"Meara Platt has created an out-of-order sort of series revolving around the Farthingale daughters: Lily, Dillie, Daisy, Rose, and our heroine, Laurel. Set in the Mayfair District of London in the early 1800s, this historical series follows the lively sisters who refuse to be bound to husbands who don't love them. This latest installment has the elements that fans have come to cherish:passion, love, a bit of joviality, and a lot of steamy kisses! A return trip to visit the Farthingale clan is always a welcome treat full of interesting surprises."

A Midsummer's Kiss

Sometimes love happens at the most unexpected times and in the most unexpected places. Sometimes it quietly sneaks up on you, and sometimes it knocks you over on a London street, just as it happens to Lord Graelem Dayne when Laurel Farthingale's horse runs him over and breaks his leg. Graelem has until Midsummer's Day, a mere thirty days away to find a wife or lose a large inheritance, so when a remorseful Laurel begs his forgiveness and promises to do anything, anything for him, he takes her up on that promise and insists that she marry him.

Laurel Farthingale has no intention of becoming Graelem Dayne's biddable bride and is furious that he's tricked her into a betrothal. She plans to marry another, her long-time friend and childhood infatuation who is now in London to propose to her, for she's a Farthingale and everyone knows that Farthingales only marry for love. But as she comes to know Graelem, she realizes that he may very well be the man she's destined to love. Can he ever love her above his desire to secure his baronial fortune?

What reviewers are saying...

"A wonderful tale of people who are too stubborn to admit they've fallen in love. Fun, humorous, and full of sparks."

"Laurel & Graelem's story is fun, humorous, and genuine."

"Fast paced dialog, with plenty of humor and sexual tension. This could be the best of the series."
