Book Description

Critically acclaimed author Minerva Spencer brings a rebellious spirit to historical romance with a vibrant debut series about a new generation of Regency renegades who subvert the social expectations of the day and carve out their own paths in life.

Spencer employs humor, intelligence, and wit to weave the tale of an unapologetically opinionated lady and an effortlessly charming rogue who find themselves thrown together in a not-so-convenient marriage of necessity.

Can a willful wallflower and a headstrong hedonist find common ground in their distaste for convention and forge a lasting--and loving--union?

The cure for a willful wife . . .

Drusilla Clare is full of opinions about why a woman shouldn't marry. But that doesn't stop the rush of desire she feels each time her best friend's brother, notorious rake Gabriel Marlington, crosses her path. So imagine her dismay when she finds herself in the clutches of a scoundrel, only to be rescued by Gabriel himself. And when Gabriel's heartless--and heart-pounding--proposal comes, it's enough to make Dru's formidable resolve crumble . . .

. . . is a smitten husband.

She's sharp-tongued, exasperating--and due to one careless moment--about to become his wife. Still, something about Drusilla has Gabriel intrigued. First there's the delicious flush of her skin every time she delivers a barb--and then the surprisingly sensual feel of her in his arms. Gabriel even finds himself challenged by her unusual philosophies. And when he discovers a clandestine rival for Dru's affection, his temperature flares even hotter. But the real threat to their happiness is one neither of the newlyweds sees coming. If they're to save their future--and their very lives--they'll need to trust in each other and their growing love.
