An Independent Woman

Braving the censure of the ton, Cymberly Winthrop decides to follow the drum by joining her father, Colonel Charles Winthrop, in Portugal. No sooner is Cymberly in Lisbon than she witnesses a handsome man rescuing a drowning child. That man is Geoffrey Ryder, a distant member of the family that cruelly disinherited Cymberly’s mother. She’d rather ignore her attraction to him—and welcome the attentions of another soldier—even though it is Geoffrey’s kisses, and not her suitor’s, that light the deepest ardor in her...

An Honorable Soldier

Geoffrey Ryder has never come upon anyone like Cymberly Winthrop. Unlike most well bred ladies, Miss Winthrop is not above the unpleasant task of caring for the wounded. If only she weren’t so besotted with Lieutenant Fleming, a man of deceptive character. But Geoffrey is up for the challenge, and somehow he will find a way to convince the woman he loves that he isn’t the rogue she believes him to be—and that her heart belongs with him…


About Wilma Counts:

Before moving to Nevada in 1994, Wilma Counts taught high school English and social studies in Germany to dependents of American forces stationed there. She loved the kids, but hated meaningless paperwork. She especially enjoyed her work with Advance Placement English, Model United Nations, and student exchanges with a Russian school.

Wilma grew up in Oregon, a product of the Leave It To Beaver era. She holds degrees in education and international relations. Having traveled widely, she is keenly interested in politics and international relations. She freely admits to being a C-SPAN junkie.

A member of the Romance Writers of America, she has written two Regency novels and a novella for Zebra. Willed to Wed is slated for publication in September, '99, and My Lady Governess in February, '00. Her current projects include another Regency and a novel set in the American West. She contributes a regular column on grammar and usage to the local RWA newsletter. Besides her interest in travel and writing, Wilma is an avid reader and she loves to cook, garden, and gamble—not necessarily in that order.
