Waterstones Says

Bright, breezy and perfect for all fans of Bridgerton, Irwin's entrancing period novel details a young ingénue's attempts to land a moneyed husband - and save her family from the bailiffs.

The season is about to begin - and there's not a minute to lose.

Kitty Talbot needs a fortune. Or rather, she needs a husband who has a fortune. This is 1818 after all, and only men have the privilege of seeking their own riches.

With only twelve weeks until the bailiffs call, launching herself into London society is the only avenue open to her, and Kitty must use every ounce of cunning and ingenuity she possesses to climb the ranks.

The only one to see through her plans is the worldly Lord Radcliffe and he is determined to thwart her at any cost, especially when it comes to his own brother falling for her charms.

Can Kitty secure a fortune and save her sisters from poverty? There is not a day to lose and no one - not even a lord - will stand in her way...
