A horse race in trousers on Rotten Row. Visiting a gaming hall in a dress that would make her mother faint. Sneaking an invitation to a masquerade ball attended by only the wickedest, most debauched members of society…

None of these things are scaring off bookish but strong-willed Amelia Bishop’s stuffy, egotistical fiancé.

The only thing left is to entice childhood friend Nicholas Wakefield into a truly engagement-ending scandal. The Wakefields are the height of propriety, and Nicholas’s parents have made it clear a wife from the neighboring Bishop family would be unacceptable…

But Nicholas would give up his family and his fortune if Amelia would ever see him as more than just a childhood friend. He’ll go along with her scheme, even if it means ruining them both, because he’s got a plan that will change her mind about him being merely the boy next door.


Lord Nicholas Wakefield has been summoned home by his mother from his grand tour.  He has been having a marvellous time with a friend he made there.  He can't wait to tell his best childhood friend all about his adventures , and let her know how much he missed her. 
Miss Amelia Bishop is the youngest daughter of a very rich man.  Unfortunately the money hasn't stopped them from being shunned by society.  The oldest daughter has a spinal problem so the "ton" class her as defective.  The sisters are the very best of friends and very protective of each other.  Amelia has recently got engaged to be married but is having second thoughts. 
This is quite an historical romp.  Our sisters are so loving, but devious.  Our hero tries very hard to be a responsible member of his family, but his very naughty friends keep throwing him in at the deep end.  I giggled my way through this.  It's great fun.  I think I can see who is going to be the hero in Julia's story and I can't wait to read it.

When she isn’t wrangling characters or making a nuisance of herself on twitter, she is mediocre dog wrangler, chasing her shepherd-mix coyote and great dane around the lake.
