During the Regency there was an important decision between a commoner and a person who is common born.

Everyone who was not a peer, peeress, or royal was a commoner. That includes the sons and daughters of peers. Even that gentleman with a courtesy title is a commoner. This distinction is important. Peers and peeresses had several privileges. They could not be thrown into debtor’s prison. If brought up on allegations of a crime or in a civil suit (even divorce) the trial had to take place in the House of Lords.

A person that was common born was not part of the gentry. In other words, the person was of a lower social class. Another way of putting it is that the person is not gently born.

Dashing as they may be, Ella Quinn’s eligible bachelors have much to learn about life and love. Fortunately, just the right ladies are willing to instruct them . . .
Lady Dorcus Calthorp, daughter of the Marquis of Huntington, loved and lost during her first Season, leaving her suspicious of gentlemen. Now Dorie finds herself with no marital prospects in sight—until Alexander, the newly elevated Marquis of Exeter, arrives in town. Handsome, charming, and an interesting conversationalist, he at first seems to be her perfect match. Then Dorie discovers he may not be seeking a wife so much as a land steward…

Lady Dorie meets all the requirements—until she makes a surprising proposal. Instead of marrying Alexander, she will tutor him in his duties, freeing him to find his heart’s match. Yet the more Dorie teaches him, the more he longs to change their course of study—to love. And with the end of the Season nearing, he doesn’t have much time…
