Her Sister's Fiancé #Wattys2016
A girl one could take home to one's mother with no fear of disapproval, that's what they all thought of Lady Lavinia Antrucha. In truth, she was nothing compared to her sister, Cassandra, but at least she didn't leave a trail of broken hearts behind her. Lavinia is the one people go to in trouble, the one who is supposed to be the stronger of the two Antrucha girls, the one her parents expected to stay with them for the rest of their lives because what man would want to marry plain, little Lavinia?
The most sought after bachelor in all of Scotland, the life of any given party, that's what they named Laird Ethan Brodi. He was the toast of high society and the man every mother yearned to see on their doorstep, asking for the hand of their fine daughter. He knew there was something more to life than petty women who couldn't see past his fine physique, and he intended to find it; that is, until his father decided he had spent enough time unmarried and forged an alliance with the rich Antruchas by promising him in marriage to the eldest daughter who would certainly match Ethan in good looks and fine tastes. As far as Ethan was concerned, Lady Cassandra Antrucha could take a long walk off a short pier, but his father's word was law, and so to England he must go to meet his future bride. Can he go through with a marriage when his heart yearns for another?
The title is a bit of a work in progress. . . .I'm not sure I'm totally satisfied with it. Also, the prologue thing might be pitched. . .This story was gonna go in a different direction, but it changed itself so now I'm along for the ride. . .
