Publisher Description

♥  A nobleman and a common girl

♥  A close-knit, meddling family

♥  A trunkful of jewelry

♥  A dastardly kidnapping

♥  Steamy romance!


From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Royal comes the first novel in her beloved series featuring the “outrageously funny, loyal, compassionate, and unconventional” Chase family.


Descended from generations of jewelers, Amethyst Goldsmith loves her craft nearly as much as she loves her family. But she hates that her wedding is mere days away. Amy is promised to her father’s small-minded apprentice, the last man on earth she could ever love, honor, or especially obey. But the date is set, the dress is ordered, and there’s no way out—until the devastating Great Fire of 1666 sweeps through London, shattering her workaday world and recasting her fate…


Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, doesn’t believe in fate. He believes in hard work and securing his family’s future, which means marrying the wealthy, high-born Lady Priscilla Snobs—er, Hobbs. When he rescues a lowly jeweler’s daughter from the inferno, he’s only taking pity on a broken young woman. But as the pieces begin to mend, Amy emerges. Beautiful, passionate, playful Amy, who maddeningly captures his family’s hearts. Soon Colin fears that if he lets his guard down for even a moment, he might find his own heart held hostage as well…


Snowed in together at empty, crumbling Greystone Castle, an earl and a common girl can’t help surrendering to desire. But when the dream is over and reality catches up with them, can they find a way to make their two worlds one?


PLEASE NOTE: This book was formerly titled “Amethyst.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


LAUREN ROYAL is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of humorous historical romance. Her “truly enchanting” novels have won many awards including Booklist's “Top 10 Romance of the Year,” and they’ve earned raves from reviewers including Publishers Weekly, who calls her “an impressive talent.”

Lauren writes steamy historical romance on her own and sweet/clean historical romance with her daughter, Devon Royal. She lives in Southern California with her family, two constantly shedding cats, and a stupendous collection of fuzzy socks. When she's not busy writing, she enjoys singing along (off-key) to Hamilton, dancing (badly), and (wasting time) watching HGTV.

rusciel ,

I don't usually read romances, but...

But I cannot believe the reviews are not showing up in iTunes! More people should read Lauren Royal - she really helps you care about her characters, which is a huge point in the romance genre (and any other genre really)

I don't care much for the cover designs, but what's important is the writing, and the writing is solid, entertaining, and perfect to read both in an armchair with tea or in a chair at the beach!

Nice story

The romance was really sweet and the storyline interesting. But it was full of anachronisms... and Colin's pranks were terrible. Really irritating. It was an entertaining read though.

Great novel

I read this book in one night. It's fun to ready, steamy and suspenseful!
