Her whole world has changed… 

Until her sister’s marriage less than one year before, Catherine Evans never expected to have a London season. Now that her prospects have changed, she hopes to capture the heart of the man who can never be merely a friend.  

He is bound by duty… 

The Earl of Kerrick has tried to see his best friend’s sister-in-law as a younger sister. But just when he realizes his feelings for her go much deeper, duty forces him to court another. 

They both want what they cannot have… 

It is supposed to be a brief courtship in name only. As Kerrick works to free himself so he can finally pursue the woman he craves, outside forces conspire to ensure he marries the wrong woman.

A Top 10 Google Play Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!
A double romance: Sean & Corinna + Griffin & Rachael!

London, 1817: Sean Delaney has no shortage of female admirers, but all he wants is a divorce—for his sister, that is. Too bad her rotter of a husband, reclusive oil painter John Hamilton, won't consent unless Sean agrees to help him pull off a major deception. With his sister's happiness on the line, Sean has no choice. But he won't be able to do it alone...

Though Lady Corinna Chase is more interested in pursuing her art than finding a husband, she can't help but take notice of the handsome Irishman who's moved in next door. When it soon becomes evident that her new neighbor isn't who he says he is, rather than expose him, she finds herself drawn into the hoax. As collaboration grows into admiration, and temptation breeds desire, Corinna faces a difficult choice: Will she abandon her artistic ambitions, or give up the man she's come to love?

Meanwhile, Corinna's brother Griffin is helping their alluring cousin Rachael find her father. Thank goodness they're cousins, because Rachael has made it clear she won't ever marry one. Except...they discover she isn't actually his cousin. Good God, he's really in trouble now...
