Bold. Beautiful. Beguiling.

It’s been over a year since Emma Clark’s no-good husband left on an expedition. The Countess of Dearborn has played the abandoned wife, but people are beginning to presume the earl is dead, which doesn't suit Emma at all. Emma likes being head of household in Albert’s absence and does her best to keep his family believing he is alive and well. She’s thirty years old and finally having some fun. If the earl is in fact dead, his family is waiting in the wings to swoop in and throw Emma out, leaving her destitute.

Then along comes Luka Olivien, the Weslorian Earl of Marlaine. He’s traveled all the way from Egypt, duty bound to return to the countess her deceased husband’s precious pocket watch—only to discover she doesn’t know he’s dead… Or does she? It’s hard to tell. Luka catches glimpses of the desperate vulnerability beneath the party girl exterior and can’t help being drawn into the beguiling countess’s ruse.

A Royal Match

Lady Lila Aleksander is the pre-eminent matchmaker in all of Europe. The skill comes to her naturally, born out of necessity after her star turn one Season as the most sought-after debutante in all of London London. But when her parents’ scandal made her suddenly the most un-marriable woman in all of England, Lila decided she would have to take matters matters into her own hands. She devised and implemented her own match, and for the last eighteen years she’s been happily married to a Danish prince.

Other notable figures wanted what Lila managed to arrange for herself, and over the years she’s become the matchmaker to Europe’s elite. But she’s more interested in matchmaking people who, for whatever reason, are denied the chance to marry the one they want and deserve. Society is cruel to people who don’t fit a mold. Lila’s style of matchmaking requires finesse: it works best when the parties don’t know they are being matched.
