LOVING LADY MARCIA
In the House of Brady, three very lovely girls have hair of gold―and hearts to match―but finding a match among the gentlemen of London is one comedy of errors that could bring down the house…
MARCIA GETS SCHOOLED…
Of the three Brady sisters, Lady Marcia has always seemed the girl most likely to lead a perfectly charmed life. But after a handsome cad breaks her heart, she swears off love and devotes her life to teaching girls at a private school. In spite of her family's wish for a London debut, Marcia is happy where she is―until terrible news sends her back to the Brady clan…and into the arms of an unexpected suitor.
ON THE SUBJECT OF LOVE
A dark and dashing earl who knows Marcia's past, Duncan Lattimore is surprised by what a fascinating and independent woman she's become. Marcia, too, is surprised―by the fiery attraction she feels for Duncan. But why―why―must he be the brother of the scoundrel who broke her heart? Why must Marcia's rival at school forbid her from seeing him? How can this lady possibly resist this fellow―when they know that it's much more than a hunch…?

Take your time, Marcia told herself, sensing that this was a crucial moment in her quest to save her school. Whoever would have thought the winning of such a momentous objective would come down to eating cakes with cherries on top? And sipping strong, hot tea? The clock on

Without another word, he undressed her, sliding her gown and chemise off her shoulders and running his tongue around the buds of her breasts before suckling them, his mouth sweet and warm upon her skin. She threw her head back and reveled in the exquisite sensation. And then he ran his hands down her sides, adoring her, and sent her gown and chemise to the floor in a puddle of pink and

She’d been crying, as well. Her eyes were red-rimmed. But when she walked through that door, she was fierce, so fierce Marcia took a step back. Mama strode past her. “Shut the door.” Marcia fumbled with it to lock it again, but her hands were shaking, still. So she leaned her back on it to press it closed. She and Mama

But he is the head of this household, and he has to do what he thinks is right.” “You could have stopped him, Mama. You know he’d do nothing that went against your wishes.” “True.” Mama tugged on Marcia’s hand and made her look her in the eye. “But I agree with Daddy. I think this is the best possible solution.
