Gwendeline by Jane Ashford
Penniless! Gwendeline, just 18 and totally unsuited to earn her own way in the world, was to be evicted from her country, estate.
Then the butler ushered in a tall, rather arrogant visitor. Lord Merryn. He had, it seemed, been a friend of her late parents, who had lived too well and too briefly--squandering their fortune and then meeting death in a carriage accident.
But Gwendeline was an older orphan than Lord Merryn had expected; she was a young lady and must be introduced to London society. Quickly, he invented a "group of her parents' friends" to finance her debut.
Never must she learn that he alone was her benefactor--nor why.
