Melinda Hammond’s latest Regency, A Rational Romance, is superb storytelling at its absolute best! Rich in period detail, intrigue and romance, it’s the perfect book to curl up with on a cold winter’s night!

In 1803, the seventh marquis of Ullenwood, Elliot Malvern is one of the most eligible men in society. He’s rich, extremely good looking and a card player with Lady luck on his side. However, not even Elliot could foresee winning a lady’s hand during a game of cards!

After the death of her parents, Miss Rosamond Beaumarsh had been living with her grandfather and acting as his housekeeper whilst he squandered every single penny on booze and gambling. Now, that he is dead, she is determined to make it on her own and become an independent woman, but Elliot is determined to take responsibility of his new ward and proposes a marriage of convenience.

Rosamond has sworn never to marry. And besides, the Marquis could never find a plain girl like her attractive especially when he has a gorgeous mistress to satisfy his every need.

But Rosamond hasn’t counted on falling in love with her marquis. But does he feel the same?

A Rational Romance is one of the year’s best historical romances! Melinda Hammond is an outstanding writer of romantic fiction who touches the heart and recreates history meticulously.
