Piqued and Repiqued

Book 5 in the Branwell Chronicles

Available now at these fine book sellers.

Mr. Jonathan Blysdale is everything a gentleman should be—well-bred, fashionable, athletic, and rich—except his fortune comes from trade, and he has endured the snubs of the gentry and nobility his entire life. His one ambition is to achieve the perfect match—to marry the most prized catch in the aristocracy—and thus silence his critics forever.

Lady Athena Dibbington was born to lead the ton. The beautiful only daughter of an Earl, with a fortune of forty thousand pounds, there seems to be nothing to stand in her way. She has spent years cultivating her circle, where the only exception to her rule of perfection is her childhood friend, Iris Slougham.

When Mr. Blysdale dares to approach Lady Athena, therefore, she snubs him, and when Iris questions her judgement, she makes it clear that she would rather die than submit to the attentions of a mere tradesman’s son, no matter how wealthy he may be. But Jonathan has had years to cement his determination, and it only remains to be seen which of them is the stronger-willed—or whether there is a more valuable prize to be won.
