Unfairly blamed for her mother’s sins, Lady Deborah Martin can’t seem to please her father. Then, in standing up for herself, she offends another important man in her life, handsome Lord Foxborough. Treated as little more than a servant, this Regency-era Cinderella has her own plans to make a life on the stage, and if the men disapprove, they’d best watch out!

This is a lighthearted tale in the traditional Regency style of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer—no sex, but plenty of romantic complications and a happy ending.

A love for the books of Jane Austen drew Jacqueline Diamond to the world of the Regency-era romance, and her half-dozen novels in the genre have delighted readers for thirty years. Jackie has gone on to sell novels ranging from mysteries and suspense to paranormal romances and romantic comedies. A former Associated Press reporter in Los Angeles, Jackie has received a career achievement award from Romantic Times magazine and two finalist placements for the RITA Award. For her 101st book, she launched the Safe Harbor Medical mystery series with The Case of the Questionable Quadruplet. To be sure you never miss a sale or a new release, sign up for her free newsletter at her website,

Diamond is the author of A Lady’s Point of View, A Lady of Letters, Lady in Disguise, The Day-Dreaming Lady, and The Forgetful Lady.
