The third book in New York Times bestselling author Julia London’s sparkling A Royal Match series is a fun, flirty reverse Cyrano love story with a bookish heroine and a shy European viscount set in Victorian England.

Next to the season’s newest diamond, Harriet (Hattie) Woodchurch feels like a plain Jane. But that’s of no concern. Harriet’s plan for her future is to earn enough to live in a cottage in the woods with dogs and cats—far, far away from her embarrassing family.

That is until a shy European viscount arrives in London. While his spoken English is impeccable, his writing is less fluent. The ton is eager to meet the bachelor viscount, and soon the invitations flood in. If he’s serious about succeeding in the marriage mart, Mateo needs a correspondence secretary.

Hattie is recommended, due to her way with words and perfect penmanship, and the two bond over books and the matchmaker’s list of eligible ladies. But when Hattie’s friend Flora becomes smitten with the viscount, things get complicated. To help her, Hattie feeds her information about Mateo’s interests. Things turn around and soon Flora appears on track to become his bride. Yet for Mateo, something’s not quite right. Conversation with Flora isn’t as easy and intelligent as it is with Hattie…
