“Corinna” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “The Art of Temptation” by Lauren Royal.
From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

London, 1817

Lady Corinna Chase is a talented painter—who also happens to be a girl. Unfortunately, in London’s art world, that means fewer opportunities and more obstacles. But rebellious Corinna isn’t about to let anything divert her from achieving her dreams. Not even the suspicious behavior of the gorgeous Irishman who’s just moved in next door…

Sean Delaney isn’t who he says he is. Well, he is Sean Delaney, but many people have the impression that he’s John Hamilton, a renowned landscape artist (probably because that’s how he introduced himself). The real John may have blackmailed Sean into the deception, but Sean’s going to have to get himself out of it—or risk spoiling not only his sister’s future, his family’s good name, and the enterprise he built from scratch, but any chance he may have with his lovely new neighbor…

Meanwhile, Corinna's older brother Griffin is helping their cousin Rachael find her father. Rachael is a beauty, but Griffin is wedded to his bachelorhood. Besides, they’re cousins—and though it’s not unusual for cousins to wed, Rachael can’t stomach the thought of marrying even a very distant (and handsome) one like Griffin. Until their search leads them to discover they’re not actually related, after all…
