Drawing on her intimate knowledge of the era, Michaels crafts a thrilling, witty adventure/romance that weaves a fascinating “what might have been“ historical backdrop with actual details of the time. To top it off, she includes characters from her previous titles. This truly unforgettable Regency is as much about trust, friendship and the healing power of love as it is about passion.

Haunted by guilt and plagued by his past work for the Crown, Baron Justin Wilde is trapped in Prinny’s web. To earn his pardon he must marry the young, innocent Lady Magdaléna Valentin, half-English, half-Romany, all angel. Outwardly obedient, Alina uses her betrothal as the means to flee her jealous aunt. She is fascinated by him and wants to learn all of his secrets. But love has no time to grow as Alina is the target of a powerful nobleman and Justin must protect her. As they run through the countryside and try to uncover who is behind the plot, love blossoms. Alina exposes Justin’s vulnerability and he falls in love. Their love may be dangerous or his salvation.
