From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Royal comes the first novel in her beloved series featuring the "outrageously funny, loyal, compassionate, and unconventional" Chase family.

Descended from generations of jewelers, Amethyst Goldsmith loves her craft nearly as much as she loves her family. But she hates that her wedding is mere days away. Amy is promised to her father's small-minded apprentice, the last man on earth she could ever love, honor, or especially obey. But the date is set, the dress is ordered, and there's no way out-until the devastating Great Fire of 1666 sweeps through London, shattering her workaday world and recasting her fate...

Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, doesn't believe in fate. He believes in hard work and securing his family's future, which means marrying the wealthy, high-born Lady Priscilla Snobs-er, Hobbs. When he rescues a lowly jeweler's daughter from the inferno, he's only taking pity on a broken young woman. But as the pieces begin to mend, Amy emerges. Beautiful, passionate, playful Amy, who maddeningly captures his family's hearts. Soon Colin fears that if he lets his guard down for even a moment, he might find his own heart held hostage as well...

Snowed in together at empty, crumbling Greystone Castle, an earl and a common girl can't help surrendering to desire. But when the dream is over and reality catches up with them, can they find a way to make their two worlds one?
