Lilah Appleton’s prospects are looking dim. With one last chance to find a titled husband before she’s forced to wed her wretched cousin, she must make this Season count. Plain, forgettable Lilah must become the Season’s Original. Desperate, she seeks help from the devilishly charming, untitled, and thoroughly unsuitable Jack Marlowe. All she must do now is resist the tempting rogue…
Bastard son and self-made man, Jack Marlowe loathes the aristocracy. When he meets Lilah, he expects her to be like all the other greedy husband-hunters. But she’s far more dangerous.

When Lilah becomes the belle of the ball, Jack realizes he may lose her forever—unless he can take a chance on love and claim his debutante…
Review copy provided for an honest review
The Debutante Is Mine is the first book I have read by Vivienne Lorret and I loved every moment of it! There is something satisfying about reading a new-to-me author and walking away with a smile. I liked this story from page one… only to have fallen in love with it by the end!
Lilah Appleton is a kind and funny heroine. She is stronger than anyone thinks, including herself. Faced with having to save her family’s name, Lilah is determined to find a way out of her situation. Thankfully, she does in spite of her horrific family.
Mr. Jack Marlowe. How could you not fall in love with him? He is the perfect bad boy of the time and I adore him. There was such a beautiful symmetry to this couple. I was so excited when they figured out that they loved each other.
I enjoyed this story very much. The writing was great. The plot flowed perfectly. I’m looking forward to more books on the secondary characters. I highly recommend this book. So much so, that I’m going to check out the rest of this author’s backlist.
If you like a lovely historical romance, you’ll love this book. I simply can’t wait to slip into Miss Lorret’s “The Seasons Originals” world again.
