Summary

There is magic in the streets of Pippington, but most people are too busy to notice. 
Shoemaker Peter Talbot needs a little magic. Cheap, factory made, shoes are putting him out of business, his nagging sisters will never let him rest, and his efforts to find true love are constantly thwarted by worldly fickleness. However, the gift of a wild primrose and a shipment of rare griffin skin are about to change everything…When beautiful handmade shoes begin appearing in his shop every morning, Peter is determined to find the source. What he finds instead will be far more exciting and wondrous than he could ever imagine. 
The True Bride and the Shoemaker is the first of The Pippington Tales, introducing a city full of magic and everyday fairy tales for those willing to see them.

    RUINED BY A RAKE: When the only way to save the woman he loves from being forced into the wrong marriage is to ruin her, what's a rake to do? 
    Eleanor Abbington has always had a contentious and competitive relationship with Nicolas Norton. But when her uncle orders her to marry the man of his choosing, her old adversary becomes her only ally, and she may very well find herself…ruined by a rake. (Approximately 25,000 words) 
    SCANDALIZED BY A SCOUNDREL: When a viscount with a plan meets a woman with a past, neither will go down without a fight. 
    In all his years in the army, Lord Gabriel Winters never once would have described his opponent as beautiful. But when he finds himself staring down the barrel of Miss Amelia Watson’s pistol, it’s the only word that comes to mind. Despite her clear distrust of him—and not to mention his own determination to avoid English women at all costs—Gabriel is more than intrigued by his friend’s bold neighbor. 
    Amelia has plenty of reasons to distrust strangers, and the broad-shouldered, devilishly handsome viscount deserves no exception. But when he challenges her to lay down her weapon and learn to fight in a new way, she finds herself capitulating. Though the lessons start out innocently enough, the heady pull of attraction soon gets in the way. They’re as incompatible as water and gunpowder, so why is she suddenly looking forward to the thought of being . . . Scandalized by a Scoundrel? 
    (Approximately 26,000 words) 
    DECEIVED BY A DUKE: When strangers meet during a summer sojourn to the continent, love soon blossoms under the Spanish sun. But things aren't all what they seem. Can their burgeoning attraction withstand the shock of deceit? 
    As the niece of an earl, Elizabeth Abbington knows all about the stifling expectations and responsibilities placed upon peers of the realm. She has no desire to marry into that kind of life. Instead, she dreams of traveling abroad where she can put her talent for languages to good use. When her dear friend invites her on a trip to Spain, Libby jumps at the chance to begin her adventure. 
    After his younger brother loses a small fortune on the turn of a card, Philip Dain, Duke of Gillingham decides an intervention is in order. Determined to keep Nigel from falling into the lifestyle that ultimately destroyed their father, Philip offers a deal: if his brother can live in anonymity—without the privileges of their status—for a month with him in Spain, Philip will pay his debts outright. When Libby she falls into the role of their informal interpreter, the secret of his identity doesn’t matter at first. But as love blossoms under the Spanish sun, so too does his uncertainty of what will happen when she discovers she’s been . . . Deceived by a Duke. (Approximately 26,000 words) 
    A CHRISTMAS SURPRISE: A Second Epilogue. Join the family as they come together for Christmas at Aunt Margaret’s. The visit is an unexpected delight, but there is more than one surprise in store for the family matriarch! (Approximately 5,000 words)
