♥ A disinherited earl
♥ An animal-loving debutante
♥ A scandalous love triangle
♥ An unsolved murder
♥ Steamy romance
Another heartwarming romance featuring New York Times bestselling author Lauren Royal's "outrageously funny, loyal, compassionate, and unconventional" Chase family
Rescuing animals is an unusual passion for an earl's daughter-but compared to the rest of her family, Lady Lily Ashcroft is downright conventional. Though she fell for dashing Oxford professor Lord Randal Nesbitt at the tender age of sixteen, she buried her feelings in deference to society's expectation that her older sisters marry first. Four years later, her sister Rose has set her sights on Rand. And with two sisters locked in a tempestuous love triangle, scandal can only be around the corner...
When Rand accepts an invitation to stay at the Ashcrofts' country house, he has no idea what he's getting himself into. He's been nursing a secret affection for sweet, compassionate Lily ever since their first meeting. But bold Rose is just as beautiful and shares his academic interests. Now he finds himself caught between two lovely sisters-the one he's expected to wed and the one who's captured his heart...
