The Suitor - Mary Balogh This is a sweet, but slight, short story, published as an ebook for US$1.99. There is a scene in the sneak peak of [b:The Arrangement|15797358|The Arrangement (The Survivors' Club #2)|Mary Balogh|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1364250976s/15797358.jpg|19754340], the upcoming book two of Mary Balogh's new Survivor's Club series, where Vincent Hunt, Viscount Darleigh, is introduced to the young woman who his mother and sisters have chosen to be his bride. He is not interested in getting married, but because he has been blinded in the Peninsular Wars, his family decides that they know best. Darleigh has nothing against the girl, who along with her family has come to visit his country home, so he tries to make her dislike him before fleeing ignominiously with his valet. The Arrangement tells the story of what happens next.

This story, however, focuses on the blameless young lady, Phillipa Dean, who is no more desirous of marrying Darleigh than he is. She has someone else in mind. Someone who does not meet with her parents' approval. As I said, her story is sweet, but there's not much there there.
