Buttons and Beaus

A novel by

In 1880, Amanda Blackwell's New York City cycling school has become all the rage. Architect Damian Newcastle wants the property Amanda's school sits on to build his dream--the city's first 20-story building. The attraction between the two is instantaneous, but when Amanda learns that the company owned by Damian's father was responsible for the building collapse that killed her own father, she knows nothing will come of the chemistry between the two. While Amanda struggles to maintain her cycling school and keep her uncle from gaining custody of her special-needs brother, Damian works to redeem his family's honor, care for his wheelchair-bound son, and construct his dream building. Both struggle to ignore the desire that grows between them, and both lose.

Brownley's rich, colorful descriptions of 19th-century New York are a delight, her characters are warm and endearing, and readers will laugh out loud at the escapades of Amanda's cycling students. Don't miss this one--it's a keeper.
