Quintet: Five Regency Short Stories
The first story of a bachelor in His Majesties Navy is offered an assignment to find an informant at an estate that is holding holiday festivities. He must discover the informants identity while keeping his cover. Knowing the activities of Napoleon are essential. Mark has no idea it will lead to happiness.
The second story. A young man traveling home after dark in his carriage from an errand perceives a commotion at an abandoned estate. Stopping to investigate, he discovers an heiress locked in a secret room. Intrigue and love make unexpected turns in this tale of betrayal.
Three more stories follow. Intrigue and sleuthing are regular themes with a touch of romance. The situations are new and different for all the stories and the outcomes not so predictable.
Short stories are an art unto themselves, as the author must build a world and characters within a limited frame. The author is quite adept at these qualities. With a flair of the era, along with intriguing characters, the reader is pulled into the stories. A pure delight for readers who love Regency romances.
