A Regency Romance in the tradition of Georgette Heyer

Livia Neville is a master chess player who believes in strategy not romance. Her beautiful sister Claudia must marry well to salvage the family fortunes, but she needs a chaperone and single misses are not acceptable as chaperones in London's glittering ballrooms!

So Livia invents a dead husband and masquerades as Mrs. John Royce, a respectable widow. Little does she realize that amidst the social whirl of the London season, she will encounter runaway children, a scandalous painting--and the infuriating Nicholas Warwick who overturns her best laid plans, challenges her at chess, and makes her wish she could set aside her widow's weeds for something far more alluring...

"Plot twists, complex characters, and an exquisitely researched historical setting--who could ask for anything more?" –Lauren Willig, New York Times Bestselling Author
