Happy Book Birthday to Ashlyn Macnamara!

TO LURE A PROPER LADYPlease help us congratulate USA Today bestselling author Ashlyn Macnamara on today’s release of TO LURE A PROPER LADY! Woo HOOOO!

TO LURE A PROPER LADY is the first book in a new series of historical romance novels that we’re calling the Duke-Defying Daughters series. It’s about three raucous young sisters and their adle-pated, but sweet, father who is trying to get them all wed before he dies.

Blogger Andrea Murray says, “I cannot praise this book highly enough! If you love historical romances, you must read this novel.”

In this steamy novel from Ashlyn Macnamara—“a born storyteller” (Jennifer McQuiston) who “brings all the elegance and romance of the Regency to life” (Tessa Dare)—a dutiful young lady tries to resist the charms of a rogue from the legendary Bow Street Runners.

When Lady Elizabeth Wilde and her sisters are summoned once again to their chronically anxious father’s deathbed, she’s shocked to find that his worries are at last justified. He’s terribly ill, and Lizzie suspects poison. But when she seeks help from the Bow Street Runners, her request is answered by a rough-hewn rogue known only as Dysart. Though his irreverent charm by turns shocks and captivates her, a man of Dysart’s background is an altogether inappropriate choice for a duke’s daughter—isn’t he?

Although Dysart has his reasons to disdain polite society, the promise of supplemental income from a noble’s coffers is too tempting to deny. But if Dysart means to apprehend the culprit who poisoned the duke, he’ll need to avoid any and all distractions—like the delicious swish of Lady Elizabeth’s hips. Yet as the investigation begins to unearth secrets he’d rather remain hidden, Dysart must decide at a moment’s notice whether to hold Elizabeth at arm’s length . . . or pull her dangerously close.
