A Top 10 iBooks Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!


London, 1666


Amethyst Goldsmith makes dazzling jewelry, but her future isn’t nearly as bright as the pieces she creates. Though custom dictates she wed her father’s apprentice, her heart rebels against the match. In mere days Amy will be condemned to a stifling, loveless marriage, and she sees no way out—until the devastating fire of 1666 sweeps through London, and tragedy lands her in the arms of a dashing nobleman who knows a diamond in the rough when he sees it…


Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, has his future all figured out. He’s restoring his crumbling castle and estate to its former glory, and the key to its completion is his rich bride-to-be. But the Great Fire lays waste to his plans, saddling him with trouble—in the form of a lowly shopkeeper’s daughter with whom he’s most inconveniently falling in love...

Great novel

I read this book in one night. It's fun to ready, steamy and suspenseful!

Nice story

The romance was really sweet and the storyline interesting. But it was full of anachronisms... and Colin's pranks were terrible. Really irritating. It was an entertaining read though.
