Our Hero and Heroine
Katherine Stanton, Countess of Shelton
It takes a girl with grit to survive a hostile environment. Poor Katherine -- she is not up to the challenge. She is unsophisticated, naive, green as grass. Instead of making her curtsey at Almack's, she is buried in the country with a black-hearted knight and a dragon masquerading as a mother-in-law.
So Katherine does the impossible. She slays the dragon and turns the black knight into one of the shining armor persuasion.
Reportedly only a friend, Sir Hurst Dunsmore (can you feel the breeze behind him? It's the debutantes sighing.) hovers protectively. As she shows endless times, Katherine has the grace to alter unfavorable first impressions when circumstances demand.
Alexander Stanton, Earl of Shelton
One word explains this classically handsome man: stubborn. Once he gets an idea into his head, it takes an epiphany to change it. Beyond that, he is generous, giving freely to charity. He also has the tolerance of a dedicated saint when faced with the vagaries of the elderly. A scientist and poet at heart, Shelton would make a great reporter on the mysteries and wonders of the world for CNN, but he has to settle for being both hero and villain to his wife.
