In a new novel by Lauren Smith, sinister forces are lurking, awaiting the perfect moment to exact their revenge by destroying not only whatever happiness Lucien might find in Horatia Sheridan’s arms, but the lives of those they love.
Horatia Sheridan has been hopelessly in love with Lucien, her
brother’s best friend, ever since he rescued her from the broken remains
of her parents’ wrecked carriage. His reputation as London’s most
notorious rakehell doesn’t frighten her, for under his veneer of cool
authority she has glimpsed a man whose wicked desires inspire her own.
Lucien, Marquess of Rochester, has deliberately nurtured a reputation for debauchery that makes every matchmaking mother of the ton quake with fear. His one secret: he is torn between soul-ripping lust for Horatia and the loyalty he owes her brother.
loyalty is put to the test when an old enemy of the League threatens
Horatia’s life. With Christmas drawing near, he sweeps her away to his
country estate, where he can’t resist granting her one wish—to share his
bed and his heart.
But sinister forces are lurking, awaiting the
perfect moment to exact their revenge by destroying not only the happiness Lucien might find in Horatia’s arms, but the lives of those
they love. Download and start listening now!
