Miss Hillary Schools a Scoundrel

Samantha Grace. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $6.99 mass market (448p) ISBN 978-1-4022-5831-2

With heart and humor, Grace delivers a rich and winning Regency debut. After a failed engagement to a cheating cad, Lana Hillary vows to marry a man who will love her, cherish her, and not break her heart. Unfortunately, noble gentlemen bore her to bits and her attraction to bad boys is hard to deny. Lord Andrew Forest is a confirmed bachelor, accomplished rake, and not at all appropriate marriage material, but there’s a definite spark between him and Lana. Despite warnings from both sides, the lovebirds decide the temptation and attraction are too great to ignore. Clever and charming, this tale brings in everything Regency fans love—meddling mothers, oppressive high society, subtle wit, steamy interludes, and a bit of intrigue—without ever feeling formulaic. Agent: The Knight Agency. (Feb.)
