A Match Made in Heather by Anna Harrington is the story of Garrick and Arabel.
Garrick once worked for Arabel's family about 10 years ago. Garrick and Arabel fell in love and had planned to runaway together and marry. But on the night they were to elope, Arabel came to him to say that her brother had gotten into series trouble and she could not leave yet. Arabel asked that he wait with her as her family fixed this latest problem the brother had caused. But Garrick has excepted a new job that starts in three days and doesn't understand her choosing her family over him. They argue and she leaves but not before he is attacked and warned to stay away from her. Now 10 years later they meet again but this time Garrick isn't the poor stable boy and Arabel has just agreed to marry another.
