A Top 10 iBooks Bestseller from a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!


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 young earl 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 penniless shopkeeper’s daughter with whom he’s most inconveniently falling in love…


PLEASE NOTE: This book is the SWEET & CLEAN version of “Amethyst” by Lauren Royal. If you’d prefer to read the original book, which includes steamy love scenes and stronger language, look for “Amethyst.”

The Earls Unsuitable Bride

So terrible I had to quit after 100 pages. I was hopeful it would get better because of other reviews. The story was suppose to take place in late 1600’s. It is difficult to put oneself in that time period when the dialogue is 2019. These authors of historical England need to do some research of that time period if they want to captivate their audience. I am so glad I didn’t pay for the stupid book.I give one star thinking my review will be rejected if I don’t give any.
