Her Country Gentleman is the first book in the Timeless Georgian Collection, a new anthology series from Mirror Press. The book features three novellas from bestselling historical romance authors whose stories reveal that not all love is found in London.
“Spring at Tribbley Hall,” by Sian Ann Bessey
Charlotte's grandmother invites her to accompany her to Norfolk, Charlotte
jumps at the chance to visit the sea and escape the fuss surrounding her
sister's wedding preparations in London. Lord William Cheston, on the other
hand, is most unhappy when his mother informs him that her old friend and a
granddaughter are coming to stay. Not only is it lambing season, but he's also
dealing with the mysterious loss of several sheep. The last thing he needs is a
child underfoot. When Charlotte and William first meet, he does not realize
that the lovely young lady is the granddaughter in question, and she assumes
that the man dressed in work clothes in the barn is a servant. Soon afterward,
however, Charlotte stumbles upon a clue to William's sheep's disappearance, and
when her life is placed in jeopardy, William is forced to choose between saving
his unwanted houseguest and catching the thief.
“Love of My Heart,” by Sarah M. Eden
Wakefield has never lived anywhere but London and is not overly happy when her
family is forced to retrench to a small estate near Teviotbrae, Scotland. An
ill-fated game of battledore and shuttlecock brings her face-to-racquet with
Sebastian, who runs the home farm at nearby Teviot Castle. What begins as a
clash of personalities, expectations, and preferences, soon leads to a
friendship neither had expected. As the magic of Teviotbrae weaves its spell,
the possibility of something more than friendship begins to blossom. But what
future is there for a lowly farmer and a London lady?
“Miss Smith Goes to Wiltshire,” by Rebecca Connolly
Martha Smith wants to marry for love and will not be persuaded otherwise. She is highly sought after in Society for her beauty and status but refuses to consider any suitor whose only claim is that his prospects meet with her mother's approval. Her widowed mother has had enough of Martha's romantic sensibilities and is sending her to stay with unfortunate cousins in Wiltshire to show her that marrying for love is a risk that is too great. Benjamin Steele, Lord Hillier, is working on his new and dilapidated estate when he first catches sight of the striking Martha Smith. Becoming Lord Hillier has only brought him a house that needs significant repairs, tenant farms that had been abandoned, and only the money he'd already possessed. He wants meaning in his life, and he's more than willing to work for it. Though worlds apart in all else, on this point they can agree: a life of meaning would change everything.

When Lissie Dairton heads to New York City to visit her aunt and uncle, her only regret is that her older sister Nett can’t come along. Her remedy is to write witty and insightful letters keeping Nett informed of her adventures in the big city—from dealing with their beastly aunt and refusing advances from a ghastly suitor to attending plays with heiresses and falling in love with a dashing Mr. Elwood.
From afar, Nett replies with her usual practicality as she tries to keep her flightier sister’s feet on the ground. But soon, Nett is swept up in her own adventure as she meets the brother of Lissie’s prospective beau. Levelheaded, caring, and sensible, the elder Elwood brother seems like the answer to all her dreams. But what at first seems like happiness becomes confusion as Nett’s almost-suitor begins acting stiff and distant.
Lissie remains convinced that she and her sister will marry the Elwood brothers, but Nett is uncertain. With family disapproval and the seeming disinterest from the elder brother, how can there possibly be a satisfactory end for everyone?
