Baker & Taylor
Miles Vorkosigan's attempts to woe a beautiful widow are stymied by her reluctance to marry again, so he embarks on a brilliant campaign to win her heart.

Blackwell North Amer
Lord Miles Vorkosigan, youngest Imperial Auditor to be appointed by the Emperor since the Time of Isolation, has a problem all his new power can't solve: unrequited love for the beautiful Vor widow Ekaterin Vorsoisson. Ekaterin is violently allergic to marriage as a result of her first exposure. But as Miles learned from his late career in galactic covert ops, if a frontal assault won't do, go to subterfuge. He has a cunning plan.
Lord Mark Vorkosigan has a problem: his love for the sunny Kareen, daughter of Commodore Koudelka, has just become unrequited again. But if all his new money can't solve their dilemma, perhaps a judicious blending of science and entrepreneurial scheming might. He has a cunning plan.
Lord Ivan Vorpatril has a problem: unrequited love in general. True, with the men on Barrayar outnumbering the women five to four, his odds aren't good. But Ivan had never thought the odds applied to him. He too has a cunning plan.

Miles' civil campaign involves a proposal. As ever, Bujold gives us a delightful comedy of errors all based on matrimonial variations. Her customs and worlds are fully satisfying.

A Civil Campaign is one of my favourite novels. It is near the end of the Vorkosigan books, but you do not need to read the series in order. This book is light on the sci fi, but heavy on the screwball comedy.
