Description

"[A] feast of female empowerment, positive friendships, feel-good moments, and social satire." &; NPR

&;A jolt of electricity, a blast of fresh air&;everything delightful and exciting you could want it to be.&; &; The New York Times Book Review

In the first book in Eva Leigh's new Union of the Rakes series, a bluestocking enlists a faux suitor to help her land an ideal husband only to be blindsided by real desire&;

Lady Grace Wyatt is content as a wallflower, focusing on scientific pursuits rather than the complications of society matches. But when a handsome, celebrated naturalist returns from abroad, Grace wishes, for once, to be noticed. Her solution: to &;build&; the perfect man, who will court her publicly and help her catch his eye. Grace&;s colleague, anthropologist Sebastian Holloway, is just the blank slate she requires.

To further his own research on English society, Sebastian agrees to let Grace transform him from a bespectacled, bookish academic into a dashing&;albeit fake&;rake. Between secret lessons on how to be a rogue and exaggerated public flirtations, Grace&;s feelings for Sebastian grow from friendship into undeniable, inconvenient, real attraction. If only she hadn&;t asked him to help her marry someone else...

Sebastian is in love with brilliant, beautiful Grace, but their bargain is complete, and she desires another. Yet when he&;s faced with losing her forever, Sebastian will do whatever it takes to tell her the truth, even if it means risking his own future&;and his heart.
