A Daring Arrangement

Avon. (Four Hundred, Bk. 1). Nov. 2017. 384p. ISBN 9780062678898. pap. $7.99; ebk. ISBN 9780062678904. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Lady Honora Parker is furious when her noble father scotches her plans to marry a struggling artist and sends her to her aunt and uncle in America to find a worthy husband. Undeterred, she hatches a foolproof plan to ensure that she is sent back to England—and into the arms of her beloved Robert. All she has to do is become engaged (temporarily, of course) to the most totally unsuitable, obnoxious Yank she can find. Brash financier Julius Hatcher is the perfect choice, though he has a long-standing hidden agenda of his own. While Nora's proposition is a good one, the results are not at all what either intended.
VERDICT A young lady's outrageous plan to marry the man of her dreams backfires most effectively in this steamy romance that takes excellent advantage of a seldom-used New York Gilded Age setting. Shupe (Mogul) lives in South Orange, NJ.
