Due to her father’s investment acumen, Lucy Swinton finds herself a guest at a duke’s country house party. Still, she knows her place, for the nobility frown on their titled sons marrying a merchant’s daughter.
The Earl of Camberley, a renowned rake, is expected to propose to a young lady of his mother’s choosing. But Camberley can’t bring himself up to scratch. Instead, he drinks himself into a stupor and ends up in Lucy’s bedchamber.
What a hullabaloo! When a maid discovers the naked lord in the merchant’s daughter bed, Camberley feels duty bound to propose. But when Lucy refuses to marry him, Camberley must convince the merchant’s daughter to take a chance on him.
The Earl and the Merchant’s Daughter is a clean, sweet, stand alone Regency romance.
