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.
