing arrangement has matched him with Lady Regina.
