Feature book: The Seduction of Lady Charity
The Seduction of Lady Charity by Maggi Andersen
Lady Charity Baxendale is an artist, and a good one. She is very much beloved by her father, mother and sisters. Charity is also the second youngest sister and her father has given up trying to get his daughters to marry who he wants and lets them marry for love. Robin is Charity’s childhood friend. He is also a Viscount who inherits a dukedom. Before his departure to the dukedom’s seat, Robin proposes to Charity. She rejects him as she feels that he needs time to adjust to being the duke. But there is a glitch in the system when a possible heir turns up. As he is trying to learn more about his new role, he misses Charity, and stops writing her letters to cause some reaction. There is a reaction but not what he expects.
Charity and her family are in the area and visit. Charity hears that Robin is ‘almost’ engaged and decides to back off. Fortunately for Charity her father is in her corner and gives Robin some advice on how to win her.
I like how these stories have developed and the involvement of the whole family in each other’s lives. There are not too many series that do this. It is great to see there is little angst between the sisters and the parents which makes the stories flow. I have really enjoyed these stories and will now have to wait patiently for Mercy’s story.
