Description

"Historical romance devotees will enjoy Michels's adoring use of some of the classic tropes of the genre—the spare heir, the wrong brother as hero, the heroine in men's clothing—but what makes the book so enjoyable is the way Michels makes the familiar fresh."—SARAH MACLEAN, The Washington Post for The Infamous Heir

The Spare Heirs Society Cordially Invites You to Meet Ash Claughbane: The Imposter
Lady Evangeline Green is living a lie. To please her family, she masquerades as the perfect debutante...until she meets the wickedly charming Lord Crosby. With him, there are no rules. She's finally free to do as she desires—but freedom comes with a price, and Lord Crosby is not what he seems...

Ash is not Lord Crosby. He's a con artist, a noble Spare Heir living off his silver tongue. When the Greens ruined his family, he swore he'd make them pay, and he never doubted his devotion to revenge...until he met Evangeline. Now, caught in a web of lies, torn between duty and desire, what's a con to do but deceive all of London and steal the one lady who dared match wits with the devil himself?

Praise for Elizabeth Michels:
"Michels's latest is the complete package: a captivating romance with gripping suspense wrapped up in a novel to be savored."—Publishers Weekly STARRED for The Infamous Heir
"Rich with wit and charm."—Publishers Weekly on How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less
"Michels' fresh and funny debut will delight readers with its endearing characters and infectious mix of sweet yet sexy romance and realistic yet wry wit."—Booklist Online STARRED on Must Love Dukes

      • bioText: Elizabeth Michels grew up on a Christmas tree farm in rural South Carolina. After tip-toeing her way through school with her focus on ballet steps and her nose in a book, she met a boy and followed him a thousand miles away from home to Kansas City, Missouri, before settling down in North Carolina. She attended Park University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Interior Design. Elizabeth is a lover of happily-ever-afters; she invites you to read her stories, get lost, and enjoy.

        Starred review from July 18, 2016
        Michels’s delicious second Spare Heirs Regency (after The Infamous Heir) unites a proper lady and a swindling gentleman in an unlikely romance. Lady Evangeline Green is determined to be the perfect debutante and land a husband to escape her demanding mother’s tutelage. What she doesn’t expect is a second encounter with Ash Claughbane, who kissed her and left her waiting a year before and who’s now calling himself Lord Crosby. Ash set out to destroy Evie’s father, Lord Rightworth, because Rightworth engineered the financial ruin of Ash’s family, but he didn’t count on meeting Evie again. He becomes completely entranced by her—even after learning that she’s Rightworth’s daughter. When their mutual feelings develop, Evie’s hopeful that she’ll be able to convince Ash to remain in London. Ash and Evie will leave readers mesmerized and the evolution of their relationship is real and believable. Michels expertly delivers a heart-wrenching romance that will leave the reader eagerly anticipating future installments. Agent: Michelle Grajkowski, 3 Seas Literary.

        A con artist falls for the well-behaved daughter of the man he's trying to swindle, but who is the real imposter?Ashley Claughbane is a spare heir. As the youngest son in a wealthy family, he must make his way in the world on his own, without an inheritance. There wasn't much left for him to inherit anyway, as his father was left destitute by the time of his death. Determined to punish Lord Rightsworth, the man responsible for his family's misfortune, Ashley trains himself to be a con artist, starting small by selling love potions and youth tonics. Now he's ready for the swindle he's been waiting for. Under the fake name of Lord Crosby, he heads to London and, with the help of a mysterious secret organization called the Spare Heirs Society, sets up a phony company selling portable steam. His first potential client is none other than Lord Rightsworth, but due to a previous encounter, Lord Rightsworth's daughter, Evangeline Green, already knows Lord Crosby under a different name and figures out quickly that he's a fraud. Trained mercilessly by her mother to be a proper debutante, Evangeline finds herself unable to resist this Lord Crosby, even with her family's fortune and reputation at stake. As much as she tries to strictly adhere to the rules of proper society, Evangeline is a rebel at heart. Playing with the themes of deception and authenticity, this romance delightfully emulates a Jane Austen-ish comedy of manners. There is an easy chemistry between Ashley and Evangeline, with a great mixture of wit, gamesmanship, sexual innuendo, and warmth. It's a genuine pleasure to watch their masks fall away as they become friends and lovers. The lively plot and vivid characters are as well-drawn as the sex, offering satisfaction on many levels.
