Brides by Chance

 
A series of Regency romances in the tradition of Cinderella, now in the process of being reissued by Sapere Books as Brides by Chance Regency Adventures. One to Four are out, the others will be released in due course.
 
The stories follow one another but may be read out of sequence without spoiling the reader experience.
Here we have those women who could never hope to marry. Orphans, poor relations with no dowry, no social expectations. Existing in genteel poverty, or living on the bounty of others. Their stories are all different. We have adventure, scandal, suspense,  romps, runaways, mysterious fugitives and vanishing memories. Bucket loads of romance with heroines destined far beyond their wildest dreams.
