With the dazzling storytelling that has become her trademark, acclaimed author Connie Brockway sweeps readers to Victorian England—a glittering world of titled society and scandalous secrets—in the enchanting tale of a woman who commits the most startling indiscretion of all: She falls in love.
Letty Potts, a petty schemer by necessity, has decided to go straight. But after narrowly escaping the wrath of her partner in crime, she finds herself at Paddington Station with nothing but the gown she’s wearing and another woman’s train ticket clutched in her hand. Masquerading as the redoubtable “Lady Agatha” of Whyte Wedding Celebrations, Letty arrives in the backwater burg of Little Bidewell, where she is to arrange the nuptials of a young society bride.
Amid the dizzying whirl of pre-wedding festivities, nobody suspects Letty’s secret—except Sir Elliot March. A war hero who has forsworn love, Elliot senses something decidedly amiss about this outspoken young woman, yet she awakens in him a passionate yearning he’d thought was lost forever. Soon, though, a desperate deception embroils them both in a web of scandal and danger as Letty’s past catches up with her, threatening not only her life but Elliot’s—and their love.

The Bridal Season
When someone drops a pearl in your palm, make a fist.
London, the last decade of Victoria’s reign
“But how can I?” Lady Agatha Whyte asked Henri Arnoux in a hushed undertone, painfully aware of the other passengers waiting in the lobby to board trains. “The Bigglesworths are depending on me. They fear that unless they make some sort of statement with the wedding ceremony and postnuptial celebration, the Marquis of Cotton’s family will never accept young Miss Bigglesworth as their equal, and she will be forever marked as socially inferior to her new in-laws.”
“But, how is this your problem, my dear, my darling, Lady Agatha?” M. Arnoux begged in his wonderful French accent.
Lady Agatha stared at him helplessly, trying to think of some way in which to phrase her unique position, and subsequent power, in Society. It would be immodest to call attention to her undoubted influence, but she had to make him understand just how important her services could be ... couldn’t they?
