The third novel in the Regency world of Katy Moran's Lamorna family. Welcome to Kit's story...

'It's pretty hard to pull off a good Georgette Heyer homage, but Moran makes it look easy' i NewsThe third novel in the thrilling Bridgerton-style Regency world of Katy Moran's wild and dissolute Lamorna family. Welcome to Kit's story...


Clemency Arwenack never dreamed she would be appointed lady-in-waiting to the notorious Princess Royal. A soldier's daughter, Clemency has aristocratic connections that she could quite frankly do without, and catering to the whims of an impetuous heir to the throne is the last thing she wants. Even so, Clemency's ambitious godmother forces her to accept the position. Always a keeper of other people's confidences, Clemency has a secret of her own, and Georgiana, Lady Boscobel, is only too ready to use it against her.

Worse still, the Honourable Lieutenant Colonel Kit Helford is now captain of the royal guard - and so Clemency can't avoid the one childhood friend who might just see through her dangerous web of deceit. Kit Helford is just as wild and handsome as he's always been. And Clemency knows only too well that he's just as much trouble.

'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

Reviews for Scandalous Alchemy

'Full of glamour, gossip and gripping intrigue' * Yours * PRAISE FOR WICKED BY DESIGN AND FALSE LIGHTS: '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 pushes it up several notches - 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' * iNews *
