October brings a delicious madcap adventure from the pen of Emma Jensen, one of Regency's brightest new stars.

Lady Chloe Somersham is the talk of society and the despair of her father. Fed up with her merry pranks, her apoplectic father orders her to find a husband, any husband, as long as he holds the rank of an earl or higher. To his utter dismay, she chooses a penniless Irish earl recently arrived upon the London scene.

Liam MacRaith, Lord Mountrath, has nothing but scorn for the hated English and absolutely no intention of wedding an impudent young miss who thinks she can buy him for her husband. But there's something quite irresistible about the impish sprite, whose unorthodox style leaves him bewitched, bothered and bewildered.

Ms. Jensen's wonderful love story brims with spirited emotion and outrageous wit-a new treasure for your bookshelf. (Oct., 247 pp., $4.50)
