A BELOVED CLASSIC FROM THE QUEEN OF THE REGENCY ROMANCE

A fiery debutante. An ill-tempered bachelor. A
romance for the ages.

Arabella, the daughter of an impoverished country parson, dreams of a new life in London. But her beauty and charm will only get her so far – and when Arabella embarks on her first London season armed with nothing but a benevolent godmother and her own notoriously short temper, she quickly runs afoul of Robert Beaumaris.

He’s the most eligible bachelor of the day, with a personality as strong and combative as hers – and Arabella cannot abide him thinking of her as just another pretty girl after his wealth. So she allows herself to be provoked into a game of deception – one that could have unexpected consequences…

Arabella is a rich, dashing romance from Georgette Heyer, the legendary creator of the beloved Regency romance genre.

. . . rapturously romantic’ KATIE FFORDE
