A Practical Arrangement

Okay, historical romance fans, Nadja Notariani has a new book out. Check it out. Isn't it a beautiful cover?


Miss Evangeline Grey, intelligent and sensible, has no desire to marry, her reluctance born from the dire warnings of her overly emotional mother.  Her father has other ideas, however, and decrees that unless she weds by the spring, he will choose a husband for her.  

Prim and proper Evangeline accepts her father's issue with little more than mild alarm.  Knowing herself plain of face and sharp of tongue, she believes herself capable of warding off any perspective suitor.  Her plan goes awry when the scandalous seducer, Mr. Thomas Masterson, visits her family's home, for Thomas has learned that he must procure a wife to receive his full inheritance.  

When he discovers Evangeline's predicament matches his own, Thomas determines to orchestrate a practical arrangement.  A war of wit and word results, and Thomas finds himself ever more beguiled by the soft heart he discovers under Miss Grey's stern, inhibited exterior.  Patiently, he endeavors to gain her respect and awaken her passions.  As tenuous trust blooms between the rake and the reluctant, unfortunate events – and Thomas' past reputation – threaten to destroy the peace and happiness he has found within the bonds of his Practical Arrangement.

I wanted to wait until the book went live to share the cover and blurb.  As always, be a pal and Like the book on the Amazon page and click or add tags. This helps the book show up on Amazon's algorithms.

As a matter of fact, let's help each other out right now. If you leave a comment for Nadja, include the link to your book(s) on Amazon.

Make sure to like and tag Nadja's book (and mine!) and I will do the same for you.

That sounds like a fun read. Already the tension between the two has me wanting to know how they're going to dance around the inevitable. :)

I liked all of Nadja's (had already liked yours) but I don't understand the whole tag thing.

Linda: Thank you for Liking our books.

Tagging is weird. Basically you either click on the existing tags if you agree with them or add new tags that you think describes the book. It's supposed to help in the way Amazon lists the book.

Does it work?

Your guess is as good as mine.

You are amazingly prolific!
