Perfect for fans of the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn.
Virginia Summers is extremely fond of the Meadow House, which has been bestowed to her by her father. Even the thought of parting with it is inconceivable, debts are beginning to make her life difficult. Then, as fate would have it, a car accident almost at her doorstep presents her with the famous and handsome, although ill-tempered musician, Charles Digby Wickham. Virginia cannot be helped but be drawn to his charming, yet infuriatingly difficult musician. Can she consider being with this man, who has entered her life — it seems — by fate? The romance novel from the 20th century was written under one of Ida Pollock’s pseudonyms, Jane Beaufort.
