Love in the Ballroom
He cannot obtain his fortune without first obtaining a bride.
Charlotte Clarke wants nothing more than to experience a London Season. But when she finds out she has to wait another year due to her sister’s recent pregnancy, she is crushed. All is not lost as a letter arrives soon after summoning Charlotte to Danbury Hall to meet her new guardian, John Wilkins. With little choice but to go, she determines to contrive a way to convince her new guardian to take her to London in her sister’s stead.
John Wilkins spent the last four years running his family’s plantation in the Caribbean. When he returns to England after his father’s death, he learns that not only is he the guardian of his estranged cousin, but his father amended his will: John will not inherit anything until he marries or turns thirty. Eager to attend the Season and obtain a bride, he agrees to take Charlotte with him.
Charlotte takes on the Season, searching for love while assisting Mr. Wilkins in finding a suitable bride. But what she doesn’t count on is falling in love with him herself.
