Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
In Ashlyn Macnamara's stunning romance debut--perfect for fans of Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Sabrina Jeffries--two childhood friends in Regency England discover love with the most unlikely of partners: each other.
After watching her beloved sister, Sophia, pine over the ton's golden boy for years, Miss Julia St. Claire has foresworn love and put herself firmly on the shelf. Unfortunately, her social-climbing mother and debt-ridden father have other ideas, and jump at the chance to marry Julia off to the newly named Earl of Clivesden . . . the man of Sophia's dreams.
Since resigning his cavalry commission, Benedict Revelstoke has spent his time in London avoiding the marriage mart. But when he discovers that the Earl of Clivesden has his sights set on Julia, Benedict tries to protect his childhood best friend from the man's advances--only to discover that more than friendship is driving his desire to defend her. He surprises them both with the force of his feelings, but when Julia refuses him, and her father announces her betrothal, Benedict fears he's lost her forever--until Julia approaches him with a shocking scheme that will ruin her for all respectable society and lead them into an exquisite world of forbidden pleasures.
Includes a preview of Ashlyn Macnamara's next novel, "A Most Devilish Rogue

Review by Library Journal (2013-02-15)

Convinced by her parents' loveless match and her sister Sophia's unrequited infatuation that falling in love only brings pain, Julia St. Claire plans never to marry at all-or, if she must, to we'd someone she merely likes. But her social-climbing mother's selfish machinations and her father's gambling losses result in disaster for both sisters. When she finds herself betrothed to the cad Sophia pines for, Julia runs to Benedict Revelstoke, her longtime best friend, with a proposition he can't refuse.

Verdict: Gossip, scandal, and breezy banter enliven this unusual dual love story that features some beautifully rendered secondary characters, illuminates realistic dilemmas, and highlights the overwhelming importance of one's social standing (a classic theme in traditional Regency romances). Macnamara's debut novel was a finalist for a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award for unpublished manuscript.
