The Fensters were like many other proper Victorian families -- in every way but one. Ignoring the grim convention that one married for wealth and title, these spirited siblings followed their hearts...and vowed to wed only for love.


Three years ago, Valentine Fenster had tried to elope with Emily Weatherley, his heart's true love. Unfortunately, their plans were thwarted and Valentine, having compromised Emily's reputation, was forced to agree never to pursue her again. But when he learns that her title-conscious parents have betrothed her to an aging marquis who is an abuser of women, Valentine knows he can no longer stand aside. His passionate longing for Emily and his desire to protect her leads him back to her arms. And yet, because there remains his solemn promise to stay away from her, Valentine knows he cannot make Emily his bride. Still, some promises are made to be broken.

About the author (2001)

Kelly McClymer was born in South Carolina, but crossed the Mason-Dixon line to live in Delaware at age six. After one short stint living in South Carolina during junior high, she has remained above the line, and now lives in Maine with her husband and three children.

Writing has been Kelly's passion since her sixth grade essay on how to not bake bread earned her an A plus. After cleaning up the bread dough that oozed on to the floor, she gave up bread making for good and turned to writing as a creative outlet. A graduate of the University of Delaware (English major, of course) she spends her days writing and teaching writing. Look for her next book, "The Salem Witch Tryouts, " from Simon Pulse in Fall 2006.
