James, the scandalously uncivilized Duke of Harland, requires a bride with a spotless reputation for a strictly business arrangement. Charlene Beckett, the unacknowledged daughter of an earl and a courtesan, has just been offered a life-altering fortune to pose as her half-sister, Lady Dorothea, and win the duke's proposal. When secrets are revealed and passion overwhelms, James must decide if the last lady he should want is really everything he needs. And Charlene must decide if the promise of a new life is worth risking everything, including her heart.

I saw this book described somewhere as "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory meets The Bachelor", which sounds insane but is actually strangely accurate? Anyway, this is a debut Regency and it's a pretty solid effort. The premise is interesting enough to be memorable, and while this isn't my favorite historical romance ever, and nothing feels super-duper groundbreaking here, it's still an entertaining read for romance fans looking for a new author to enjoy.
