The Season has finally arrived, filled with the magnificent balls, scandalous gossip, and clandestine romances that every lord and lady in good society has come to expect. But far within the walls of lavish estates and in the dark corners of the city lies a world that the aristocracy dares not touch, with rules and risks that glamour cannot overpower. Yet true love has no boundaries, and heiresses and street thieves alike must use their savvy and strength to create new beginnings and happily-ever-afters. Sometimes luck is enough, but every once in a while, a touch of magic may be needed. Deliciously alluring, these thirteen historical romances from a talented array of YA authors will make even the most cynical heart swoon.show more

Cornocopia of Reviews blog "For those that love historical fiction with a bit of scandal thrown in, this is the anthology for you... I found many of the stories within this book to be fabulous reads... There are characters from across the globe, and love between all genders. If only all books could be that way!"
