Another enthralling romance featuring New York Times bestselling author Lauren Royal's "outrageously funny, loyal, compassionate, and unconventional" Chase family
The last of three sisters to marry, Lady Rose Ashcroft is determined to land a wealthy, titled husband-a marquess, perhaps, or even a duke. Having had her heart broken in the past, she's decided the key to enticing a man lies in hiding her intelligence and academic interests while flaunting her more feminine qualities. Matchmaking mother in tow and strategy firmly in place, Rose heads off to Charles II's court to find love...
And runs smack dab into Christopher "Kit" Martyn, the one man who could ruin all her plans. Kit is a dashing, successful commoner with his sights set on landing the post of official Royal Architect-and he's the only man Rose feels she can honestly talk to about anything. Kit knows the true Rose, and he wants her, but she thinks of him as a family friend. Can he devise a scheme to convince her that a title is unimportant compared to the passion they share?
