Summary

Summary

An NPR Pick of April Romance Novels

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens returns with a new series that captures the simmering desires and intrigues of early Victorians as only she can. Ryder Cavanaugh’s step-siblings are determined to make their own marks in London society. Seeking fortune and passion, the Cavanaughs will delight listeners with their bold exploits.

An independent nobleman

Lord Randolph Cavanaugh is loyal and devoted—but only to family. To the rest of the world, he is aloof and untouchable, a respected and driven entrepreneur. But Rand yearns for more in life, and when he travels to Buckinghamshire to review a recent investment, he discovers a passionate woman who will challenge his rigid self-control.

A determined lady

Felicia Throgmorton intends to keep her family afloat. For decades, her father was consumed by his inventions and now, months after his death, with their finances in ruins, her brother insists on continuing their father’s tinkering. Felicia is desperate to hold together what is left of the estate. Then she discovers she must help persuade their latest investor that her father’s follies are a risk worth taking.

Together—the perfect team

Randolph arrives at Throgmorton Hall to discover that the invention on which he has staked his reputation has exploded, the inventor is not who he expected, and a fiercely intelligent woman now holds the key to his future success. But unflinching courage in the face of dismaying hurdles is a trait they share, and Randolph and Felicia are forced to act together against ruthless foes to protect everything they hold dear.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s refreshing to see an intelligent heroine who isn’t labeled a Bluestocking or Smarty Pants Spinster. Better yet is the support she gets from Rand and her brother, William John. These men are grateful for her brains, not threatened by them. Swoon! Rand proves himself to be everything a hero should be: handsome, protective without being possessive, an alpha male without being an alphahole…[And] the villain’s story adds an excellent sense of intrigue and danger before resolving with a surprising twist.” NPR
“Laurens crafts a love story that suits her style and the era’s history. Adding a bit of suspense, a strong heroine, and a hero who appreciates her intelligence keeps readers rapt.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Any reader will appreciate Felicia’s pride in her skills, her bittersweet knowledge that her father never saw or valued her talent, and her growing love for the man who believes in her from the start. This is an unusual and winsome historical romance.” Publishers Weekly
“With its refreshingly different protagonists, masterfully plotted story line, and generous soupçon of scorching sensuality, this tale will have readers feeling as though they have hit the historical-romance jackpot as Laurens launches her new Cavanaughs series." Booklist
