An outsider at her first English ball, Jewel is fascinated with the beautiful dresses and lovely dancing, but she’s vowed to save the Earl of Winchcombe from her cousin’s marriage trap. At first glimpse of the handsome lord, her heart beats faster. As they plan to thwart her cousin’s machinations, she discovers a kindred spirit in Oliver—even if he’s a peer and she’s a lowly colonist. Caught kissing the earl, the ball ends in disaster and Jewel’s displeased uncle whisks her away to Scotland.

Lord Scar, as the ton calls Oliver, would rather be anywhere than at a godforsaken masquerade ball, and when he learns from the free-spirited colonist about the nefarious marriage plan, he grudgingly accepts her help. Jewel intrigues him and sets his heart racing. Yet, when the ball is over and the mask is off—Oliver curses the scar that will send her screaming away.

When her uncle banishes her, Oliver comes to her rescue by offering Jewel his hand in marriage. She agrees, despite his disfigurement. But what’s a beastly lord like him to do with such a beautiful wife—especially when he discovers she’s delightfully saucy?

Praise

The writing is clever, witty, and instantly captivating.  The characters are well developed, layered with humor and heartfelt emotions.  Even the secondary characters are well thought out and delightful additions to the story.  The HEA and years-later epilogue were terrific.  This is truly a wonderful story, one that I know I'll be reading again and again.” -Viper S., Goodreads

I did enjoy most of this book. The characters of Oliver, Earl of Winchcombe and Julianna Latham were very likeable. The plot just got a bit too complex as the story progressed. There was a mystery about letters from their fathers which were in Julianna’s uncle’s possession. There’s as also ...more

Oliver and Jewel are both interesting characters and overall, I enjoyed their story. But there were a few parts in the middle that were kind of bland. In any case, it is a good historical romance and I did find it entertaining.

I've been reading more and more historical romance again. This book was set in 1775 which is a time period I don't usually visit,
