Winterberry Spark – Merry Farmer

Gilbert Phillips pulled up the collar of his coat against the icy wind that blew through the West End and tucked his hands in his pockets. One street over, the bright gaslight and cheery music of London’s great theaters filled the air, bathing the whole area in its glow. An occasional peal of laughter split […]

Winterberry Fire – Merry Farmer

ada Bell stood at attention in line with the rest of the maids and footmen of Winterberry Park, trying not to shiver in the icy February breeze. She still didn’t quite understand why every servant in the house needed to stand out on display when the master of the house, Mr. Alexander Croydon, and his […]

When Lady Innocent Met Dr. Scandalous – Merry Farmer

Natalia Marlowe was in love. She knew it beyond a shadow of a doubt. She knew it even though her mother, the indomitable Lady Katya Campbell, frowned at her whenever she sighed dramatically over a particularly beautiful rose, or when she buried her nose in romantic novel after romantic novel, looking for comparisons between the […]

Venetian Sunshine – Merry Farmer

As far as Lord Trent McGovern had been able to determine in the week his family had been there so far, the ancient and lauded city of Venice was one, gigantic carnival. Laughter rang through the extensive palace that was currently serving as home to the entire, extended, McGovern clan. Dozens of candles and lanterns […]

Tuscan Sunrise – Merry Farmer

If there was one thing that the all-night ball at the Villa Torrigiani taught Lady Hattie McGovern, it was that she was completely unwilling to live her life on someone else’s terms. “The food was surprisingly good for that sort of a ball,” she said to her twin cousins, Heather and Sage, as they sagged […]

The Scandal of a Perfect Kiss – Merry Farmer

Henrietta Hopewell, Marchioness of Tavistock, was one of the most powerful women in London.

And while she commanded vast political resources in the capital, frequently […]

The Playful Wanton – Merry Farmer

A dolphus Gibbon, Bow Street runner, had a reputation for patience and persistence. He always caught his man in the end.

The Incorrigible Courtesan – Merry Farmer

The Disaster at Almack’s Assembly Rooms was only the beginning of the end for Miss Honor Barnes’s reputation. Even though she had played very little part in the crushing social faux pas her sister, Verity, had committed—standing by while Lady Charlotte Grey, a shining member of the ton, considered herself insulted beyond bearing—it was enough […]

The Holiday Hussy – Merry Farmer

Cold. Lady Alice Marlowe was freezing cold and huddled in the corner of her seat in the hired carriage that bumped and jostled along the frozen lane, heading toward Holly Manor. She could barely feel her fingers, and her toes had long since gone numb. It didn’t matter how tightly she pulled her shawl around […]

The Delectable Tart – Merry Farmer

It wasn’t fair. Sophie Barnes stood to one side of the grand parlor in her brother-in-law, the Marquess of Landsbury’s London townhome, watching the odd assortment of friends that her sisters had made over the last two months laughing, chattering, and congratulating her sister Honor on her marriage to wealthy merchant, Sebastian Boothe. Sophie stood […]

The Devilish Trollop – Merry Farmer

Hadnall Heath was the most beautiful estate Miss Felicity Murdoch had ever seen. The grand house was as magnificent as a palace in her eyes. If everything her dear friend, Lady Caroline Herrington, had written to her that spring was true—and Felicity was certain Caro would never lie, even if she was a notorious novelist […]

The Duke of Paris – Merry Farmer

It was doubtful that the Seine River had ever seen as much noise, fashion, and fuss as when the boat carrying the McGovern cousins sailed through the center of Paris. People passing on the riverwalk stopped to stare at them as they sailed past, gaping in astonishment at the bobbing collection of parasols and feathers […]

The Faithful Siren – Merry Farmer

This is a tragedy. An utter tragedy of Shakespearian proportions.” Lady Imogen Marlowe stared at her image in the long mirror propped in a corner of her bedroom, miserable to her core. Too much of her life had been misery, ever since her mother’s death nearly a decade ago. But things had gone from bad […]

The Clever Strumpet – Merry Farmer

Achange had come over the residents of Manchester Square, London in the six weeks since the Chandramukhi Diamond was stolen from the house owned by the East India Company and managed by Mr. Wakas Khan. A change, but not the sort of change Lady Caroline Pepys would have expected. On the one hand, the dozen […]

The Cheeky Minx – Merry Farmer

When the scandal surrounding Miss Dobson’s Finishing School broke like a wave crashing upon the shore of London’s high society, Miss Josephine Hodges was elated. Finally, the haughty mothers and indifferent fathers who had shunted their daughters off to such a horrible school—which was really more of a reformatory for young ladies ages eighteen to […]

The Charming Jezebel – Merry Farmer

It was still raining. Lady Ophelia Binghamton had never seen anything like it in her life. For weeks, the entire summer, the full length of the house party at Hadnall Heath, it had rained nearly constantly. The temperature hadn’t once risen above early spring levels. Ophelia had wrapped herself in a shawl every morning and […]

The Captive Vixen – Merry Farmer

Lady Lettuce Marlowe—or Mrs. Pigge, as she preferred not to be called—was awakened suddenly, not by the incessant rocking of the ship that had been her home for most of the miserable five weeks of her married life thus far, but by the boom of cannon-fire and the bloodthirsty shouts of unfamiliar male voices. She […]

The Brynthwaite Boys; S. #2, Ep. 5-8 – Merry Farmer

“Dearest Flossie,” Jason’s letter—the fifth one within a week—began. “London is abysmal. The weather is frigid and damp, the air is so thick with smoke that it’s nearly impossible to breathe, and the company I constantly find myself in is rotten at best. Lady E insists on dragging me to every fashionable soirée or popular […]

The Brynthwaite Boys, S. #2 – Merry Farmer

Flossie Stowe let out a long, satisfied sigh as her lover, the preeminent hotelier, Jason Throckmorton, collapsed beside her, his passion spent at last. “Good morning,” she murmured, a hint of teasing in her voice. Every morning was a good morning when it involved waking up in such a delicious way. Jason hummed as he […]

The Blushing Harlot – Merry Farmer

Miss Dobson’s Finishing School purported itself to be London’s premier institution for refining young women, aged eighteen to twenty-two, from the highest levels of society.
