A Civil Contract
by Georgette Heyer




Overview -

Georgette Heyer, the bestselling Queen of Regency Romance, brings her extraordinary plots and characterizations to an unexpected and delightful marriage of convenience love story.

Can the wrong bride become the perfect wife?

Adam Deveril, the new Viscount Lynton, is madly in love with the beautiful Julia Oversley. But he has returned from the Peninsular War to find his family on the brink of ruin and his ancestral home mortgaged to the hilt. He has little choice when he is introduced to Mr. Jonathan Chawleigh, a City man of apparently unlimited wealth and no social ambitions for himself--but with his eyes firmly fixed on a suitable match for his only daughter, the quiet and decidedly plain Jenny Chawleigh.

Praise for Georgette Heyer:
Georgette Heyer was one of the great protagonists of the historical novel in the post-war golden age of the form. Her regency romances are delightful light reading, and her historical novels such as The Spanish Bride and An Infamous Army demonstrate how fiction and history can work together to make a valuable literary form.--Philippa Gregory, bestselling author
A five-star job of sheerly delightful romance writing.--Chicago Tribune
