April Lady

Gossip, scandal and an unforgettable Regency romance




A dashing tale of romance and heroism told by one of the bestselling and greatest historical novelists of all time.

IF YOU LOVE BRIDGERTON, YOU'LL LOVE GEORGETTE HEYER!

'A rollicking good read that will be of particular joy to Bridgerton viewers ... the permanent glister of scandal [...] ties the whole thing together' INDEPENDENT
'[My] generation's Julia Quinn' ADJOA ANDOH, star of Bridgerton, in RED

'One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer's books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen's' JOANNE HARRIS
__________________________
Nell Cardross and her husband are madly in love...

But they're very bad at showing it. While Nell believes her new husband, the Earl, married her out of convenience, Giles Cardross worries that his young wife is more interested in his money than his heart.

And Nell's secretive and extravagant spending is becoming a problem...

As she attempts to pay off her brother's never-ending gambling debts, and prevent the Earl's half-sister from eloping with a potentially ruinous match, will Nell's heart of gold lead her - and her marriage - into trouble?
