Can a Regency lady win back the man she rejected? When Lady Sara Rowdon's snobbish parents forbade her to marry the impoverished man she loved, no one suspected he would one day return with a title, a fortune and a grudge. But perhaps, if she stops day-dreaming and puts her mind to it, she might discover how he truly feels about her. A charming Cinderella story by an award-winning author.
This is a lighthearted tale in the traditional Regency style of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer—no sex, but plenty of romantic complications and a happy ending.
A love for the books of Jane Austen drew Jacqueline Diamond to the world of the Regency-era romance, and her half-dozen novels in the genre have delighted readers for thirty years. Jackie has gone on to sell novels ranging from mysteries and medical romances to romantic comedies. A former Associated Press reporter in Los Angeles, Jackie has received a career achievement award from Romantic Times magazine and two finalist placements for the RITA Award. She currently writes the Safe Harbor Medical mystery series about a doctor who helps solve crimes affecting his patients and colleagues.

"A very fresh tale of a rejected poor suitor suddenly catapulted to fortune and prestige. Minor characters are quite well handled and balanced, as well as strong main characters who never lose empathy with the reader. Ms. Diamond is one of the most consistently enjoyable Regency authors around.”
“I was thrilled to find another author, like Candice Hern, writing in the great tradition of the Heyer Regency.”
