A revised and updated edition of the first installment in legendary New York Times best-selling author Lisa Kleypas’ beloved historical romance series featuring the unforgettable Hathaways: a family of misfits trying to navigate their way through the hazards of the British aristocracy.
Miss Amelia Hathaway, a beautiful and strong-willed spinster, has looked after her unruly younger siblings ever since the death of her parents. Romance is the last thing on her mind. But when reckless brother inherits a title, the Hathaways are flung into the unfamiliar world of the English peerage. And Amelia, who’s always refused to lean on anyone’s shoulder, finds herself turning to a sexy, dark-haired stranger for help.
Cam Rohan, with his Romany heritage and mysterious past, is even more of an outsider than the Hathaways. He’s tough and streetwise with a romantic streak, the kind of man Amelia has never dared to dream of. No matter how Amelia tries to avoid Cam, fate keeps throwing them together. But as their irresistible attraction blazes, an enemy from her past threatens everything and everyone she holds dear. As she and Cam confront the growing peril together, Amelia finally has to take the most dangerous risk of all: loving a man, body and soul.
