THE PROXY: A Short Novel in The Captivated Bundle

In the middle ages, marriage by proxy was common, but not falling in love with the substitute.

Caroline has found fault with all of her suitors. She thinks she has escaped her duties, until a marriage by proxy arrives. Her future husband is too weak and old to travel. Even the nunnery sounds more appealing than marriage to the old baron.

Nicholas, the proxy, marries Caroline as a stand-in for her new husband. Nicholas, the baron’s servant, must help her to fall in love with the Baron’s character.

When Caroline falls for the proxy instead, what will she do about the Baron? Especially, when she becomes pregnant with Nicholas’ child?


Andrea has always enjoyed creating characters and stories. But it wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels. She writes fantasy, paranormal, contemporary, and historical romance. Under the pen name, A.R. Cooper, she writes YA Fantasy. Her debut YA series is Shadow Bloodlines.

What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids (two boys and a girl).

Andrea writes fantasy, paranormal, historical, and romantic suspense.

She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.
