About the Book

Notorious rake Marcus Raleigh, Marquess of Ripley, is gracing the gossip pages for a new reason: the rumors he may have murdered his swindling cousin. His quest for answers regarding his cousin’s death leads him to an incomparable self-declared spinster, and he is—for the first time—beguiled beyond reason. Neither is what the other wants, and yet their intense mutual infatuation is inescapable.

After abandoning her philandering betrothed at the altar, Phoebe Lennox fled from London only to return an heiress who refuses to follow the ton’s rules. She won’t risk a relationship of any kind—until she meets the notorious Marquess of Ripley. Swept into his seductive embrace, her resolve falters in the face of a pleasure she never anticipated. But when the truth about Marcus and the murder come to light, Phoebe could lose everything she holds dear, including a love for all time.

What People Are Saying...

“This is a hot historical romance with independent, strong mined characters.”

– Warrior Women Winmill

“I love the passion between Marcus and Phoebe and not just the steamy bedroom scenes they had, but the passionate nature of their relationship. Their feelings for each other went far past that of just the physical even if they didn’t realize it.”

– DragonRose Books Galore Reviews

“With intriguing adventure and heartstopping romance, Phoebe and Marcus set fire to the senses in their quest to seduce away your heart.”

– Hopeless Romantic 

“I loved Phoebe and Marcus! Whether as individuals or together, they are just wonderful on the page. Their banter was delightful, and watching two people who are determined not to start a relationship do exactly that was a whole lot of fun.”

– Becky on Books….and Quilts

“A chance meeting, undeniable attraction, a wager, witty banter, & a murder/mystery investigation. What more could anyone ask for in a romance?”

– Amazon reader review
