♥ A matchmaking mama
♥ A Royal Society ball
♥ Steamy romance!

Another irresistible romance featuring New York Times bestselling author Lauren Royal's "outrageously funny, loyal, compassionate, and unconventional" Chase family!

The Ashcroft family motto is "Question Convention," and eldest sister Lady Violet agrees with the sentiment completely. For one thing, she's not planning to marry. Plain Violet is smart enough to realize any suitors would be after her large inheritance, or else interested in her beautiful younger sisters—and she'd much rather spend her time reading her beloved books than risking her tender heart...

Ford Chase, the Viscount Lakefield, has never spent much time around children...until he finds his young niece dropped in his lap. Although five-year-old Jewel is adorable, she's also an annoying, unwelcome distraction from his scientific pursuits. Lucky for Ford, the matchmaking matriarch next door comes to his rescue—by sending her uncommonly intelligent daughter Violet to help...

PLEASE NOTE: This book was formerly titled "Violet."


A complete, standalone story—no cliffhangers!

About the Author

About The Author
LAUREN ROYAL is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of humorous historical romance. Her “truly enchanting” novels have won many awards including Booklist's “Top 10 Romance of the Year,” and they’ve earned raves from reviewers including Publishers Weekly, who calls her “an impressive talent.”

All of Lauren’s books are complete, stand-alone stories, and yet they are also all connected—because they all feature her beloved “outrageously funny, loyal, compassionate, and unconventional” Chase family!

Lauren writes steamy historical romance on her own and sweet/clean historical romance with her daughter, Devon Royal. She lives in Southern California with her family, two constantly shedding cats, and a stupendous collection of fuzzy socks. When she's not busy writing, she enjoys singing along (off-key) to Hamilton, dancing (badly), and (wasting time) watching HGTV.
