Description

A Top 10 iBooks Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!

London, 1666

Amethyst Goldsmith makes dazzling jewelry, but her future isn’t nearly as bright as the pieces she creates. Though custom dictates she wed her father’s apprentice, her heart rebels against the match. In mere days Amy will be condemned to a stifling, loveless marriage, and she sees no way out—until the devastating fire of 1666 sweeps through London, and tragedy lands her in the arms of a dashing nobleman who knows a diamond in the rough when he sees it…

Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, has his future all figured out. He’s restoring his crumbling castle and estate to its former glory, and the key to its completion is his rich bride-to-be. But the Great Fire lays waste to his plans, saddling him with trouble—in the form of a lowly shopkeeper’s daughter with whom he’s most inconveniently falling in love...

    I'm usually not a historical romance reader but after reading one of Nora's books I wanted to give the genre a try. This was my first Lauren Royal book and I loved it. The story is fast paced and not predictable. Character are well developed and relatable. It also made me fall in love with the Chase family, and want to read more by Lauren.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the setting, characters and pace of this novel, will continue with this series as I found myself being drawn further & further into the Chase family. Ms. Royal writes with humour and with great appreciation for historical detail which if I found utterly addicting and can't wait to download Emerald the second in the series.
