"Utterly delightful friends-to-lovers story. This is by far the funniest that I've read, and the most adorable too."
~ Buried Under Romance


James Hargrave, Earl of Arden, urgently needs a wife. He's resigned himself to a marriage of convenience and has even chosen a bride: Kate Honeycourt, his best friend's sister.

Kate has been on the shelf for years. Why, then, does she so firmly turn him down? Surely she can't be holding out for a love match?

But Kate has a proposal of her own: she'll find James a bride he can fall in love with.

Armed with a list of requirements, Kate sets out to find James the perfect wife. But things don't progress as either of them expect...

A Regency romance featuring an earl who needs to marry in a hurry, the spinster he turns to for help, and a list that grows... and grows... and grows.

(The Earl's Dilemma was originally published under the penname Emily May.)

Q & A with the author


How would you describe your writing?

Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She's why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you've not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I've also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments.

Who would like this book?

This book would appeal to readers who like the historical backdrop and humor of Georgette Heyer and the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan.

Genre: Historical Romance
