Description

Violet Hawthorne is beyond mortified when her brother Ezra turns their deceased parents' New England country inn into a brothel to accommodate the nearby lumberjacks--but when Violet's own reputation is compromised, the inn becomes the least of her worries.

In an effort to salvage her good name, Violet is forced into an engagement with a taciturn acquaintance--Vance Everstone.

As she prepares for a society wedding, Violet learns that her brother had staked her hand in marriage in a heated poker game with the unsavory Rowen Steele, and Ezra had lost. Now Rowen is determined to cash in on his IOU.

With danger stalking her and a new fiancé who hides both his emotion and his past, Violet must decide who to trust--and who to leave behind.

Review quote

"A redeemed rogue and a wronged maiden--bound together in a passionate but seemingly ill-fated relationship. If you love romance in the style of Jane Austen, you'll love The Cautious Maiden! Dawn Crandall draws the reader in with complex characters and hints of danger, adding layers of emotion in a skillful blend that makes this a book you won't soon forget!"
