A Loveless Wedding

When the Honorable Trevor Jeffries loses everything at cards, there’s only one way to cancel the debt—by marrying his opponent’s unwanted ward, Miss Caitlin Woodbridge, a country girl fresh from the schoolroom. Their forced union proves to be a glum affair; and Trevor, leaving Caitlin well provided for, hastily escapes from it by enlisting for the Peninsula and urging her to seek an annulment.

A Passionate Reunion

Seven years have transformed Caitlin into a nonpareil of style and charm, adept in the enrichment of her long—lost husband’s estate. Though her senses flame at the sight of her handsome bridegroom, she cannot forget his abrupt abandonment and long silence. But before she will surrender to him his heritage, and her heart, Trevor will have to vie with half the young bloods of London in an ardent courtship—of his own wife!

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.
