Handsome, inarticulate Frank Newnham asks for his cousin Christian's help when he woos Rosanne Lacy by letter. Rosanne falls for Frank's delicious prose, but when they meet in person at a ducal house party, Rosanne can't understand why Frank seems so ... dull. And why is she drawn to the dark brooding Earl of Bruton, with his scarred face and air of melancholy?
This 32,000 words Regency novella was inspired by Cyrano de Bergerac - but with the happy ending readers crave. It was originally published in the anthology At The Duke's Wedding.
