The Golden Redepennings

True love is rare and elusive, but they won’t settle for less

Regency Society calls them the Golden Redepennings, because they seem to have it all: good looks, wealth, social connections, and a strong loyalty to one another.

Appearances can be deceptive. The family tree is replete with rakes and neglected wives, though each generation has one much cherished exception: a true marriage; a partnership of mutual love and respect.

The odds are not good for the cousins of Regency times, especially since Rick Redepenning won his Mary. Besides, each cousin hides wounds that make them unwilling to risk their hearts, until danger threatens the one person who tempts them to change their mind.
