How to Lose an Earl in Ten Weeks

How to Lose an Earl in Ten Weeks


Already raced through Bridgerton and need something... exquisite to get your scandalous fix?

Well then... you are cordially invited to the wedding of The Earl of Denholm and Miss Essie Craven. (Although, if Essie has her way, there will be no wedding...)

Welcome to the hottest Season that Regency London has ever seen.

An enemies-to-lovers regency romance that's like watching an episode of Bridgerton. Perfect for fans of Georgette Heyer, Outlander and Romancing the Duke.

Miss Essie Craven has been engaged since birth to a man she has only met once. The haughty, black-haired man with the intense blue eyes: Aidan Ravell, Earl of Denholm. The most coveted man in all of the Ton.

The day of their marriage is set. The only problem is, spirited Essie dreams of more than being a Countess. She soon finds out that Aidan has his own reasons for not wishing to marry, but is compelled to proceed due to his sense of honour and the financial baggage his father has left him.

So, Aidan and Essie strike up a deal. Essie will find him a more suitable match, and in the meantime they will keep up appearances.

But soon what is real and what is fake begins to converge. Suddenly, what seemed to be a simple agreement is no longer quite that straightforward . . .
