A lively tale of reckless spending, fraudulent correspondence, and the humorous twists and turns of falling for the right rogue…
Jack, Marquess of Ettington, is at his wits’ end dealing with his twin sister’s distress. Under her name, he’s summoned Constance Grange, his vexing former ward, to London to act as his sister’s companion for the season. Although Pixie’s debt-ridden state comes as a complete surprise, what disturbs him more is his sister’s plan to find her a wealthy husband to pay off her overwhelming debts. And—despite his availability, wealth and title—he’s shocked to be overlooked for the position of Pixie’s husband.
With a nickname like Pixie, Constance Grange should be used to disasters, but debt collectors pounding on the Marquess of Ettington’s door demanding payment is beyond mortifying. Given the precarious state of her finances and the previously unknown loss of her family estate, her choices are either incarceration in debtors’ prison or turning fortune hunter to secure a wealthy husband. Yet the man who comes to her rescue more times than she cares to think about is unavailable, betrothed, and her former guardian Jack—the cold-hearted marquess.
A five star review from Goodreads:
“Very realistic characters & relationships, had me laughing. That many things are not as they seem is true in life and is delightfully captured in this story. The contrasts within Constance and Virginia, and between them are revealed as the story evolves. The same is true of Jack and Bernard. Each of the four has a significant challenge to handle, and eventually does as surprises unfold and communication between them occurs overtly, subtly, and realistically. The supporting characters are believeable and surprising. The realism is a delight.”Lizette – Goodreads
