Publisher's Summary

She needs a champion. He needs one less person to worry about.

Selena Lockhart comes with neither fortune nor connections, and she knows better than to expect society to give her a welcome — especially after her father gambled away his fortune, precipitating the family’s sudden fall from grace and Selena’s betrothed to break off the engagement. It therefore comes as no surprise that her new neighbor, Sir Lucius, treats her with disdain. Why should he look beyond appearances when her own promises so little? 

Sir Lucius Clavering is not married, but he may as well be, considering he is expected to escort his widowed mother to watering holes, round out the numbers at his married sister’s dinners, and come to the aid of his scapegrace younger siblings. It doesn’t help that single women and matchmaking mamas jostle each other for his face, fortune, and title so that he’s left without a moment’s peace. 

When Selena shows up at Lucius’s doorstep looking for help, he is sure it’s another ploy aimed at cutting up his prized bachelor existence. Although his prejudice does not last long, Lucius fears his first reaction might have ruined his chances with her. How can he save her from society’s teeth when she continues to hold him at arm’s length?

Stevie Zimmerman is an automatic purchase....

.... for me. If it’s my genre of the moment and the description is even half entertaining I buy it! In this case it was well worth it. No spies or sex or horrible scenes, just a good regency romance narrated by one of my favorites! If you remember it’s a romance and don’t take it too seriously you can’t go wrong here.

** 5 Stars **

Stevie Zimmerman’s narration paired with Jennie Goutet’s writing makes for the perfect combination.

In this first instalment of ‘Clavering Chronicles’, we are introduced to Miss Selena Lockhart and Sir Lucius Clavering.

A highly unconventional meeting leads to mutual trust and admiration, despite past scandal and reputation. Is there any hope of a happily ever after for either of them? And is it possible that they can find it in each other?

This sweet and clean Regency romance is suitable for teenage readers and up.
