GABRIELLA, my very first published book, was originally a 1992 Harlequin Regency.
A lost wager obliges the Duke of Ravenham to bring a pretty little nobody from the country into fashion for the London Season. That irksome duty turns into something quite different as he falls under the spell of his protege’s innocent charm. Gabriella is in London at her mother’s insistence, but she’d much rather assist in running her father’s veterinary practice than attempt to fit into fashionable society. But the more time she spends in the dashing Duke’s company, the more conflicted she feels— particularly when she discovers they have more in common than she ever dared dream.
