Alexandra Chase has always liked being the perfect daughter, thank you very much. Why would she bother chafing against society’s restrictions when instead she could be basking in the warm glow of its approval? But when her brother’s best friend—and secret obsession—‐returns from a long spell abroad, she begins losing interest in the suitable young lord she’s expected to marry. Suddenly, family duty and a flawless reputation seem less important than the chance, however slight, that her girlhood crush might notice her now that she’s all grown up…
Tristan Nesbitt has done some growing up himself over the last few years, what with moving across oceans, inheriting a title, and facing a devastating scandal. But through it all, he’s never forgotten the Chases, the closest thing he had to a family back in his school days. When his old friend Griffin Chase requests a favor, he’s happy to oblige, as long as he can maintain enough distance from the family that his infamous past won’t tarnish their good name. Unfortunately, one Chase seems intent on getting much closer to him than she should…
Playing matchmaking mama to three Regency ladies isn’t easy—especially if you’re not even a mama, but a clueless older brother thrust into unexpected responsibility. Alexandra is the dependable one, Juliana the schemer, and Corinna the artistic rebel. But Griffin Chase’s three younger sisters all prove equally maddening as he attempts to help them find love…while perhaps managing to secure a lady’s affections for himself…
…an amazing love story…as delicious as the recipes for sweets…a
deeply satisfying and original read.
