Hampshire, 1818 To her family, Olivia Middleton is a problem of the most vexing sort. With her older two sisters married off, Olivia is now the target of her mother's matrimonial scheming. Shy and somewhat plain, Olivia prefers the thrill of a gothic novel to the hunt for a husband. And as far as her family is concerned, something must be done. But Olivia has no interest in the men paraded before her-except, perhaps, the sought-after bachelor William Cross. But she's not about to inflate his already oversized ego by telling him so. William has sworn never to wed, but that doesn't mean he can't enjoy women. What he excels at most is flirtation... unless the woman is question is Olivia Middleton. She barely bats an eyelash at his most creative compliments. She laughs at his attempts to flatter her when other ladies would swoon. William is reluctantly intrigued by Olivia, particularly when he discovers the passion simmering beneath her wallflower facade. A passion that should be to his benefit... Because he's determined to impress her, by fair means or foul...She heard Lord Ashwortha#39;s voice. aShall we try the library?a The door rattled fromtheother side, but thankfully didna#39;t budge. aOdd, a he said. aIt seems the door is stuck.I suppose wea#39;ll have to continue on.a aWhat if the ghost is in the library?
