She needs a rescue. He's her only hope.
When Lucy Tolson's father dies, she must either marry quickly or go to live with her uncle. For Lucy, there is only one choice, and his name is Philip Dobney.
To be presented with an offer of marriage from a long time friend is shocking to be sure! But the thought is not unwelcome. After all, Philip, who has recently received the living at Kympton, is in need of a wife, and Lucy is more than qualified to be a parson's wife.
However, what seems to be a simple solution soon becomes complicated when Lucy's uncle and Wickham show up with plans to gain enough money to cover debts and secure the living that Wickham, at one time, refused. Events from the past combined with threats in the present threaten to tear Lucy and Philip apart unless Darcy can help his friends save their blossoming love and rid Lucy of her uncle once and for all.
And Then Love, set in the spring before Darcy goes to Hertfordshire, is a Pride and Prejudice variation prequel and the first book in Leenie Brown's Willow Hall Romance Series. If you like well-written sweet romance that features ruthless, scheming villains and characters who capture your heart and become your friends, then you'll love this story about good triumphing over evil and a marriage of convenience that is so much more.
So put the kettle on, grab your copy of And Then Love, and make your first visit to Willow Hall, a place where love is bound to surprise you and which you will wish to visit over and over again.
