In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell’s glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing … but which Whitridge twin is the right groom?

The penniless orphan of a disreputable earl, Lady Charlene Blanchard thrives on the adventure of picking the pockets of unsavory gentlemen to survive. But due to her extraordinary beauty and prized bloodlines, she is hand-chosen as a potential bride for the Duke of Baynton, who is on the hunt for a suitable wife to provide heirs. All Char has to do is act the part she was born to play and charm a duke she’s never laid eyes on into proposing. Except the duke turns out to be the tall, dark, and sexy stranger who just caught her red-handed as a thief!

Or is he?

Jack Whitridge is the duke’s twin who had “gone missing” over ten years ago. Now back in England, he knows that the supposed lady who has his brother’s love is hardly duchess material—except he needs her to save his adopted country from war. He is willing to bargain with her heart, until he finds himself falling for Char.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Maxwell tantalizes with an unconventional plot simmering with sexual tension and suspense. The interesting historical details, centering on the days before the War of 1812, add depth…Smart, fun, sexy.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “Maxwell’s signature skill at depicting complicated family relationships is one of the novel’s strongest features. Even secondary characters display unusual depth under Maxwell’s deft hand. Both lively and thought provoking, this book is well worth reading.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Well written, with sharp historical accuracy and a slightly feminist bent…Readers are transported back to the time of grand balls and Gretna Green, and the romance is tinged with the faintest whiff of wartime gunpowder. Smart dialogue, a strong plot, and simmering politics make for a delicious read.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Jealousy, old resentments, and misunderstandings drive the plot of this charming, historically grounded Regency that brings an independent, spirited couple together.”

    Library Journal

  • “Narrator Mary Jane Wells brings warmth and humor to this second volume of Maxwell’s trilogy, creating genuine emotional connections with the characters…A myriad of believable accents from a variety of walks of life (the ton, street urchins, Americans) helps to ground this story and maintain its charm.”
