wonder what her life might have been had she been born a

For the first time in a decade, the Averleys have returned

the Averley name—but it would mean giving up her one true
love . . . someone she could never persuade her father to
Sumptuous and enticing, the first novel in the At Somerton
series introduces two worlds, utterly different yet
entangled, where ruthless ambition, forbidden attraction,
and unspoken dreams are hidden behind dutiful smiles and
glittering jewels. All those secrets are waiting . . . at
