The mysterious Miss Meredith Thorn and her beloved cat, Fortune, open an employment agency to help gentlewomen down on their luck. Her first assignment? Finding a governess for the three young daughters of the Duke of Wey. Odd how all her matches end up in matrimony.

Enjoy three warm, witty stories that begin the bestselling Fortune's Brides series by award-winning author Regina Scott:

  • Never Doubt a Duke--When the irrepressible Jane Kimball takes the governess' position with the Duke of Wey, everyone has doubts. But when the duke must take a wife, thoughts turn to an unlikely governess who might make the perfect bride. "An absolutely delightful tale!" Britt Reads Fiction
  • Never Borrow a Baronet--Patience Ramsey is shocked when her new employer introduces her as the bride-to-be of her nephew. The pretty Patience could cover for Sir Harry when he spies for England. Can he convince her to overlook the scandals surrounding him and exchange their false engagement for a true love? "Regina is hooking me from the first page, and I don't want to set the book down until I finish the story!" For the Love of Christian Fiction
  • Always Kiss at Christmas--In the origin story for Meredith Thorn, she has one goal for her mother's Christmas Eve party: convince her friend Julian Mayes to marry her. Julian is ready to make his mark in London. As the danger to Meredith's future becomes clear, will one kiss prove to him how far he will go to protect her? "Witty, lighthearted, sweet, and romantic."
