A Regency Cinderella Tale--In Reverse
Once upon a time, a little girl, cherished by her father, received the news that she would have a new mother–a step-mother. In time two sisters–half-sisters–joined the family. The poor girl endured horrible treatment, lost the adoration of her father, and only through the love of a prince who took her from her miserable life, did the girl have a “happily ever after.”
This is not that story. Lady Charlotte Eversley, heir of the Earl of Everston, has lived a charmed life. Wealthy, beautiful, and one day she will be a Countess in her own right. No mother has ever loved a daughter more. Her sisters admire and adore her, and of course, her father dotes on her. She is one of the most eligible ladies of the Season.
Mr. Jasper Seyton misses the country. Along with his trusted servant, Worley, he endures the delights of Town for one purpose. After three Seasons, he has little confidence in the so-called “Marriage Mart.”
They enjoy each other’s company, and her father approves. She knows he intends to propose. He knows that she will accept.
So where is she when he returns to Everston Hall, and why does she think there is no hope for happiness again?
