Snowbound with society’s most notorious rake, Ruth Hayden has to use every ounce of her defiant spirit to keep from falling into his arms. But behind his charm, Sir Clayton Powell hides the pain and humiliation of a past betrayal. Recklessly, she seeks to silence the rumor mill—by announcing their engagement. She then wonders how Clayton will take advantage of the situation.

    " This was just an ok Book for me.. I liked the character Ellie...Garrick should have stood up for her sooner but I understand he had to get his uncle.. but like I said It was ok...I probably will read additional books by this author. "

    " Well I go a kick out of this book. A little unbelievable if you ask me in terms of Garrick grabbing Eleanor and kissing her while she robbing him... then the time passing... But overall I can disregard that because come on it's a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria Blacke | 4/1/2012

    " This book was a fun romantic caper. Strong female lead. Loved that she was a highwaywoman who knew her way around swords and horses. Got to love a hero who can seduce a woman with his hands tied...literally! "

    " It was sweet, charming with a little adventure thrown in. Very quick read. "

About the Author

Mary Brendan, instead of going to university, started working as a clerk and then a personal secretary—jobs that provided her with the typing skills she’s needed as a writer. Always a keen reader of historical romance novels, she decided to try her hand at writing a regency novel during her youngest son’s afternoon naps. What started as an indulgence soon developed into a highly enjoyable part-time occupation. Following a good response from readers, a subsequent Regency novel was commissioned and appeared in print the following year. However, throughout her sons’ childhoods, she took a break from writing to assist her husband in his property development and building firms. When her sons were into their late teens, she resumed writing historical romances. She works part-time for a local library, helps her husband run his businesses, and is setting aside time for her primary interest: writing.
