"Historical romance devotees will enjoy Michels's adoring use of some of the classic tropes of the genre—the spare heir, the wrong brother as hero, the heroine in men's clothing—but what makes the book so enjoyable is the way Michels makes the familiar fresh."—SARAH MACLEAN, The Washington Post for The Infamous Heir
The Spare Heirs Society Cordially Invites You to Meet Ash Claughbane: The Imposter
Lady Evangeline Green is living a lie. To please her family, she masquerades as the perfect debutante…until she meets the wickedly charming Lord Crosby. With him, there are no rules. She's finally free to do as she desires—but freedom comes with a price, and Lord Crosby is not what he seems…
Ash is not Lord Crosby. He's a con artist, a noble Spare Heir living off his silver tongue. When the Greens ruined his family, he swore he'd make them pay, and he never doubted his devotion to revenge…until he met Evangeline. Now, caught in a web of lies, torn between duty and desire, what's a con to do but deceive all of London and steal the one lady who dared match wits with the devil himself?

Michels's delicious second Spare Heirs Regency (after The Infamous Heir) unites a proper lady and a swindling gentleman in an unlikely romance. Lady Evangeline Green is determined to be the perfect debutante and land a husband to escape her demanding mother's tutelage. What she doesn't expect is a second encounter with Ash Claughbane, who kissed her and left her waiting a year before and who's now calling himself Lord Crosby. Ash set out to destroy Evie's father, Lord Rightworth, because Rightworth engineered the financial ruin of Ash's family, but he didn't count on meeting Evie again. He becomes completely entranced by her even after learning that she's Rightworth's daughter. When their mutual feelings develop, Evie's hopeful that she'll be able to convince Ash to remain in London. Ash and Evie will leave readers mesmerized and the evolution of their relationship is real and believable. Michels expertly delivers a heart-wrenching romance that will leave the reader eagerly anticipating future installments.
