The Romance

M. C. Beaton,

The Romance

In this Regency romance by the New York Times–bestselling author of the Agatha Raisin series, a maiden faces a dandy dilemma.

After their father gambled Mannerling, their ancestral home, and lost everything, the Beverley sisters have each tried to get it back by marrying one of the successive owners. Four have tried and failed—marrying for love instead. Belinda Beverley’s turn has come. Practical and duty-bound, Belinda could certainly wed Lord St. Clair, the current holder of the manse.

Luke St. Clair is a silly fop, hardly the type of man she desires for a husband. But this possibly being her family’s last chance, Belinda believes she could make the man love her—even at the expense of her own happiness. However, dashing Lord Gyre is not about to let such a beauty make such a terrible mistake…
