James and Juliana's story — second in the Regency Chase Brides series!

London, 1816

Lady Juliana Chase has never met a problem she couldn’t solve—or one she could resist. If friends and family don’t always appreciate her efforts on their behalf, well, that’s only because they underestimate her. James Trevor, the young Earl of Stafford, is a prime example—Juliana knows her friend Amanda is the perfect match for James, but he seems intent on spoiling her plans. Lucky for him, “defeat” isn’t in Juliana’s vocabulary…

Just as James realized his dream of studying medicine, tragedy stole the love of his life. Though it’s time to move on, the last thing he wants is another romantic entanglement—ever. But somehow he’s got two: first, this ridiculous matchmaking scheme of Juliana’s, and second, an inexplicable infatuation with the matchmaker herself. If he’s going to get the girl, he’ll have to beat her at her own game—and there’s no easy victory when you’re playing with the stubbornest, most cunning meddler in all of London…

Series Info: Regency Chase Brides

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…
