ONE WICKED SIN
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
In the second of the Scandalous Women of the Ton stories, Cornick demonstrates her skills by crafting a memorable story of intense emotions, scandals, trust, betrayal and all-encompassing love. She adds two strong protagonists and captivates her fans with a fresh and engrossing tale.
At one time the notorious Lottie Cummings was the darling of the ton. Now divorced, disgraced and disowned by her family, all doors are closed to her except the bawdy house. Her salvation is Ethan Ryder, Baron St. Severin, an Irish soldier of fortune and the illegitimate son of the Duke of Farne. Once one of Napoleon’s best cavalrymen, he’s now a captured prisoner on parole.
Lottie accepts a position as his mistress. With her scandalous past and outrageous behavior she provides a diversion for the conspiracy he is planning. Lottie feels there is something not right about his offer, but she’s sold herself for money and security. They are kindred spirits, survivors with a taste for danger. Neither counts on their arrangement growing into a passionate and loving bond that will be tested by betrayal. (HQN, Nov., 360 pp., $7.99)
