It’s the morning after the night before, and Colin and Marina’s scandal brings everyone back to London and together for the first time since Daphne and Simon’s wedding. But this is not an episode for happy families - everyone is tense AF. At least there’s always ladies’ night...
This episode is brought to you by Vanessa Riley’s new novel An Earl, The Girl, and a Toddler, a sweeping, soapy, and utterly romantic read perfect for fans of historical romance with powerful characters of colour, multicultural communities, and an emphasis on romance and relationship. You can find An Earl, The Girl, and a Toddler (and Vanessa’s first title in the series A Duke, A Lady, and a Baby) wherever you get your books, or visit Vanessa online at vanessariley.com
