282 pages4 hours


MISS ELIZA'S GENTLEMAN CALLER is a clean, sweet Regency Romance by Marilyn Clay. Miss Eliza Foxburn is alarmed when her widower father begins courting a young lady whose father is in trade! Worse, the chit is only nineteen, just a year older than Eliza! The tendre is making her father look like an old fool. What better way to make him see reason than to encourage an impossibly older man to come courting her!

General March Huntley, a dashing officer of thirty-eight, is hardly over the hill. Back in London after Waterloo, he's making female hearts flutter and is vastly surprised when the lively Miss Eliza Foxburn asks him to call on her. When she steals a kiss, Huntley is pleased. When he learns she is only playing a foolish game, Huntley, known as Wellington's Master Strategist, plans a battle of his own: to outfox Miss Foxburn and teach her a lesson . . . in love.
