(The first book in the Halifax Hellions series)
A Novella by

 
 
The first novella in Alexandra Vasti's “hot, smart, funny, and charming as hell”* Halifax Hellions series.

The Halifax Hellions are the most scandalous, outrageous, ungovernable ladies in London. From the day of their debut—in which Matilda smoked a cheroot and Margo tied a cherry stem in a knot with her tongue—they’ve turned the ton upside down. But when Matilda elopes with a dangerous aristocrat, Margo must stop her twin before this new misadventure becomes a permanent marriage. For help, Margo turns to her brother’s best friend—because if anyone can get them to Scotland in time, it’s starchy solicitor Henry Mortimer.

Henry Mortimer has precisely one secret in his otherwise buttoned-up life: he’s been in love with Margo for seven wonderful, agonizing years. When she turns up at his doorstep, soaked to the skin and desperate for his help, he cannot turn her down. A week alone in a carriage with the object of his desires an arm’s length away? Surely he can survive that. He hopes.

But the road to Scotland is paved with disasters—caves and crashes and the bloody rain that keeps forcing Henry to hold a damp, shivering, dreadfully tempting Margo in his arms. Only an unstoppable force could drag the truth of Henry’s affection from his lips. Unfortunately for him, Margo Halifax has yet to be stopped.

Praise for this book

"The Halifax Hellions are the very definition of good things coming in small packages. Filled to the brim with heart and heat, these absolutely delicious stories are not only ideal comfort reads but masterclasses in novella writing. I'm forever in awe of Alexandra Vasti's talent." - Sarah Adler

"I rooted for each of the Halifax Hellions from the very first page. It was an incandescent pleasure to watch all three of their men come completely undone - none of them see it coming and they each fall beautifully. Alexandra's plots are so zany and so fun but also earnestly explored and impeccably executed! If you are new to novellas or a novella skeptic, I implore you to pick up the Halifax Hellions and let Alexandra change your mind with these clever, hot, joyrides. Perfect for anyone who loves Tessa Dare but with a fresh voice wholly her own. I will pick up anything Alexandra writes." - Rosie Danan

"Delightful, truly scrumptious - like if Lisa Kleypas and Tessa Dare had a sexy baby. Alexandra Vasti is my favorite writer, full-stop." - Mazey Eddings

"These stories are hot, smart, funny, and charming as hell--much like the Hellions themselves. I've read them each twice." - Alix E Harrow

"It's my opinion that Alexandra Vasti is one of the best historical romance authors working today. Her Halifax Hellions series is unique, inventive, hilarious, and genuinely delightful. Superbly written and sensationally funny, each novella is like one of those divine chocolates wrapped in foil and containing a lusciously rich center - a real treat." - India Holton

"The Halifax Hellions series is everything you want a historical romance to be: emotional and sexy and full of thrilling hijinks, with jaw-dropping prose that transports you in every possible way. Each sibling and their partner has a unique journey, but there's an undeniable thread of finding radical acceptance in love that ties the three together beautifully. Alexandra Vasti has easily secured her place as a superstar in the genre." - Jessica Joyce
