Join the The Ladies’ Society For The Care of the Widows and Orphans of Fallen Heroes and the Children of Wounded Veterans in their pursuit of justice, charity, and soul searing romance.
The Napoleonic Wars have left England with wounded warriors, fatherless children, unemployed veterans, and hungry families. The ladies of London, led by the indomitable Duchess of Haverford plot a campaign to feed the hungry, care for the fallen—and bring the neglectful Parliament to heel. They will use any means at their disposal to convince the gentlemen of their choice to assist.
Their campaign involves strategy, persuasion, and a wee bit of fun. Pamphlets are all well and good, but auctioning a lady’s company along with her basket of delicious treats is bound to get more attention. Their efforts fall amid weeks of fog and weather so cold the Thames freezes over and a festive Frost Fair breaks out right on the river. The ladies take to the ice. What could be better for their purposes than a little Fire and Frost?

The Umbrella Chronicles
Chester and Artemis’s Story
By Amy Quinton
Beastly duke seeks confident any woman who doesn’t faint at the sight of his scars. Prefers not to leave the house to find her.
There comes a time in every bachelor’s life, when his good-natured but meddling sister gets it into her mind to play matchmaker. And in every occasion, they contact none other than Lady Harriett Ross, self-proclaimed Motley Meddler, the Mistress of Destiny, and Wielder of the Infamous Umbrella.
Enter the Duke of Eastly. A man with just such a sister. He has scars, thinks society is nonsense, and prefers to stay far away from any and all shenanigans. But he could never resist his sibling, who tells him a sorrowful tale of woe, of a dear friend’s shy plight ahead of an important auction at the Frost Fair of 1814. No worries. He has the perfect solution. Help is on the way!
Enter the friend, Miss Artemis Synclaire. The precise opposite of timid and shy. And as such, she won’t stand for the Beast’s asinine resolution. She’d rather dine with an elephant (which could actually be arranged) than deal with a man such as he.
Can two such stubborn people ever bend enough to discover they’ve found their perfect match?
