Shortlisted for the Love Story of the Year in the 2011 Pure Passion Awards

Secrets and subterfuge abound in Regency Newmarket...Caroline Fortune asks for little more than to train horses and continue her stealthy progress towards independence. To this end she projects a cheerfully argumentative persona in the hope that the potential suitors dredged up by her mother will all leave her alone. Lord Alexander Rothwell is certainly happy to do so. He is in Newmarket purely to fulfil an obligation. Irritable because he believes he is investigating a mare's nest, he is determined to disprove rumours of crooked racecourse dealings as soon as possible. Then he can return to his political career in London. So, when Caroline finds Alexander left for dead outside her brother's racing stables, they are both considerably disconcerted.

Synopsis

Fortunate Wager by Jan Jones

About the Author

Jan Jones

Jan Jones fell in love with Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer and the 1800s aged about twelve, but it wasn’t until a lot later that she wondered if perhaps she couldn’t write a Regency novel herself. Moving to Newmarket on the Suffolk/Cambridge border (very big in Regency sporting circles) crystallised the idea, and Fair Deception was born. In a previous existence, Jan was a software engineer and then (after the advent of children) a pre-school playgroup leader. She still takes an active part in village life, but writing novels and women’s magazine stories now takes up most of her time. Jan is on the committee of the Romantic Novelist’s Association and has picked the good jobs to do: coordinating the parties and organising the annual conference. Her romantic comedy Stage by Stage won the RNA New Writers Award in 2005.
