Though June weddings aren’t as popular as they used to be, June is still the premier month for brides. In honor of that tradition, this month Julia offers two readers the chance to win a copy of my marriage-of-convenience story, CONVENIENT PROPOSAL TO THE LADY.

Though he has a rakish reputation himself, Parliamentarian Ben Tawny draws the line at enticing unmarried ladies of quality. So when he overhears a pernicious plot by a licentious lord to get back at a rival by ruining his innocent sister, he feels compelled to journey to the house party the lady is attending and warn her—even though she may not believe him.

What he doesn’t expect is to feel a strong, instant attraction to the lady. After her skeptical reception of his news, Ben tells himself he’s only completing his mission by remaining nearby until she has time to judge the truth for herself. When the trap set by her would-be seducer ends up ensnaring him instead, he knows he must make the proposal honor demands.

Wary of tyrannical men like her father and brother, Lady Alyssa shocks everyone by refusing him. Interested only in pursuing her passion for painting, she doesn’t care if her reputation is ruined. Until, to save her from the retribution of her angry father, Ben makes her a proposal she can’t refuse. But can a union two reluctant souls begin out of duty transform itself into a love match?
