A bashful botanist and a reluctant debutante are about to discover that there may be a science to seduction after all ... London, 1815: Lady Mildred Weller (Eddie to her friends) has few prospects for marriage. If she can't attract the available--though considerably older--Lord Averdale, she may be doomed to spinsterhood. She's even willing to enter into that loveless union, if only to escape her mother's stifling and increasingly desperate dominance. And she may have found the perfect person to help her achieve that goal. Ezekiel Blackwood is a botanist as well as Lord Averdale's nephew and heir. He is also a social disaster. Cross-pollination he understands; the fairer sex not at all. But in Lady Eddie, he discovers a kindred spirit. When she asks for his assistance in assessing Lord Averdale's interest in her, Ezekiel is crushed. But naturally, he thinks, she could never fall in love with someone like him. Ezekiel's matchmaking cousin is only too happy to arrange a discreet rendezvous for their conspiracy--a greenhouse. Of course in such a setting, it's only natural that feelings might begin to bloom ... Includes an exclusive preview of the next Birch Hall Romance, A Gentleman's Guide to Scandal Praise for A Lady's Guide to Ruin "Kimmel's debut adds a new star to the romance galaxy. I loved this book."--Madeline Hunter, New York Times bestselling author "A skillful tale replete with deception, intrigue, and a love that transcends it all. Kimmel writes characters that leap off the page and adventures that leave you breathless."--Anna Randol, author of Sins of a Wicked Princess.
