So This Is Love: An Austen-inspired Regency

Newly escaped from a loathsome engagement of convenience . . . Charlotte has no interest in romance. More than ever, she is convinced that no man would—or could—love her. As companion to an aging aunt, Charlotte’s new life is as predictable as it is circumspect. But on Christmas Eve she is rescued from a robbery by her uncle’s heir, a masterful man who is disastrously handsome. Why has he remained as a guest in the house? Why is he so determined to draw Charlotte out and make her talk? It isn’t as if he likes her! Romance is not on the chart for Captain Jack Blunt. Never again will he be played for that kind of fool! He is ashore only to heal from an injury and see to business, nothing more. And yet the pointed disinterest of his cousin’s pert niece is intriguing. She is forthright, refreshingly honest—and altogether lovely. She will make a fine wife for one of his officers. But not, of course, for him. So This Is Love is a joyride of a sweet Regency, bringing whirlwind romance and happily-ever-after to staid and practical Charlotte Lucas. “Absolutely perfect, hitting every note with all the feels.” – ROBIN HELM, author of Understanding Elizabeth and More to Love
