Meara Platt












"My Fair Lily is a bona fide page-turner, a delightful Regency historical romance that will leave you clamoring for more from this exciting debut author. . . . Gruffly gallant Ewan Cameron, Laird Carnach, and Lily Farthingale, the pretty young English bluestocking he struggles to resist, are perfect romantic foils. I didn't want My Fair Lily to end!"

~ Patricia Ryan, USA Today Bestselling Author of Medieval and Contemporary Romance

The Make-Believe Marriage

He is sizzling hot. She is nothing but trouble. Enjoy this next offering in the best selling Farthingale series - Regency romances with humor, heart, sizzling heroes, and a dash of mayhem.

Octavian Thorne, a much decorated Royal Navy captain, has made it through major battles without injury but cannot seem to get through a single encounter with Lady Sydney Harcourt unscathed. The hoyden is beautiful, brilliant, and trouble with a capital "T", and yet he would risk everything to protect her, even - dear heaven - marrying her.

Lady Sydney Harcourt, bluestocking and ton misfit, adores Captain Octavian Thorne. He is brave, dashing, and all the young ladies are after him. So what chance does she have to capture the heart of this big, brawny hero when he is constantly pulling her out of scrapes and she does nothing but rile him? Now her father is trying to sell her to the highest bidder in order to pay off his gambling debts. Worse, he has squandered not only her dowry but the inheritance she received from her grandmother, so she hasn't the means to run away. When Octavian proposes a marriage of convenience to help her out, she accepts. Octavian deserves everything and she comes to him with nothing. Can her heart alone ever be enough? Or will their marriage always be make-believe?
