A rakish colonel wanting a wife locks horns with a headstrong beauty in this Regency romance.
A virtuous virgin—that's what he needed
A thrifty, industrious, wholesome bride! Certainly not an exotic aristocrat like Clarissa Beaumont, who set trends and dazzled suitors with equal passion. A more unsuitable wife St. John Sandiford found impossible to imagine! Why then couldn't he get Clarissa out of his mind—or his heart?
A good set-down—that's what he deserved!
Though Sinjin Sandiford was rightly called "hero," he could sometimes fall short of "gentleman," Lady Beaumont fumed. Why, the cad had refused her help in making an advantageous match—yet still he managed to stir the most unseemly feelings within her . . . !
Praise for The Proper Wife
"A spirited Regency-era romance that far outshines the usual fare. . . . Readers will devour [Justiss's] tantalizing tale with gusto." —Publishers Weekly
"Justiss skillfully blends traditional Regency attention to detail with a touch of humor and of irony, but, best of all, with a witty love story." —Romantic Times
