By all accounts, the handsome Simon Basset is on track to propose to his best friend’s beautiful sister, the lovely – almost-on-the shelf – Daphne Bridgerton. But the two of us know the truth – it was all a plan to keep Simon free of marriage-minded society mothers! And as for Daffy, surely she will attract a few worthy suitors now that a duke has declared she’s desirable.
“Set in aristocratic England, the plot of this story may be simple, but the characters more than make up for this apparent simplicity by capturing your heart from page one.”

Their trick works for a while. But as Daphne waltzes across ballrooms with Simon, it’s difficult to remember that their relationship is completely fake. Perhaps it’s his devilishly smiling face, certainly it’s the fact that his eyes seem to burn whenever he looks at her. She didn’t expect it, but she seems to be falling for him for real. Amidst the glittering, gossip-filled, cut-throat society of London’s elite, one thing remains certain: love doesn’t care about rules.
