Madeleine Roux’s next season in Regency England follows a rebellious writer and the man who risks everything to publish her.

In a world where women are expected to be demure and dainty, Margaret Arden would much rather be passionate and daring like the characters in her novel. The idyllic life at Mosely Cottage with her two younger sisters and mother is fine, but Margaret knows there’s so much more to achieve. After a particularly brutal rejection letter from a renowned publisher, Margaret fears the worst; She’ll amount to nothing more than what society expects of her. That’s until her cousin's glamorous wedding masquerade brings her out of her stupor and onto a collision course with scandal, notoriety, and even love.

Captain Bridger Dryden is starting over after years of bloody action fighting for his country. Now home and struggling with all he’s seen and experienced; Bridger is turning to his love of books as a new partner at Dockarty & Dryden publishing. So when he journeys to Pressmore Estate for the wedding of his dearest friend, and stumbles upon loose pages of an astonishing book, Bridger knows he must publish it. But upon meeting the author, Bridger is stunned to discover that he is in fact she, and his publisher has already rejected her.

While Bridger is keen to gain her trust and rescind the initial rejection, Margaret can’t help but be skeptical of his intentions. He may be smart, witty, and handsome, but what does he have to gain from taking such a risk? Sparks fly between the two, just as the wedding of the season starts to descend into chaos when a masked dance leads to a case of mistaken identities. But undeniable chemistry has a way of defying such obstacles. . .
