In the novel 1831: Charlotte Treleaven Comes of Age, handsome Robert Hattenbury is a cosmopolitan, rich, and sought-after bachelor. Fiercely protective of his high social standing, in opposition to his deceased fathers scandalous lifestyle, Robert seeks the perfect bride. Enter Charlotte Treleaven, a young, socially inept, but emotionally mature young lady, who is a country neighbour. The Hattenbury and Treleaven mamas have been friends for ages and would delight in seeing a match between their offspring. Fallen on hard times, the Treleavens may have to move to Scotland to live with relatives. A marriage between Robert and Charlotte would provide an ideal solution. However, the two feel they really do not suit. The reserved Robert believes Charlotte immature and not his intellectual equal, while Charlotte finds Robert far too stuffy. After a summer of being thrown together, Robert succumbs to her charm, compromises her, and proposes marriage. But Charlotte will have none of it, thinking he is offering from duty not love. Robert then proposes that Charlotte become his ward to gain some polish (and perhaps become suitable enough to become his bride after all). Watch the sparks fly, when the two meet again after Charlotte has completed her polishing at finishing school. About the Author: Patricia R. Olds is retired and lives near Swadlincote, England. She drew on the beauty of her former Cornish surroundings for most of her books settings. She is writing her next romance. Publishers website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/titl...
