This begins ‘The Brides of Fortune’ trilogy, a sexy Regency romance laced with murder and dominated by an extraordinary new local tax law in Yorkshire – one that requires all unmarried women to forfeit half their wealth. Naturally a lot of young men hurry to Yorkshire seeking wealthy, desperate brides. Our heroine, recently widowed Laura, has no intention of marrying again …
All's fair in love and matrimony in book one of Nicola Cornick's Regency The Brides of Fortune Trilogy . When an ancient tax law is invoked requiring all unmarried ladies to either wed or surrender half their wealth, the quiet village of Fortune's Folly is overrun by a swarm of fortune-hunting bachelors. Marry again? Never! Not after what Laura, the dowager duchess, was forced to endure the first time. Even if her onetime paramour, Dexter Anstruther, is oh-so-tempting, she knows her secrets would destroy any chance at a future together. Young, handsome and scandalously tempting, Dexter suspects Laura has a hidden motive for resisting his charms...and he intends to discover it, by any means necessary.
