The cover for debut novel DON'T WANT YOU LIKE A BEST FRIEND: Two Victorian debutantes, one brunette in a green and creme dress, one taller and blonde in a gold dress, stand slyly holding hands in front of a silhouetted purple crowd of partygoers, in front of deep coral windows. Author: Emma R. Alban. Blurb at top of page: "Top-tier wit, spice, and swoons!" - Evie Dunmore.

January 9th, 2024

A swoon-worthy debut queer Victorian romance in which two debutantes distract themselves from having to seek husbands by setting up their widowed parents, and instead find their perfect match in each other—the lesbian Bridgerton/Parent Trap you never knew you needed!
