Historical romance

To review

Cleopatra was sure of herself, and did what she wanted. She was an heiress, even if by a way one should not talk about, toilets!

Jacob is an American looking for investments. Too rugged and uncut to be a real gentleman according to some of the ton. Even if he is an Astor.

They soon butt heads, and start the silliest competition. I wish I could have seen it, listening to him looking like a peacock is not the same thing. He must have looked amazing.

He really goes in for what she wants, and who can say no to that.

Good narration that made this into a fun listen.

Miss Cleopatra Lewis is about to be launched in society by her aristocratic grandfather. But since she has no intention of marrying, she visits a costume emporium specifically to order unflattering dresses guaranteed to put off any prospective suitors.

Powerful and charismatic Jacob Astor Addison is in London, acquiring businesses to add to his theatrical holdings in America—as well as buying an emerald for a young lady back in Boston. He's furious when a she-devil masquerading as an English lady steals Quimby's Costume Emporium from under his nose.

Jake strikes a devil's bargain, offering to design her “wallflower wardrobe” and giving Cleo the chance to design his. Cleo can't resist the fun of clothing the rough-hewn American in feathers and flowers. And somehow in the middle of their lively competition, Jake becomes her closest friend.

It isn't until Cleo becomes the toast of all society that Jake realizes she's stolen his fiercely guarded heart. But unlike the noblemen at her feet, he doesn't belong in her refined and cultured world.

Caught between the demands of honor and desire, Jake would give up everything to be with the woman he loves—if she'll have him!
