A Top 10 iBooks Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!

London, 1666

Amethyst Goldsmith makes dazzling jewelry, but her future isn’t nearly as bright as the pieces she creates. Though custom dictates she wed her father’s apprentice, her heart rebels against the match. In mere days Amy will be condemned to a stifling, loveless marriage, and she sees no way out—until the devastating fire of 1666 sweeps through London, and tragedy lands her in the arms of a dashing nobleman who knows a diamond in the rough when he sees it…

Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, has his future all figured out. He’s restoring his crumbling castle and estate to its former glory, and the key to its completion is his rich bride-to-be. But the Great Fire lays waste to his plans, saddling him with trouble—in the form of a lowly shopkeeper’s daughter with whom he’s most inconveniently falling in love...

    This was another hidden gems of a book that I have found through various emails about books. I loved it and could not put it down! Definitely an “adult” book, but the story is even better than the bedroom scenes (and I love me some romance!) Good read! Thank you for writing this Lauren Royal!

    I don't usually read romance. This was steamy with believable characters. It was great at explaining the time period and the customers of the time. Definitely recommend

    I liked this book a great deal. It was charming and held my attention. I was thinking it a long story, but did not mind, because nothing was left out. The characters were real, and I enjoyed meeting them.
