Beauty and The Beholder

Remember that anthology I got to work on with three awesome authors? It’s releasing in just two months! Unexpected Love: A Marriage of Convenience Anthology is the official title, and here is the gorgeous cover:

This anthology consists of four marriage of convenience stories in a range of settings and time periods.

ASHBROOK ABBEY by Heather Chapman

FIRST COMES MARRIAGE by Paula Kremser

THE PRICE OF HER HEART by Mandi Ellsworth

and…

BEAUTY AND THE BEHOLDER by Me 🙂

This story was a lot of fun to write. I learned a lot from my characters through the weaknesses they were able to overcome and the lessons they learned. It was great to see Percy’s icy facade melt through Fanny’s energetic and often funny personality. Percy finds happiness and a very unexpected love he didn’t think he was capable of having after he lost something very dear to him.

Without further ado, here is the synopsis for Beauty and The Beholder. 

Marriage was never in Fanny Clarke’s plans. Every since a disastrous fire left her scarred, she doubted such a flaw could ever be overlooked by a man. Under the care of her grandmother, she lives her life of solitude without question. But with Fanny’s grandmother on her deathbed, she knows that soon she will be left destitute–unless she marries.

All the riches of his estate could never make Percy Wellington happy. At least not after he went blind. When his staff deserts his estate, he is left under the care of his cousin. But when Percy’s cousin informs him of his planned departure, Percy begins to doubt his ability to care for himself alone.

When a marriage arranged by chance brings Fanny and Percy together, they quickly learn that clashing personalities and battles of wit are not a recipe for a happy match. How could a marriage between quick enemies ever result in something such as love? But fate has a way of bringing even the most unlikely hearts together.
