A rescued rogue . . .
Scandal has rocked the city of London. Colin Eversea, a handsome, reckless unapologetic rogue is sentenced to hang for murder and, inconveniently for him, the only witness to the crime disappears. Then again, throughout history, the Everseas have always managed to cheat fate in style: Colin is snatched from the gallows by a beautiful, clever mercenary.
A captivating captor. . .
Cool-headed, daring Madeleine Greenway is immune to Colin's vaunted charm. Her mission is not to rescue Colin but to kidnap him, and to be paid handsomely for it. But when it becomes clear that whoever wants Colin alive wants Madeline dead, the two become uneasy allies in a deadly race for truth. Together, they'll face great danger—and a passion neither can resist.
Wow, wonderful story!
I loved Colin and Madeleine. They had great chemistry and their story kept me interested and wanting more.
A Fascinating Romance!
Another fascinating romance by this author! It was not as traditional a Regency story as others and that made it even more exciting to read, flicking my pages fast to see what was going to happen next. Colin Eversea cheats the hangman with a daring escape, which was a good thing since he was innocent of the crime that landed him in Newgate Prison. And that started this race of a romance because of the mystery as to who killed and why…and the escape that was facilitated by a lovely mercenary, Madeleine Greenway. The many twists and turns in this romp of a romance kept me glued to the story, ignoring other chores I should have been attending to. It was a wonderful respite from chores and a lovely trip down Pennyroyal’s lanes.
Funny, witty and very entertaining. Read it! Her best book.
