About the Author
Emma R. Alban is an author and screenwriter. She is the author of Don't Want You Like a Best Friend and You're the Problem, It's You, two novels in the Mischief & Matchmaking gay romance series.

"Emma R. Alban is a fresh, distinct new voice in the genre and her debut gives us all the top tier wit, spice, and swoons we love in a historical romance. One to watch!" -- Evie Dunmore, USA Today bestselling author of Bringing Down the Duke

"Sweet, angsty, and ingeniously subversive, Don't Want You Like a Best Friend will have you turning the pages and rooting for Beth and Gwen to finally get the happy-ever-after they both deserve. A delightfully refreshing historical romance!" -- Amalie Howard, USA Today bestselling author

"Equal parts swoony, nail-bitingly emotional, and sizzling, Don't Want You Like a Best Friend sweeps readers off their feet in a wholly new and exhilarating dance. With beautifully rendered setting, whip-smart banter, and a cast of characters that are so easy to love, Alban cements herself as an instant voice to watch in queer romance." -- Carlyn Greenwald, author of Sizzle Reel

"[A] witty, complex slow burn.... [that is] lightly spicy and remarkably intense.... A stunning Sapphic Victorian romance from an author to watch." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"With an engaging plot that offers a deft nod to The Parent Trap, Alban's gracefully written and keenly witty romance debut perfectly encapsulates all the hunger, heartbreak, and hope involved in falling in love for the first time. The start to the Mischief & Matchmaking series is an absolute delight." -- Booklist (starred review)

"For readers who want tenderness, not trauma, in their queer period fiction, this will hit the spot." -- Publishers Weekly

"Alban's debut is a disarmingly sweet and well-written story that promises two romances for the price of one. This has wide appeal and is recommended for readers who enjoy sapphic stories, new-adult fiction, or historical romance." -- Library Journal
