Sparks fly in this irresistible final installment of the fan-favorite Cabot Sisters trilogy in New York Times bestselling author Julia London’s classic, The Scoundrel and the Debutante.
The dust of the Cabot sisters’ shocking plans to rescue their family from certain ruin may have settled, but Prudence Cabot is left standing in the rubble of scandal. Now regarded as an unsuitable bride, she’s tainted among the ton. Yet this unwilling wallflower is ripe for her own adventure. And when an irresistibly sexy American stranger on a desperate mission enlists her help, she simply can’t deny the temptation.
The fate of Roan Matheson’s family depends on how quickly he can find his runaway sister and persuade her to return to her betrothed. Scouring the rustic English countryside with the sensually wicked Prudence at his side—and in his bed—he’s out of his element. But once Roan has a taste of the sizzling passion that can lead to forever, he must choose between his heart’s obligations and its forbidden desires.

Bestseller London (The Devil Takes a Bride) returns with a lively and unusual romp in her series about sisters whose methods of choosing spouses have shocked Regency society. Middle sister Prudence Cabot envies her happily married sisters and blames their notorious courtships for her single status. Longing for adventure, the misnamed Prudence abandons an approved trip with her chaperone, instead choosing to assist a handsome fellow who's trying to locate his missing sister. Roan Matheson, despite being American, "in trade," and nearly engaged to another woman, is an appealing hero who knows how to treat an English miss. Once Roan and Prudence abandon their stagecoach for seduction, they're on the road to a happy conclusion, despite setbacks caused by their families and a blackmailer. Prudence's personality sparkles, and while her antics are illogical, London's well-honed storytelling skills carry the day.
