    Summary

    The word of Netherfield Hall's being let spread rapidly through the town of Meryton, as news of great social import is generally wont to do in the countryside. And it was news of great import: Although it had stood empty for many years, Netherfield Hall was a fine estate, fine enough that whoever had let it must be quite well off. The rumor also went that they were foreigners, which only served to inflame the imaginations of Meryton's citizens all the more.

    In the summer of 1820, Lord Jean-Jacques Leroy, widely rumored to be a libertine and dandy, and his wife Isabella, invite a collection of friends and acquaintances to their countryside manor to celebrate the birth of their first child.

    Summary

    A novel written by a Lady

    ~ It is a Galactic truth that a single dark knight of the First Order with both fortune and family connexions… must be in want of a wife. ~

    ----------------

    Miss Rey Kenobi is the orphaned daughter of a respectable gentleman in the county of Jakkushire.

    She faces an uncertain future due to the family estate being entailed away from the female line upon the death of her aging grandfather, Sir Obiwan Kenobi. With no dowry or brothers, she has only her good name to recommend her. Rey is an independent young lady who is intent on remaining unmarried and becoming a Jedi. This greatly vexes her aunt Mrs Kanata, who would prefer to see her niece well-settled with an eligible husband.

    Rey’s provincial life starts to unravel at an opulent society ball when she meets the handsome and “forceful” Mr Ren of Coruscant, who takes a fancy to the ‘spirited’ Miss Kenobi.

    Summary

    “You like me,” Stiles repeated slowly.

    Greenberg nodded.

    “Alright.” Stiles had had this conversation before, and had developed a foolproof system to deals with the alphas who wanted to initiate a proper courtship even after talking to him for a few minutes. “What do you like about me?”

    Greenberg’s eyes widened in panic as the first thing that shot into his mind was undoubtedly: your dowry. So ample. So plentiful. “Your – your eyes,” Greenberg stuttered. “Are quite striking and remind me of, of – stars. Shining stars.”

    Stiles wasn’t impressed. “They remind you of globes of fire that float in the vast nothingness of space?”

     

    -- In which Stiles is tired of being courted and keeps running into Derek Hale, who proves to be the most irritating person Stiles ever had the displeasure of meeting.

Lord Quinn reluctantly agrees to woo Maranel and entail the Thrask estate on Baras in exchange for forgiving the debt.

    Summary

    Roderick Gold is about to complete his revenge on the Jones family by inheriting the family fortune and estate, but to his surprise there is one late acquisition: Jones was guardian to a young woman, and that guardianship now falls to Gold. Determined at first to marry her and make absolutely sure all of the Jones assets are under his control, he soon discovers that there is much more to Bella French than meets the eye.

    Belle French values nothing so much as her independence, and would far rather die an old maid than lose even a moment of freedom. Her new guardian is intriguing, though, and the more she learns about his past the more questions she has. His reputation doesn't quite match her own observations, and while she would love to uncover the mystery that is Roderick Gold, she must be very cautious lest she reveal her own secrets and ruin her own plans.
