An Uncommon Bequest
The Unexpected Season

She never expected the secret bequest that would allow her to have a London season. ..and to come face-to-face with her distant cousin, Jonathan, the Viscount Lowell.
Sophie had been an impetuous schoolgirl when he'd claimed her lips in a soul-stealing kiss. She wanted to despise him for awakening such powerful feelings, then simply walking off as though he hadn't upended her world. And he still treated her like a vapid young girl. She simply had to show him that she could take the ton by storm and have marriage offers by the dozen. Yet when Jonathan held her in his arms for a dizzying waltz, Sophie feared that no matter who proposed, only one man owned her heart....
