Summary

Epigram Books Fiction Prize 2015 Longlist 
 
Devout Catholic school teacher Annabelle Thong never thought her chastity was a liability – until she runs away to Paris to find Prince Charming. 
 
Enrolling herself at the Sorbonne, she meets the suave Patrick Dudoigt, but he's the one temptation she MUST resist. Annabelle's belief system is challenged on all fronts, and her na?veté is seen as gauche in the City of Love. Guilt and confusion make for dangerous bedfellows, and when her fellow university students enthusiastically combine reading and rioting, Annabelle can't help but wonder if everyone's gone mad – or is it just her?  
 
Annabelle Thong takes a hilarious look at the sparks that fly when East meets West, and the passions these ignite.

    James Cordier is all blue blood and entirely dangerous. He's a master of disguise, a brilliant thief, a first-class lover—all for King and Country—and, by gad, he's so weary of it. His last mission is to "acquire" a packet of incriminating letters from one notorious woman. Then he can return to London and meet sweet-natured heiresses—not adventuresses and fallen women. 
    Francesca Bonnard has weathered heartbreak, scorn, and scandal. She's independent, happy, and definitely fallen; and she's learned that "gentlemen" are more trouble than they're worth. She can also see that her wildly attractive new neighbor is bad news. 
    But as bad as James is, there are others far worse also searching for Francesca's letters. And suddenly nothing is simple—especially the nearly incendiary chemistry between the two most jaded, sinful souls in Europe. And just as suddenly, risking everything may be worth the prize.

    The woman who will one day wear Richard Lynsted's ring will be genteel, dainty, and well-bred. 
    This eliminates Grace MacEachin on all three counts.  A hellion of the first order, the alluring, infuriating woman would be nothing more than a passing temptation to an upstanding gentleman like Richard—if it weren't for the fact that she's trying to blackmail his father! 
    Or, as Grace sees it, trying to get justice—and maybe just the slightest hint of revenge on the family that tore her life asunder when she was just a girl.  And as for Lynsted, well, the stuffy, humorless man wouldn't suffer for time spent in company more exciting than that of his company ledgers. Only when Richard gets Grace alone, she discovers he may know a thing or two about excitement after all . . .

    The only burden heavier than past regrets is to forget them.
    After her father's sudden death, Charlotte Winslow must give up her highborn lifestyle to fend for herself on the outskirts of London. Painting under an assumed name, Charlotte makes just enough to live happily in a humble cottage—just herself and a cat named Rex.
    But her peaceful world is turned upside down when a carriage accident leaves Lord Rexford in her care. The very man who scorned her years before and his meddling mother make themselves comfortable in Charlotte’s small house as he recovers his health and memory. But the longer they stay in her cottage, the more Lord Rexford's thoughts seem to linger on his self-sufficient, no-nonsense host. Could it be that he remembers more than he lets on?
