Too Oft Betrothed

We all have books of the heart. Too Oft Betrothed is one of mine. 
This book is dedicated to my son and to every child and adult who the world sees as handicapped or disabled or mentally challenged—or whatever the latest buzz words might be. I hope it encourages my readers to realize that people like my son and like Matthew are capable of much more than the world often realizes. Our lives are richer when we look with open eyes and get to know them and discover who they really are. 


A brother with a disability, a fiancé lost at sea, a truly nasty villainess and an American in London in 1812 while feelings still run high between Britain and the former colonies . . . what could possibly go wrong?
Judith Bosworth, of Philadelphia, loved Mr. Gilbert but he was captured by the British and they say he was lost at sea. She arrives in London, with her beloved mentally challenged brother, Matthew, in tow, determined to find out what really happened to Mr. Gilbert and whether a doctor there can help Matthew. 

Sir Richard Warfield thought it would be a good idea for his mother to invite Miss Bosworth to visit. Now he must shepherd both Judith and her brother safely through the shoals of London society. His task is even more complicated when a former love tries to destroy not only him but any possible object of his affection.

Together they must find a way to outwit those who would harm them—or Judith's beloved brother—and the answers she seeks. Love wasn't supposed to be part of the equation.

Note: The primary romance has been totally rewritten in this updated version of the book which was previously published as a Signet Traditional Regency with the original title of Twice Betrothed.

Note:  Some long time readers of my books may recognize parts of Too Oft Betrothed as being very much like another book of mine, Twice Betrothed, written and published years ago as a Signet Traditional Regency Romance. I have never been happy with some of the choices I made, in a misguided effort to write what I thought would please my editor so she would agree to publish the book. When I got the rights back, I was determined never again to let it see the light of day unless I completely rewrote the primary romance. I'm delighted to have accomplished this and can now release the revised book with a new title: Too Oft Betrothed.
