Best Romances With Spinsters, Wallflowers, Or Old Maids

She might be on the shelf, but love doesn't pass her by in the end. These are romances where the heroine is a spinster, is on the shelf, or is considered an old maid by society (even if it's by choice). Also included are heroines who have limited marital prospects because they are wallflowers.

It's a young woman who comes back to England with her brother and sister. She took them on a tour of the continent to protect them from cousin who killed the father and almost the brother. He killed the yonger sisters fiancee before they could marry to protect her inheritance.
A military officer makes a bet with his friends he would ask the next lady tru the door to marry him. Her sister was first so he was with his jr. Officer to speakto them. He goes to the older sister because the younger seemed scared pf him his jr.O ends up falling in love with the younger. Sis. Sr.Officerbfalls for older sister. He offers his assistane protecting her siblings a m d herwhile helping to convict cousin of fathers death also to stop his slave smuggling. I thought it had Guardian or protector in the title but for a week now I cant find it. I hope someone can help
Me find rirlw or author so I can buy it it is frustrating if more of the story will help, Oh the brother is titled and they have with oaks or pines as the main product. Any help is appreciated.

Booklovinglady I wouldn't exactly call Sophy (The Grand Sophy, #92) a 'Spinster, Wallflower or Old Maid'. Far from it, actually :-)
