Synopsis

Miss Eleanor Southeran was reliably informed that independence of mind was not a desirable quality in a young lady. But, convinced that she could not love any of the fashionable fribbles of the Ton, Eleanor had so far evaded matrimony.

Meeting Mr. Jonas Guthrie, a forthright, coolly cynical gentleman, was a refreshing change--until the scandal that surrounded his name was revealed. Believing herself deceived about his character, Eleanor intended never to see him again. But Jonas had other plans for her....

 

About Sylvia Andrew

See more books from this Author
Until Sylvia retired, she didn't have much time for writing, though she did attempt a modern "woman in danger" novel, which she worked on desultorily for about 20 years, then abandoned. Teaching full-time as vice principal of a large comprehensive sixth form college, while also running a house and a family, didn't really give her much time for writing. When she took it up again she found the heroine a complete wimp and the hero a pompous bore. On the whole it seemed better to leave them to their fate.She never attempted to have anything published before she sent in her first historical romance to Mills & Boon, in the days when the series was called "Masquerade." She was somewhat flabbergasted — though absolutely delighted — when it was accepted. Perdita first appeared in 1991 and she now has seven "sisters," with a new brother and sister due to appear as part of the Steepwood Scandal series. In spite of this, Sylvia is still surprised at the idea of herself as a writer.Sylvia and her husband, Simon, are retired and visit their small house in Normany whenever they can. They still talk in Caen of Sylvia's piercing shriek of delight when she first discovered one of her romances on sale in the "Continent" supermarket there.
