Grumpy meets sunshine in this charming tale featuring a haughty businessman and the headstrong event planner who steals his heart.

Delia Stratham is a sophisticated, thoroughly modern woman who often flouts convention. Despite being well-born with plenty of money, she loves working at London's luxurious Savoy Hotel, coming up with ideas for the venue's lavish entertainments and then procuring whatever is needed to transform them into reality. Earning her own living planning the lavish banquets, balls, and parties for which the Savoy is famous gives her a satisfaction that none of her three marriages could—and she has no intention of giving it up.

But when fraud is uncovered at the Savoy, ruthless hotel magnate Simon Hayden becomes a major investor and vows to clean up the corruption and fire anyone responsible for the thefts. But is the beautiful, beguiling Delia stealing from the hotel, or is it just Simon’s heart she's running off with?


  • “The best in historical romance!”
    Julia Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of the Bridgerton series
  • "Packed with chemistry and fun, this is a fairy tale treat.”
    Publishers Weekly, Starred Review, on Bookshop Cinderella
  • "It has been a while since Guhrke’s last superbly written historical romance, but her latest artfully constructed literary confection is well worth the wait. George Bernard Shaw himself would appreciate Guhrke’s clever riff on his classic, Pygmalion, not to mention her sprightly prose and sparkling, champagne-fizzy wit."
    Booklist, Starred Review, on Bookshop Cinderella
  • "A promising start to a cheery new Victorian romance series."
    Kirkus on Bookshop Cinderella
