“Riveting, sensual, and intelligent . . . romance readers need this splendid book!” —USA Today bestselling author Vanessa Kelly
A mean girl reformed . . .
Once the reigning beauty of her social set, Celia—whom the newspapers dubbed Lady Infamous—has fallen on hard times and is practically destitute, her reputation in shreds. When Celia is forced to attend a society wedding as a companion to an elderly guest, she must confront the clique she once commanded; the gentleman she'd once hoped to marry—who is now wed to a girl Celia relentlessly taunted; and the powerful man who ruined her life a decade before—and is threatening to do so again. . . .
A hero transformed . . .
Then there is Richard, the studious boy Celia used to ridicule, who is now gorgeous, wealthy, and more-than-a-little famous. As a youth, Richard was infatuated with Celia. He still seems intrigued, but Celia has acquired a shocking secret along with her hard-won humility. Will it put an end to the love blossoming between them? Does she have the courage to find out?

“An incredibly emotional story of redemption and finding a new path when past sins come back to haunt, Infamous is a tale filled with angst, regrets, attraction, possibilities and triumph. . . and love. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves an 'old school', lush historical romance. Minerva Spencer never disappoints!”
—USA Today bestselling author Terri Brisbin
"Infamous is Minerva Spencer at her best; she takes an 'unlikeable heroine' and slowly chips away at her many layers as the lushly-written story progresses, until the reader can't help but cheer for her. Celia and Richard's journey to an HEA is immensely satisfying because it is so hard won."
—Liana De la Rosa, author of the Once Upon a Scandal series
"Minerva Spencer has knocked it out of the park again with her latest, Infamous. Weaving a spellbinding tale of romance and redemption, that will hook you from the first page and won't let you go until the end, Infamous is one not to be missed! With characters so intriguingly flawed, you can't help but be drawn to them, Minerva creates a story that will stay with you well after you finish the last page. Spencer is a romance author superstar in the making!"
