Publisher: Entangled: Amara (December 27, 2022)
Mass Market Paperback: 352 pages
Miss Julia Beaumont has exactly one night to find herself a husband…
The Weatherford Ball is the last chance Julia Beaumont has to escape the clutches of her horrid stepmother. Any potential husband will do–rich, poor, even a reasonably well-groomed walrus. But all of Julia’s matrimonial chances are completely obliterated…thanks to the actions of an infuriating and utterly rakish duke.
Gregory Carter, Duke of Ashworth, would never risk his cherished bachelorhood by flirting with marriage-starved debutantes. But one look at the luscious and refreshingly clever Julia, and he simply can’t resist a stolen kiss–scandal be damned. Then just as things start getting deliciously interesting, the lady flees…leaving only a slipper behind.
And it must have been one dandy of a kiss. Because now Julia has proposed to him. After all, the lady needs a husband, and this roguish duke will certainly do. It’s simply a matter of making him the perfect scandalous offer…

About the Author:
Lydia Drake is a reader of all things romance and a drinker of all the tea. A New Jersey resident, her favorite activities include taking the train to New York City, scouring used bookstores, spending time with her family, and wrangling her hyperactive cockapoo puppy. She loves talking romance with her fans.
This was a wonderfully escapist way to spend a rainy day. What really is better than sitting on the couch under a blanket with a cat on your lap while reading an entertaining novel?
It’s not the kind of book that is going to change your life in any way. You are not going to learn anything new but it will allow you to escape reality for a few hours and just enjoy the romance of beautiful woman, handsome men and not having to worry about the price of butter ’cause you want to make croissants and they use seriously amounts of said.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters. It was well written and the main character was real joy. It’s fun to have a bold female lead going against convention, isn’t it? The book made my rainy afternoon fly by and my cat was happy I stayed still for so long.
