BY CANDLELIGHT, SHE LURES HIM . . .
Glittering court socialites and underworld cutpurses alike know that Adrian Ferrers, Earl of Rivenham, is the most dangerous man in London. Rivenham will let nothing—not the deepening shadow of war, nor the growing darkness within him—interfere with his ambition to restore his family to its former glory. But when tasked by the king to uncover a traitor, he discovers instead a conspiracy—and a woman whose courage awakens terrible temptations. To save her is to risk everything. To love her might cost his life.
AT SWORDPOINT SHE DEFIES HIM . . .
Lady Leonora knows that Rivenham is the devil in beautiful disguise—and that the irresistible tension between them is as unpredictable as the dilemma in which Nora finds herself: held hostage on her own estate by Rivenham and the king’s men. But when war breaks out, Nora has no choice but to place her trust in her dearest enemy—and pray that love does not become the weapon that destroys them both. . . .

MEREDITH DURAN
blames Anne Boleyn for sparking her lifelong obsession with British history (and for convincing her that princely love is no prize if it doesn’t come with a happily-ever-after). She spends her free time collecting old etiquette manuals, guidebooks to nineteenth-century London, and travelogues by intrepid Victorian women. Her five previous novels are published by Pocket Books:
The Duke of Shadows,
which has reached a worldwide audience by being translated into eleven languages and was the winner of the Gather.com First Chapters Romance Writing Competition;
Bound by Your Touch
and its sequel,
Written on Your Skin,
chosen by All About Romance for its first inaugural book club meeting on Twitter;
Wicked Becomes You,
a
Romantic Times
Top Pick included on the
Woman’s World
list of Best Beach Reads for Summer 2010; and
A Lady’s Lesson in Scandal,
also a
Romantic Times
Top Pick as well as a Desert Isle Keeper for All About Romance.
