Image of Forever a Lord (The Rumor Series)

Marvelle sweeps readers back into her Rumors series as she crafts an emotionally intense love story that heats up the pages. The unconventional characters and depth of storytelling lift this into the realm of “keeper.”

Kidnapped and held captive, Lord Nathaniel Atwood grew up on the mean streets of New York’s Five Points. He learned to fight for everything he wanted, and as the leader of The Forty Thieves, he fights for those too weak to defend themselves. A twist of fate brings him home to England and to the opportunity to reclaim his birthright. Lady Imogene Norwood’s illness has taken her out of the social whirl. She wants to experience life and decides to invest in a boxer — Nathaniel. She invests more than money; she pours her heart and soul into proving to Nathaniel that he is worthy of love. As for Nathaniel, he teaches Imogene the meaning of passion. (HQN, Jan., 380 pp., $7.99)
