A lighthearted Regency friends-to-lovers tale full of family, the delights of the London season, and an unbelievable number of biscuits.
James, Viscount Matheson, would do anything to help his disgraced relatives through a scandal—even take a proper bride. But his fiancée of convenience, Louisa Oliver, won't set a wedding date, and the beau monde keeps gossiping. James enlists the help of Louisa's beloved stepsister, Julia Herington, to push his suit forward.
If James is the head of his family, Julia is the heart of hers. She tackles problems large and small with enthusiasm, and she's quite sure she can help the charming viscount transform his troubled betrothal into a love match. Through renovations at a tumbledown country home, innumerable biscuits, and a family Christmas, James and Julia's alliance soon turns into friendship. And maybe more…
As the London season draws near, both are falling for someone they're forbidden to pursue. With reputations at stake, will James and Julia protect those they love…or tempt a scandal that just might end in happily-ever-after?
