There's No Accounting For Attraction...

Twenty-four and unattached, Lady Allyson Crossleigh considers herself happily free of the marriage mart frenzy. If she has her way—and she usually does—her future will be one of independence and adventure. But adventure comes sooner than expected after an attempt to kidnap her is foiled by a handsome laborer whom Allyson’s father then hires to protect her. Having Nathan Christopher shadowing her every move is at first infuriating—yet as she begins to know him better, Allyson feels her heart opening a man Society will never accept!

...And No Denying True Love

Nathan Christopher Thornton is a gentleman with plans—and trolling the ton for a wife isn't among them. So he's at a bit of a loss when he finds himself acting as protector to one of Society's most attractive ladies. On medical leave from the army, Nathan agreed to assist the Earl of Rutherford with some delicate undercover work which has since come to include watching over the man's daughter. At first, Lady Allyson is merely a very pretty nuisance—yet she soon becomes a great deal more. And if Nathan thought concealing his true identity was difficult, keeping his love under wraps will be even more so...

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.
