When an Earl Meets a Girl by Lauren Royal

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Royal comes the first novel in her beloved series featuring the “outrageously funny, loyal, compassionate, and unconventional” Chase family. Descended from generations of jewelers, the only thing Amethyst Goldsmith loves more than her craft is her family. And the only thing she hates is that her wedding is mere days away. Amy is betrothed to her father’s small-minded apprentice, the last man on earth she could ever love, honor, or especially obey. But the date is set, the dress is ordered, and there’s no way out—until the devastating Great Fire of 1666 sweeps through London, shattering her world and changing her fate… Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, doesn’t believe in fate. He believes in duty, hard work, and planning for the future, which means marrying the rich, high-born Lady Priscilla Snobs—er, Hobbs. But when he rescues a lowly shopkeeper’s daughter from the inferno, he soon finds he’s stumbled on something more compelling than duty. Amy’s beauty, her passion, her playfulness enchant him, and Colin—not to mention his entire family—cannot help falling head over heels. In the aftermath of disaster, the rules of society are temporarily abandoned—long enough for an earl and a common girl to surrender to desire. But not long enough to escape the past, or the broken promises they can only hope true love will heal… PLEASE NOTE: This book was formerly titled “Amethyst.”
