Publisher Description


Lady Theodora Montgomery departed Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality to attend her first London Season—her three dearest friends by her side. With her sharp wit and skill on the archery field, Theo is far more interested in winning a large purse prize than securing a husband. But when she is unmasked on the tourney grounds, her face exposed to all, she fears her identity and days spent gallivanting around London will cause not only her undoing, but the downfall of her friends as well. 


Mr. Alistair Price, heir to the elderly Viscount Melton, arrived in London with his eight younger siblings in tow. He is charged with keeping his family name above reproach until the Season starts and his sister, Miss Adeline Price, is presented to society—though that proves far more difficult than Alistair ever expected when he discovers his rebellious sister climbing down the side of their townhouse and scurrying off to Whitechapel for an archery tournament. His focus remains on saving his family from the certain ruin and disgrace Adeline’s actions invited—until Alistair catches sight of another female archer, her arrow connecting with far more than the center of her target.

And honor above all…

With Theodora’s future—and that of her friends—in jeopardy, will she agree to a marriage devoid of affection, or risk everything for the man who won her heart?

His task, present his sister Adeline to society - a Herculean task if any one asked - what he never expected was his heart would be stolen.

The reader definitely will be entertained with Alistair and Theo's witty banter, and the story moves along at a good pace. Theo's feelings of always being on the outside of the group doesn't interfere with keeping her loyalties to the Archer's Creed and she's willing to sacrifice her future for them. Alistair steps up and saves the day, and redeems himself after all his high handed domineering ways running around shouting orders to his sister and Theo. This is the first book to what will be a great series.
Received an ARC from the author for my honest opinion, all views are my own and not influenced in any way.
