Glittering Court

Glittering Court ...

A runaway countess escapes an arranged marriage through a business that brings brides to the most eligible bachelors of the New World of Adoria. The Countess of Rothford descends from one of Osfrid's noblest bloodlines, but her family's financial desperation leads her grandmother to arrange a marriage for her with a dull, itchy noble whose own grandmother can't wait to control her life. Opportunity knocks when Ada, a former attendant, is selected for the Glittering Court, an intensive finishing school that furnishes brides to the New World's new elites. Ada doesn't want to go, so the countess goes instead, taking both the name Adelaide and Ada's place. Fish-out-of-water Adelaide's an expert at the niceties the school teaches yet comically incompetent at basic commoner skills; if she fails to fit in, she'll be discovered and sent back home. - Kirkus

"Southern charm meets My Fair Lady [...] romantics will love this book." —School Library Connection, starred review

“In a refreshing change to the romance formula...there is a strong feminist element in Adelaide’s narration, and more than meets the eye in terms of plot, character development, and substantive thought." —Booklist
