Publisher Description


"Adriana Herrera is once again here to upend any outdated notions of historical romance." —Entertainment Weekly

One last summer. 
For Manuela del Carmen Caceres Galvan, the invitation to show her paintings at the 1889 Exposition Universelle came at the perfect time. Soon to be trapped in a loveless marriage, Manuela has given herself one last summer of freedom—in Paris, with her two best friends. 

One scandalous encounter. 
Cora Kempf Bristol, Duchess of Sundridge, is known for her ruthlessness in business. It's not money she chases, but power. When she sees the opportunity to secure her position among her rivals, she does not hesitate. How difficult could it be to convince the mercurial Miss Caceres Galvan to part with a parcel of land she’s sworn never to sell?

One life-changing bargain.
Tempted by Cora’s offer, Manuela proposes a trade: her beloved land for a summer with the duchess in her corner of Paris. A taste of the wild, carefree world that will soon be out of her reach. What follows thrills and terrifies Cora, igniting desires the duchess long thought dead. As they fill their days indulging in a shared passion for the arts and their nights with dark and delicious deeds, the happiness that seemed impossible moves within reach…though claiming it would cause the greatest scandal Paris has seen in decades.

"...a fun, frothy, feminist voice in historical romance." —New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This had such lush language, as historical fiction usually does. Everything always sounded so beautiful and delicious. And the sex scenes were no different. Though I am always amused by the clever ways they talk about sex in historical settings 😆 our heroines were both strong willed, smart and infuriating at times, which of course made for the perfect tension and chemistry. I really appreciated the nuance of how they both grew and really had to earn that HEA.”
