If you love the Bridgertons, wait until you discover the Blydons . . .

This is the witty, delightful second book in Julia Quinn’s first ever Regency romance trilogy.

Lady Arabella Blydon has both beauty and a brain, and she’s tired of men. When a suitor tells Arabella he’s willing to overlook her appalling bluestocking tendencies on account of her looks and fortune, she decides to take a break from the Marriage Mart. During an extended stay in the country, she never expects to meet Lord John Blackwood, a wounded war hero who intrigues her like no other man.

Lord John has lived through the worst horrors of war, but to him nothing has been as terrifying as Lady Arabella. She is intoxicating, infuriating – and she makes him want to live again. Suddenly he’s writing bad poetry and climbing trees in the pitch-dark night – just so he can dance with her. And even though he knows he can never be the sort of man she deserves, he can’t help wanting her. But when the harsh light of day replaces the magic of midnight, can this tormented soul learn to love again?
