It's Pub Day for SUITORS AND SABOTAGE!
In which falling for the wrong gentleman is the least of a lady’s worries.
Shy aspiring artist Imogene Chively has just had a successful Season in London complete with a suitor of her father’s approval. Imogene is ambivalent about the young gentleman until he comes to visit her at the Chively estate with his younger brother in tow. When her interest is piqued, however, it is for the wrong brother.
Charming Ben Steeple has a secret; despite being an architectural apprentice, he has no drawing aptitude. When Imogene offers to teach him, Ben is soon smitten by the young lady he considers his brother’s intended.
But hiding their true feelings becomes the least of their problems when, after a series of “accidents,” it becomes apparent that someone means Ben harm. And as their affection for each other grows—despite efforts to remain just friends—so does the danger…
