At Your Request (Apart from the Crowd): An Apart from the Crowd Novella Publisher's Summary

After her father lost the family's fortune, Wilhelmina was cast out of the fashionable set and banished to the wallflower section. Taking a position as a social secretary to help support her family, she's mostly come to terms with her new status. But when her old friend Edgar returns to New York society for the first time since she rejected his marriage proposal, she's newly ashamed at how far she's fallen - and how hastily she dismissed him years ago. 

Her strategy is to avoid a face-to-face encounter at all costs, but he seems to have other plans. Will Edgar take advantage of their now reversed positions and make her regret her refusal, or is there still hope for a friendship between them-or something more?

At Your Request is a novella that gives an exciting introduction to Jen Turano's new Gilded Age historical romance series, Apart From the Crowd! 

Includes an extended excerpt of the first full-length novel in the series, Behind the Scenes.
