Historical Romance Novella

England , 1816

They met in the country at a May Day festival. She was hesitant to give her name to a stranger, so they called themselves Tristan and Isolde. By the end of the day, they both knew they were much, much more than strangers. But things don't always work out the way one wishes. They lost each other for nine years. In that time, Tristan rose in the ranks to become Captain Nikolas Acton of the Royal Navy. Isolde is now Lady Patricia Morgan, a widow with two beloved sons. They are each given a mission to search for and find a treasure. As they travel, their paths converge and they meet on the road.

Nik and Patricia never forgot each other, but their meeting is not smooth; deeply felt hurt and misunderstandings are involved.

A LADY'S WISH is a heart-felt and passionate short episode that falls between the full-length Avon historical romances, SWEPT AWAY BY A KISS (July 2010) and CAPTURED BY A ROGUE LORD (this April). Then comes IN THE ARMS OF A MARQUESS (next August). Published exclusively in electronic format, A LADY'S WISH is a bargain at only $1.99. It gives a taste of the exciting trilogy and includes a peek at CAPTURED BY A ROGUE LORD.
