In the first novel of Maya Rodale's stunning new series, an American heiress must learn to navigate London society and an infuriatingly irresistible rake . . .
Lord Darcy is the quintessential Englishman: wealthy, titled, impossibly proper, and horrified that a pack of Americans has inherited one of England's most respected dukedoms. But his manners, his infamous self-restraint, and his better judgment fly out the window when he finds himself with the maddening American girl next door.
Lady Bridget Cavendish has grand—but thwarted—plans to become a Perfect Lady and take the haute ton by storm. In her diary, Bridget records her disastrous attempts to assimilate into London high society, her adoration of the handsome rogue next door, her disdain for the Dreadful Lord Darcy, and some truly scandalous secrets that could ruin them all.
It was loathing at first sight for Lady Bridget and Lord Darcy. But their paths keep crossing . . . and somehow involve kissing. When Lady Bridget's diary goes missing, both Darcy and Bridget must decide what matters most of all—a sterling reputation or a perfectly imperfect love.

Praise For Lady Bridget's Diary: Keeping Up with the Cavendishes…
— Publishers Weekly
“Secrets, scandal, and a spiteful competitor add spice to this clever lark... an excellent start to a promising series.
— Library Journal
“If Helen Fielding wrote a Regency version of Bridget Jones’s Diary, it would be Rodale’s delightful and poignant series starter. For everyone who’s felt a bit awkward and out of place, Rodale’s novel will hit a chord and resonate long after the wonderfully satisfying conclusion.”
