First Comes Marriage

Book 2 of the The House of Uncommons Series

Catriona Fergusson never expected to wind up in a London workhouse, but then, she never expected to be disowned by her family or to become a married man’s mistress. Falling pregnant when her protector believes he cannot father children is simply the latest calamity to strike her. Turned out of her home and stripped of funds, she has few choices and fewer friends.

Recently elected to the House of Commons, Noel Langston is on a mission to reform England’s cruel treatment of the poor, especially women and children. So when he stumbles upon the pregnant mistress of his bitterest political rival during a visit to a workhouse, he sees an opportunity to fulfill his goals…and to ruffle the feathers of her former protector.

First comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. Can love come last?
