This new novel is delightful, vintage Beverley, who continues her Rogue series with a fast-paced, unforgettable, wickedly sensual romance. With her talent for intelligent plotting, finely tuned dialogue and heartwarming emotions, she brings readers a tale of bravery, honor, trust and the magic of love.

War hero Horatio Cave, Viscount Darien, comes from a family known for scandal and violence. He
sets out to obtain respectability and
entry into society. With her brother accused of cowardice at Waterloo, Lady Thea Debenham will do anything to clear his name, and Darien is the one person who can vindicate him.

But Darien has more in store for Thea, who leads a correct and dull life, until this dangerous man brings out a desire and a passion for something different. He is an honorable gentleman, and she soon begins to fall in love with him. When someone tries to destroy Darien by harming Thea, the violent side of him -- which he called upon to survive during the war -- comes through again to save the woman he loves. But at what cost?
