The Daughters of Allamont Hall6 books in series
A traditional regency romance, drawing room rather than bedroom.
Amy is a shy, timid soul, browbeaten by her domineering father until she's terrified to do or say anything without his approval. When he dies suddenly, his will leaves large dowries for his six daughters, but only if they marry in the proper order, the eldest first. Amy must now find herself a husband, and soon, so her younger sisters can marry in their turn. There are several possible suitors, but will any of them come up to scratch? And how will Amy choose without her father to guide her?
Mr. Ambleside has been waiting for Amy for years, his suit rejected by her father. Now he has his opportunity, and he's determined to win her. But first he has to see off his rivals, and if he manages that, he has to overcome her reluctance to defy her father's wishes. But he's a very tenacious man...
