9780060732066: Much Ado about You

A racy Regency romance from the New York Times bestselling author, Eloisa James.

Never marry for love, it's the worst reason of all…

Finding herself under the unlikely guardianship of the kind but shambolic Duke of Holbrook, Tess Essex is suddenly faced with her duty: marry well and marry quickly. Once that's taken care of she can arrange matches for her three younger sisters: Annabel, Imogen and Josephine.

But just when everything looks like it might be in order Tess's own fiancé gets cold feet and one of her sisters elopes with a reckless young lord…

And is Tess really as sensible and proper as she thinks she is? Lucius Felton is a rogue whose own mother considers him irredeemable but he is delicious and obscenely wealthy…Surely she can't really be contemplating marriage to one of London's most infamous rakes?

Absurd as it seems Tess fears she may have fallen utterly and completely in love…

Review:

Praise for MUCH ADO ABOUT YOU:

‘So full of dashing cads in breeches that it’s got me seriously hot under the collar. Bravo for Eloisa!’ FIONA WALKER

‘Great fun and love the modern take on a classic Regency romance, with all its nods and winks to Austen…a great achievement that matches fast-paced romance with well-crafted social observation.’ FIONA WALKER

‘Great fun! I couldn't put it down. Move over Georgette Heyer!’ DAISY WAUGH

‘Hurrah! Romance is back in fashion. No grisly body count, no lurking serial killer. The only four-letter word is love. Choc-full of romantic heroes that would give Darcy a run for his money. Sheer joy from beginning to end.’ Carole Matthews

‘In the first in a new series featuring the wonderfully amusing Essex sisters, New York Times best-selling James' gift for superb characterization and elegantly sensual, delightfully witty prose creates a thoroughly romantic treat.’ Booklist

‘[Lucius] possesses a quiet intensity and magnetic presence.’ Publishers Weekly

‘There's nothing old-fashioned about the very spicy love scenes.’ The Seattle Times
