Wanton Angel

A Blackthorne Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



Allowed to run wild in the Georgia backwoods with her brothers and Creek Indian cousins, Beth Blackthorne has no desire to do her duty as daughter of a wealthy planter by making a suitable marriage. She prefers honing her skills with a paint brush to developing her skills on the ballroom floor. Mentored by a wealthy Italian noblewoman, she pursues her dream in Naples' glamorous art colony.


Second son of an earl, Derrick Jamison appears to be just another charming English wastrel, basking under the warm Neapolitan sun. Not even his family, who have disowned him, know he is a spy sent to watch the exiled Napoleon. Although strongly attracted to the beautiful American artist, Derrick must leave Beth behind to warn the Duke of Wellington when the emperor escapes from Elba. 


After they are reunited, Beth’s father arrives, demanding that Derrick marry Beth. Understand his duty, he agrees to the forced match. Just as they begin to discover love, he inherits his deceased brother’s title. In Regency London, Derrick's scandalous American wife feels trapped in a gilded cage. Intent on restoring his family’s honor, Derrick fears Beth will never be a proper countess. Lovers by night, antagonists by day, they are caught between duty and desire until a treacherous enemy sets a far more dangerous trap where their love is put to the ultimate test.

Review quotes:

"Shirl Henke takes readers on a whirlwind adventure remininiscent of those long and lush old fashioned historical romances of the '70s."
Kathe Robin

"Shirl Henke knows how to spin a heated tale that Regency fans will enjoy…Non-stop action until the final safe kiss."
Harriet Klausner

"Wanton Angel had a little of everything...spies, harems, Naples, America and England. Many twists and turns, a good and quick read."
Beverly Vicil, Thriftbooks
