Sometimes things aren’t the way you thought they were…
At 23, Pippa Waterston feels truly a spinster. She has fond memories of her only London season, when she was 18, but she didn’t take. She knows why — the Earl of Upminster gave her the nickname “Freckles.”
The handsome earl has moved next door, into a property which Pippa’s brother lost to him at cards.
To her annoyance, no matter how much Pippa tries to avoid him, he seems set on putting himself in her way.
You’ll enjoy this sweet Regency romance short story. It’s the first in the Follyjohn Gossip series.
New: the Follyjohn Gossip series of regency romances
When He’s (Not) Perfect is the first story in our Follyjohn Gossip Series of Regency romance short stories.
Gossip fuels Follyjohn, a small English village. Follyjohn is a mere half-day’s ride from London, which is no distance at all, and many of the great and the good reside in the county around Follyjohn. Compared with other country folk, the villagers consider themselves sophisticated.
The villagers gossip about the noble folk living in the great houses. They also gossip about each other. Everyone know everyone else. Strangers are rare and suspect.
I hope you enjoy getting to know Follyjohn, and the people who live there.
