"This very romantic love story is unwaveringly sweet and unquestionably beautiful. A period piece that spans the years...begins with a question mark and ends with a happy exclamation. Brilliant!"
—Beyond the Pages Review
"Depth and growth and a subtle finding of love and friendship."
—Posh Tomes Review
Meet Alice Belle—the Bossy Belle—used to getting her way. If anyone has to fall on the matrimonial sword it will be she and not her sisters. She has set her sights on the richest, most titled gentlemen in her acquaintance. The perfect man to make her father happy, leaving her beloved sisters free to marry whom they choose.
Meet Robert Crawford—ringleader—used to masterminding his way. If anyone is going to marry Alice Belle, it is he. Never mind that he's poor, without a title, and completely unsuitable for Alice in the eyes of her father. He loves her. Which makes him the perfect man to make her happy, whether she realizes it or not.
Meet Dinah Belle—the Blasé Belle—who never gets emotional because there is no problem—including love—that she cannot solve with her superior intellect. The irrational emotion of love has destroyed her family, but it must have a cure, and she has the perfect test case by which to discover it.
Meet Graham Abernathy—the popular duke's son—a gentleman who goes out of his way to please others and be well liked. Not that it's done him any good, since the woman he loves has thrown him over for someone else. Heartbroken, he attracts the interest of one Dinah Belle, who has her sights set on him—for research, of all things.
Dinah has no intention of failing. He has no intention of being cured.
Meet Bridget Belle—the Bookish Belle—her head full of mischief and ideas. Unlike her sisters, she has every intention of marrying a storybook hero. Someone romantic and passionate—just like her.
Meet Benjamin Abernathy—the sensible duke's son—his head firmly on his shoulders. Being the rational one amongst his friends has seen him through school and the war. But it will take more than reason and logic to win a battle of wits against Bridget.
Meet Seraphina Belle—the Belle Belle—whose face has launched a legion of metaphorical ships. Since her birth caused her mother's death, she's determined to be the perfect daughter. As a duchess at the height of respectability, she is known for turning out perfect matches... until he threatens to ruin her perfect reputation.
Meet Christian Hughes—bastard—not that you'd say it to his face. The famed pugilist has always solved his problems with his fists, which is probably why he's never gotten over his fascination with Sera. He has always assumed she was out of his reach, until a scandal brings her close--and the only way out of it is together.
Meet Charlotte Belle—the Bovine Belle—who has made a career of being utterly unremarkable. The middle and forgotten child, she is completely unseen, until he sees her. Not that it matters, because the only thing worse than falling in love is doing so with someone who can never love you back.
Meet Damon Cade, Viscount Savage—consummate rake—which makes him the perfect agent for the Crown. Weary of his past violent escapades, he accepts an assignment making matches for the Belles to ensure their father's ties to London will be permanent. After a successful campaign, only Charlotte is left unattached. He doesn't want to marry her off to anyone but himself... if only she would believe him.
