Once a Dreamer (Avon Historical Romance)by Candice Hern
Synopses & Reviews
The fiery Miss Tennant wants satisfaction from the popular lady columnist who ruined young Belinda's life. But imagine Eleanor's surprise when she discovers the anonymous author of the odious advice is a disarmingly attractive man named Simon Westover! Well, the handsome cad is responsible for this outrage and he will set things right! As for Simon, he must protect his "Busybody" identity at all costs — and therefore agrees to help Eleanor scour the English countryside for missing Belinda and her paramour. But the intoxicating nearness of the exquisite lady — not to mention her dazzling emerald eyes and lush, kissable lips — is almost too much for a hopeless romantic like Simon to bear. Yet how can he convince Eleanor that he is no mere meddler but a passionate male with intense desires ... and prove to the stubborn, straightforward miss that dreams of love can come true?
A Regency-set historical romance, with wonderful emotion, adventure, and humour.
When Eleanor Tennant was called to look after her niece Belinda, she swore shed help her find the perfect suitor. Unfortunately, Belinda prefers the attentions of Geoffrey Barkwith, a handsome, notorious rake with an unsavoury reputation. In a letter to an advice columnist for The Ladies Fashionable Cabinet, Belinda asks the woman - should she go after her hearts desire? Her response is yes!
Eleanor, furious with this advice, goes in search of the mysterious Busybody. She finds out that the wretched woman giving such public encouragement is not a woman at all, but a man!
About the Author
Candice Hern has always enjoyed escaping into the history and literature of Regency England. After years of re-reading the novels of Jane Austen and other women of the period, she by chance discovered the great Georgette Heyer — and all her contemporary stepchildren — and was instantly hooked.
Candice lives in San Francisco in a house cluttered with African violets, orchids, Regency-period antiques, and mountains of reference books.
