Miss Penelope's Letters by Miss Mae opens the anthology. The only opening scene is unnecessarily italicized. Otherwise, it is an excellent story. Miss Penelope, a London doctor's daughter, is filling in for Lord Wellington's ill housekeeper and begins receiving unsigned letters. The writer demands that Penelope meet him in one of London's most ill-reputed sections of town. When she dares to keep the assignation, she encounters trouble and a mystery man in a black mask. She must decide if the man behind the mask is truly a man of honor as he claims. It doesn't help that his stolen kiss leaves her breathless and his presence makes her heart pound.
