A marriage of convenience—until her fiancé falls for her sister.
When Elisabeth’s husband dies, leaving her penniless and with child, she must throw off her blacks and reenter London society to find a suitor. But how can she hope to compete with a fresh batch of debutantes, especially when one is none other than her too-charming sister Charlotte?
With a bat of her ridiculously long lashes, Charlotte has gentlemen flocking to her like ants to honey, though she would rather not be consumed, thank you very much. In fact, if gentlemen could just keep their pincers to themselves, she would be much obliged. Charlotte yearns for someone who will admire her for something more than the pretty turn of her ankles, but how can she find something as monumental as love within the jumbled conversations of a ballroom?
Things only grow more complicated as Elisabeth and Charlotte find themselves pining for each other’s suitors. Can they untangle themselves from this quagmire of confusion and follow their hearts when it means putting their livelihood, reputation, and relationship with one another at risk?
