A Top 10 Kindle Bestseller from a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

London, 1666: Amethyst Goldsmith makes dazzling jewelry, but her future isn't nearly as bright as the pieces she creates. Though custom dictates she wed her father's apprentice, her heart rebels against the match. In mere days Amy will be condemned to a stifling, loveless marriage, and she sees no way out - until the devastating fire of 1666 sweeps through London, and tragedy lands her in the arms of a dashing young earl who knows a diamond in the rough when he sees it...

Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, has his future all figured out. He's restoring his crumbling castle and estate to its former glory, and the key to its completion is his rich bride-to-be. But the Great Fire lays waste to his plans, saddling him with trouble - in the form of a penniless shopkeeper's daughter with whom he's most inconveniently falling in love...

PLEASE NOTE: This book is a SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE. If you'd prefer to read a steamy romance with a similar plot, look for "Amethyst" by Lauren Royal.
