Fiona McTavish is an engineer, a chemist, a rebel--and no one's idea of a proper lady. She prefers breeches to ballrooms, but her new invention--matches--will surely turn as many heads. There's just a little matter of her being arrested for a crime she didn't commit. And the only person she can turn to for help is the man who broke her heart years ago.

Edward Stirling, Duke of Wildeforde, will do anything to restore his family's name and put his father's scandalous death behind them. But when Fiona needs his help getting released from prison, he can't deny her--even though it means she must live with him as a condition of her freedom. With the desire between them rekindling as fast as the gossip about their arrangement is spreading among the ton , Edward will have to choose what matters most to him--his reputation or his heart.

Booklist Review: "While attending a political protest in London disguised as "Finley" McTavish, engineer and chemist Fiona McTavish ends up cooling her heels in prison due to her less than accurate aim with a tomato. Unfortunately, the only one who can spring Fiona from jail is Edward Stirling, duke of Wildeforde, who five years earlier professed his undying love for Fiona only to later break things off with her via a letter. Now, as part of the terms of her release, "Finley" must reside under Edward's roof until the trial. However, if word gets out about her real identity, it will dash Fiona's hopes of obtaining a patent for her life-changing invention--matches (!)--not to mention engulf Edward in a scandal that will destroy his family's name. After wowing readers with her stellar debut, How to Survive a Scandal (2021), Parish returns with another ingeniously plotted historical romance that brilliantly showcases her flair for nuanced characterization and dryly witty writing while also effectively drawing inspiration from the Regency worlds of business, politics, and science with dazzling results."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A woman is forced to live with the man who broke her heart in Parish's sparkling second Rebels with a Cause Regency (after How to Survive a Scandal). When chemist and political firebrand Fiona McTavish--disguised as a man and calling herself Finley--is arrested during a protest, Edward Stirling, Duke of Wildeforde and the man she once thought she could love, comes to her rescue, knowing her true identity. Still bitter over Edward's betrayal five years earlier, Fiona is outraged when the magistrate only frees "Finley" from jail on the condition that he reside with Edward for the month until his trial. To avoid the scandal that would arise from a man and woman living together unmarried, Edward and Fiona must keep up her Finley ruse--a task that's even more complicated when Edward's family shows up for a long visit. There's still plenty of spark between the reunited lovers, but Edward's high-handedness and Fiona's stubbornness get in their way--as does Edward's domineering mother, who insists on finding him a suitable bride. These sparring hearts are utterly convincing, and the deception wonderfully raises the stakes on their torrid affair. Readers will be eager for more. Agent: Rebecca Strauss, DeFiore & Co. (Jan.)"
