The Studious Man, Miss(ish)fits Book 1
When Miss Violette Hangbury meets two other misses wishing for husbands who appreciate animals rather than hunt them, they decide the wisest choices are scholars, rakes, and physicians. Meeting the studious Lord Tottham, Violette believes she could fall in love with such a clever and personable gentleman, but she wonders how to encourage him to court her.
Richard Woodley, the Viscount of Tottham, finds Miss Hangbury to be an uncommon delight, but he questions whether he is quite the right man for her lively temperament. Witty and artistic, she inspires him to feel worthy of her. Just when he does, his eagerness to come together physically causes them to split apart emotionally. He’ll need to use all of his considerable brainpower for one deceptively simple question: how do you get the girl back?
