The Jewel of an Earl's Heir
Margaret spends her days assisting her father in the creation of jewelry for the wealthy. Her knowledge of gemstones is gleaned from years of watching him work and dealing with gem merchants. Although she's old enough to be out in Society, embarrassment over her withered arm keeps her in the shop. What's she to do when her latest client insists she attend a ball? He can secure an invitation and has promised her two dances, but is it worth being subjected to the censure and gossip her arm is sure to elicit? Or the wrath of the gem merchant to whom her father owes so much? His proposal might solve the debt issue, but at what price to her?
Meanwhile, their impending wedding anniversary has Alexander's parents reacting in much different ways. Middle age has Harold remembering his youth and fearing his mortality while Stella isn't ready to succumb to the preconceived notions of what it is to be a matron with grown children. Their solution may require they meet in the middle—of a bed.
