Publisher Description

A PopSugar, Oprah Daily, and BookBub Most Anticipated Romance of 2022!

Victorian high society’s most daring equestrienne finds love and an unexpected ally in her fight for independence in the strong arms of London’s most sought after and devastatingly handsome half-Indian tailor.


Evelyn Maltravers understands exactly how little she's worth on the marriage mart. As an incurable bluestocking from a family tumbling swiftly toward ruin, she knows she'll never make a match in a ballroom. Her only hope is to distinguish herself by making the biggest splash in the one sphere she excels: on horseback. In haute couture. But to truly capture London's attention she'll need a habit-maker who's not afraid to take risks with his designs—and with his heart.

Half-Indian tailor Ahmad Malik has always had a talent for making women beautiful, inching his way toward recognition by designing riding habits for Rotten Row's infamous Pretty Horsebreakers—but no one compares to Evelyn. Her unbridled spirit enchants him, awakening a depth of feeling he never thought possible.

But pushing boundaries comes at a cost and not everyone is pleased to welcome Evelyn and Ahmad into fashionable society. With obstacles spanning between them, the indomitable pair must decide which hurdles they can jump and what matters most: making their mark or following their hearts?

The Siren was a hit

Thoroughly enjoy this book. The incredible handsome tailor and the society miss falling in love in a time when breaking social rules weren’t allow. On top of that Ahmad is half English half Indian. A huge taboo. Evelyn felt she was an outsider trying to fit in to save her family through marriage. But trying to overcome class and racial prejudice made me route all the more for them. And Ahmad’s amazing designs made me want one. The description of his gowns alone is worth the read.

Fascinating romance

The Siren of Sussex is book one in the Belles of London series. I adored the characters in this book. I would have never imagined a tailor being an amazing hero, but Ahmad certainly is a dark and handsome character. I enjoyed Evelyn’s transformation from insecure country girl to the Siren of Sussex. I’m crossing my fingers that Evelyn’s friends will each get their own romance. It is rare to find a story where even the side characters intrigue. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Another hit!

I loved the Parish Orphans Of Devon books and the Siren of Sussex is a wonderful spin off of the series. I’m so happy that there is another book coming soon! What I love most about this book is the elaborate descriptions of amazing fashion creations. I wish I could buy a gown from Ahmad! A must read!
