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. . . .
