The Secret Life of Spinsters
The Desiring the Dexingtons Series, Book 2
By Renee Dahlia
An unexpected alliance between spinsters…
Confirmed spinster ELSPETH DEXINGTON works in the Dexington family linen manufacturing business dealing with logistics. She believes that machinery will make clothing cheaper for the people, and therefore everyone can afford new clothes, not hand-me-downs and turned cuffs. But when her father declares they will stop manufacturing linen and shift to cotton, she has a new fight on her hands. Producing affordable clothing shouldn’t come at such a great human cost. Help comes in an unexpected form.
FLORENCIA WAULKER is the daughter of one of the Luddite organisers. She does all her blind father’s correspondence, but when he orders an attack on the Dexington factory, she realises his belief in the need to rid factories of machines have gone too far. She sneaks out to warn the daughter of the factory owner, only to find herself caught up in a conspiracy.
Can two spinsters work together to prevent a disaster, or two? Or is falling in love the real problem?
A Sapphic Regency romance novella.
