Product Description

In her print debut, award-winning author Susanna Craig launches a new Regency historical romance series, based around the daring ladies’ magazine-and the witty, clever, often rebellious heroines behind it, including the fiery Irish advice columnist. When a nobleman blames her advice for provoking his fiancé for publicly breaking of their engagement, he proposes that she marry him instead. This modern twist on the genre will appeal to fans of Sabrina Jeffries, Sarah MacLean, and Julia Quinn and those who love fast-paced, innovative historical romance featuring strong women!

Serving as the advice columnist, ‘Miss Busy B.’, for an often-subversive ladies’ magazine is the perfect outlet for Daphne Burke’s outspoken nature. But when she advises a young lady of the ton, to break off her engagement to a notorious rake, the consequences take Daphne beyond the page and into her real life.

Miles, Viscount Deveraux, sometimes known as “that devil Deveraux” needs a respectable bride by the end of the Season, and he’s bet a fortune that he can get one. Now, his fiancée has not only changed her mind—but done it publicly, in a letter to London’s most infamous magazine. With the stakes high and time short, it seems reasonable to him that the columnist responsible should come to his rescue and marry him instead.

Fortunately for Miles, Daphne is eager to escape the pressures of the London marriage mart. She agrees to a courtship. But at the end of two weeks, she intends to turn him down in a big, splashy, scandal that will ruin her reputation and set her free. There’s just one shocking wrinkle: Who knew being ruined by a rake could be so much fun?
