"Both flirty and intense, and combining a luxury fashion setting with the English aristocracy, this love story will elicit many a contented sigh among romance fans."--Kirkus
To woo this American woman, this British aristocrat is going to have to take a walk in her shoes...
With paparazzi nipping at his heels, Devon Heyworth, rakish brother of the Duke of Northrop, spends his whole life hiding his intelligence and flaunting his playboy persona. Fast cars and faster women give the tabloids plenty to talk about.
American entrepreneur Sarah James is singularly unimpressed with "The Earl" when she meets him at a wedding. But she's made quite an impression on him. When he pursues her all the way across the pond, he discovers that Miss James has no intention of being won over by glitz and glamor--she's got real issues to deal with, and the last thing she needs is larger-than-life royalty mucking about her business...

In Mulry’s sweet follow-up to A Royal Pain, a British peer falls hard for an American businesswoman. Devon Heyworth is the younger brother of Max, the Duke of Northrop. He meets entrepreneur Sarah James at Max’s wedding in England, where she’s the maid of honor. While instant mutual lust ensues, Sarah makes it clear to Devon that their whirlwind romantic weekend is a onetime “utterly delightful, fabulously sexy, wonderful fling.” But they can’t forget each other, and when Devon travels to Chicago for business, he and Sarah reconnect. Misunderstandings thwart their budding romance, and Devon and Sarah’s globetrotting lifestyle adds a modern fairy-tale element. As Sarah reveals her insecurity about meeting her father’s expectations while succeeding as an independent woman, Devon proves that his playboy exterior hides both smarts and heart. The romantic tension entices the reader from the very first page and never flags. Agent: Allison Hunter, Inkwell Management. (July)
