Love and the Library Book 2: Ellen and Laurence
Lightning doesn’t strike in the same place twice. Does it?
Regency gentleman Mr. Laurence Coffey doesn’t care for libraries and novels. His interests run to steam engines and mathematics. But his friend found the lady of his dreams at the library over a copy of Pride and Prejudice. Laurence yearns for a lady of his own, one of wit and cleverness as well as beauty. And while he doesn’t expect his friend’s luck, visiting the library can’t hurt.
Miss Ellen Palmer enjoys mathematics, but, unfortunately, many men frown on bluestockings. She loves the library and its mathematics books as well as its novels, especially her favorite, Pride and Prejudice. How she would like to find her own Mr. Darcy. Perhaps someday, somewhere, she can discover a man who wants an intelligent woman.
At the library, they both reach for a copy of Pride and Prejudice at the same time. Can their mutual interest in numbers–and this particular novel–make their dreams come true?
A sweet, traditional Regency romance novella, but not a retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
