Eliza Pierce has known her share of disappointing men. Disinherited by her cruel father and disenchanted by her callous husband, she abandoned hope of her own happy ending. Now a widow in need of funds, Eliza has partnered with her sisters to create Elegant Occasions, a consulting agency that helps young misses navigate the marriage mart and avoid adversity such as hers. When Nathaniel Stanton, Earl of Foxstead, seeks their services for his ward, Eliza suspects that there is more to the situation than he is revealing. The pair will have to learn to trust one another in order for their desire to overcome their dissonance. In her second engaging installment of the “Designing Debutantes” series, Jeffries (A Duke for Diana) delivers more of the delightful and daring Harper sisters. This heartwarming historical romance teems with witty banter and wanton desire. The immersive detail and enchanting cast of characters create a compelling romp that will leave readers ready for more.
VERDICT This book will appeal to readers seeking a playful and provocative Regency romance with an independent, intelligent heroine. Recommended for fans of Sophie Irwin, Eloisa James, and Virginia Heath.
