Description

"Be warned, this book sizzles...If you want a read that will keep you up past bedtime having to know what will happen next, then this is the book for you."—Long and Short Reviews

From USA Today bestselling author Jade Lee comes a new Regency romance set in a daring, high energy world where deep longings, secret scandals and the competition for social stature are all revealed against the backdrop of the glittering wedding balls and breakfasts of the Season.

All Grant Benton, Earl of Crowle, can think of is restoring his family's fortune so he can go back to being a gentleman of leisure. But when he meets beautiful, purposeful Lady Irene Knopp, he begins to question whether there might not be a better way to live life after all...

Lady Irene will never give up her fulfilling work dressing the most beautiful brides in England. She'd rather risk losing love forever than sacrifice her own life's purpose. Yet she has never met a more magnetic, attractive man than Grant. Trapped between the fleeting chance at love and passion for her work, is it possible she can have it all?

In her new series, four women find love as they dress the most beautiful brides in England. Lee lives in Champaign, Illinois.

        June 17, 2013
        In this fun and passion-filled Regency, Grant Benton, future Earl of Crowle, accidentally burns down his family’s barn. His already-impoverished family must sell their land, and Grant, although despondent, accepts his bleak future. When he gets the chance to earn back his land by running a mill, Grant takes charge of the business with ruthless efficiency but keeps his identity secret. Then he meets Irene Knopp, a beautiful garment purchaser, and his long-quiet libido roars back to life. As the two begin a passionate affair, Irene offers Grant a different perspective on life, suggesting that work can be fulfilling and rewarding—a notion Grant finds difficult to accept. When they discover that Irene’s life may be in danger, Grant and Irene realize just how deep their feelings have become. Readers will savor the numerous red-hot love scenes as Grant finds his way to maturity and love. Agent: Pamela Harty, Knight Agency.
