Scandalous Alchemy: A thrilling Regency romance, set in a Bridgerton-style world by Katy Moran
 The Regency Romance Trilogy, 3

Thrilling Regency romance, set against an Outlander-like background of passion and war, this will delight lovers of Poldark and Bridgerton.

1825 Cornwall and France

Clemency Arwenack never dreamed she would be appointed lady-in-waiting to the notorious, headstrong Princess Royal, heir apparent to the English throne. In fact it's the last thing she wants. But Clemency dares not refuse, while her scheming godmother is threatening to expose her deepest secret.

Worse still, Clemency's childhood friend, the Hon Lieutenant Colonel Kit Helford is now captain of the royal guard, charged with escorting the Princess Royal to France. If anyone can see through Clemency's web of deceit, it's Kit – just as wild and handsome as he's always been. And just as much trouble.

The third novel in the Bridgerton-style Regency world of Katy Moran's wild and dissolute Lamorna family. Welcome to Kit and Clemency's story...

'Passionate, smart and action-packed' Sarah Hughes, Guardian
'Lush, dark, utterly real and achingly romantic' Ruth Ware
'An absolute joy of a book. From the wild beauty of Cornwall to the breathless danger of a teetering peace treaty at Fontainebleau, Katy Moran whisks us on a desperately exhilarating dance through scandal, intrigue and treachery. Like all the best balls, I didn't want it to end' Holly Hepburn

'Full of glamour, gossip and gripping intrigue'
'There’s drama and daring-do aplenty in this proper page-turner of a novel, a breathless romp with a gripping plot and well-realised characters (Katy Moran has a particular knack for creating memorable heroines), which would appeal to those who appreciate a contemporary homage to the regency romances of Georgette Heyer, fans of the TV series Bridgerton, anyone pining for Poldark, or simply in need of a good read'
Countryman Magazine

'A thrilling, sexy romp through brilliantly reimagined history. Hester is one of my very favourite heroines and it's probably best not to ask what I'd like to do with Crow... Totally absorbing' Holly Hepburn.

'Sweeping and romantic, with a hero to rival Ross Poldark, Wicked by Design is a fantastic and compelling novel that draws you in and paints a glorious alternative St Petersburg, keeping you hooked until the end' Imogen Edwards-Jones.

'A swashbuckling, sparkling world of a novel [...] with a mad, bad and dangerous to know hero' Suzannah Dunn.

'Excellent writing and characterization... with special mention for Hester: a fizzing-with-life, believable and resourceful heroine if ever there was one' Daily Mail.

'A cross between Georgette Heyer, Dorothy Dunnett and Poldark'
