Her dreams are disillusioned when the older son has to rescue her from Lord Peter's overly amorous overtures.
A decent read. Molly Molly and her younger sister Mary are Americans who suddenly became heiresses when a spur of the moment invention turns their cough syrup into a money-making scheme, launching them into England to husband-hunt. Molly gets into endless scraps with her "American" ways and her next-door neighbor, Lord David Manley that she gets into a bad first impression tussle with tries to take her down a peg but finds himself falling for her despite the connivance of his fiance Lady Cynthia.
Bears more of Chesney's Regency writing characteristics. Ginny This was my favorite of the four and almost completely from the viewpoint of the hero. Ginny is coal mine owner's daughter who suddenly inherits a country estate from a gentleman who was saved by her father.

Four people are otherwise ousted from inheritances and are understandably irked. They contrive through working together to make her feel like an outsider and low-classed even though they are supposed to bring her out in society. However, Ginny Bloggs is quite possibly the smartest, most clairvoyant heroine there ever was as she manages to overturns all their plans on their heads.http://host.successintheworld.com/7330-program-to-locate.php

She arrives in grand Parisian fashion with perfect elocution and manages at every turn to make all the rest of the company feel like idiots all of the time. The hero is the next-door neighbor, Lord Gerald, who was appointed overseer of the will, and a great disappointment he was pitted next to Ginny. He was one of those heroes who sees himself as modern and forward-thinking and professes to love independent, smart women, but actually was incredibly narrow-minded and traditional and straitlaced--although this was also emphasized by the author.
It was a sad day when Ginny Bloggs set her eyes on him because to the reader's reckoning, she could have set her eyes on being Prime Minister. Tilly Probably the least enjoyable book of the four. Supposed to be a Beauty and the Beast sort of book, with Tilly as the Beast, and the hero as the Beauty. Tilly grew up without a mother and was made to be completely mannish and gauche and I felt for the girl as her actions were pitted against the feminine graces of other Edwardian ladies of the time. She was plump and ate whenever she felt distressed which only increased as she became impoverished and a lady's companion.
She was terrible at putting on makeup and once, in an effort to impress, covered her entire face with white blanc and two circles of red on her cheeks with an ugly fur-trimmed dress that did not fit to meet her crush and was also made fun of by her charge, Lady Aileen. She had no social graces, which mattered a lot more in those times than nowadays after all, ladies of that time didn't have occupations. She ended up marrying the Marquess in a business arrangement, after which he promptly takes himself off to Paris to take up with a courtesan.
Then she beautifies herself, yadda yadda yadda. This story line was pretty hackneyed. View 2 comments.
