Roxton Family Saga Book 4: Mary and Christopher’s Happily Ever After
1770s Gloustershire and Hampshire.
Widowed and destitute, Lady Mary Cavendish is left with only her pride. Daughter of an earl and great-granddaughter to a Stuart King, expectations demand she remarry. But not just any man will do; her husband must rank among the nobility. As always, Mary will do her duty and ignore her heart.
Country squire Christopher Bryce has secretly loved his neighbor Mary for many years. Yet, he is resigned to the cruel reality they are not social equals and thus can never share a future together. Never mind that his scandalous past and a heartbreaking secret make him thoroughly unworthy of such a proud beauty.
But with the help of a family ghost, and the never ordinary members of the Roxton family, Mary and Christopher realize that a happily ever after might just be possible.
Fans of the series will delight in being reacquainted with the fascinating, always surprising, and never ordinary members of the Roxton family.

“Once again, I was totally captivated. Another superb book to add to an equally superb series. If you have not yet read this series, then you have many hours of wonderful storytelling to look forward to…” —Carol Cork Rakes And Rascals HIGHLY RECOMMENDED STELLAR 5 STARS
“While PROUD MARY can be read as a standalone, there is much more pleasure to be had by reading the series in order and learning to know and love this family as much as I and many other readers have. Each book has been a joy to read, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.” —Lady Wesley Romantic Historical Reviews, Rated 5 STARS
“I never pass up anything written by Lucinda Brant and having loved each and every previous book in the Roxton Family Saga it was inevitable that PROUD MARY wind up on my must read list. PROUD MARY is a love story of unrequited and unacceptable love and passion. But if we’ve learned anything in the previous Roxton Family tales love has a way of conquering all stereotypes and norms. And so PROUD MARY, a true Georgian historical romance, carries on a proud tradition of endearing and engaging works of art by Lucinda Brant.”—SWurman, Night Owl Reviews 5 STARS TOP PICK
