The only obstacle is his intended's older sister, Kate Sheffield - the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom.

When Sylvester, the Duke of Salford, first meets Phoebe Marlow, he finds her dull and insipid. She thinks he is insufferably arrogant. But when a series of unforeseen events leads them to be stranded together in a lonely country inn, they are both forced to reassess their hastily formed opinions, and they begin to discover a new-found liking and respect for each other. But what Sylvester doesn’t know is that Phoebe is about to publish a novel - a novel in which all London will recognize him as the villainous ‘Count Ugolino’

Biweekly marriage proposals from men who can't see beyond her (admittedly breathtaking) looks are starting to get on Lady Clara Fairfax's nerves. Desperate to be something more than ornamental, she escapes to her favorite charity. When a child is in trouble, she turns to tall, dark, and annoying barrister Oliver Radford.

Miss Cecily Hurston would much rather explore the antiquities of Egypt than the uncharted territory of marriage. But the rules of her father's exclusive academic society forbid her entrance unless she weds one of its members. To clear her ailing father's name of a scandalous rumor, Cecily needs to gain admission into the Egyptian Club-and is willing to marry any old dullard to do it. Lucas Dalton, Duke of Winterson, is anything but dull.

Audie Award, Humor, 2016. In Furiously Happy, number-one New York Times best-selling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea. But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.

Since you are reading this you should know that yes! I am a bit crazy... And this book will if you let it find joy and happiness in our own personal struggles. I realize that it's ok not no have it all together and feel overwhelmed and want to just hide under my blanket for days .. It's a funny, no hilarious book and I loved every word of it. Ps. I recently bought another copy for my daughter who is the happiest person and very innocent I made her promise that any ? She will come and ask. And she did ... And it was a great embarrassing moment 😋🍀 enjoy! Also is narrated by the author and I could not have it in any other way !
