"A five-star job of sheerly delightful romance writing."- Chicago Sunday Tribune
Can the wrong bride become the perfect wife?
Adam Deveril, the new Viscount Lynton, is madly in love with the beautiful Julia Oversley. But he has returned from the Peninsular War to find his family on the brink of ruin and his ancestral home mortgaged to the hilt. He has little choice when he is introduced to Mr. Jonathan Chawleigh, a City man of apparently unlimited wealth and no social ambitions for himself-but with his eyes firmly fixed on a suitable match for his only daughter, the quiet and decidedly plain Jenny Chawleigh.Celebrate the 80th birthday of Regency Romance with great books from Sourcebooks Casablanca!
