In bestselling author Ella Quinn’s intriguing new Regency trilogy, a dashing suitor must decide if love and marriage are mutually exclusive . . .
Viscount Gavin Turley is convinced that love matches cause nothing but trouble. Still, after months of courting, he’s fallen for Miss Georgie Featherton. He’s passionate about her, in fact. But words of love are not an indulgence he will allow himself. When he presents Georgie with his marriage proposal, he will lead with his head—not his heart. His qualifications as a husband are excellent, after all. What could go wrong?
No sooner does Gavin kneel on one knee than Georgie’s heart goes aflutter with joy. Finally, the proposal she longed for had arrived. Yet Gavin seemed to be listing his credentials for a business partnership, not a romantic union. Without a declaration of love, Georgie can only reject his offer—unless the ladies of the ton, and Georgie’s grandmamma, have anything to do with it. For sometimes it takes a wiser eye to see the love behind a guarded heart—and a clever scheme to bring it out of hiding . . .
Praise for The Most Eligible Lord in London
“Quinn explores the allures and idiosyncrasies of aristocratic life with wit and charm reminiscent of Jane Austen. This intelligent romance gets the series off to a promising start."
Quinn's alluring second Lords of London Regency romance (after The Most Eligible Lord in London) introduces an admirable heroine determined to find a love match. Georgiana "Georgie" Featherton eagerly anticipates a union with Viscount Gavin Turley right up until his less-than-romantic proposal. When Gavin proves unable to pronounce his love, Georgie rejects him and leaves London to lick her wounds at Littlewood, the home of her friend Adeline Littleton. Gavin is resistant to falling in love after witnessing his father die of a broken heart shortly after the death of Gavin's mother. Still, when he discovers Georgie's flight, he chases after her, hoping to change her mind. Unwelcome at Littlewood, Gavin accepts an invitation from the dowager Lady Littleton to stay at her nearby home instead and soon Lady Littleton, together with her friends the dowager Duchess of Bridgewater and the dowager Viscountess Featherton, cook up a scheme to reunite the young couple. As Georgie and Gavin's romance heats up, Gavin's defenses crumble but when another suitor enters the picture, he may already be too late. The deliciously complicated courtship between Gavin and Georgie is only enhanced by their meddling friends' well-meant efforts to propel them toward the altar. Regency fans will be delighted. \n
