Desperate to provide for herself and her ailing father, Octavia Morgan takes to the streets of London as a pickpocket. But she chooses the wrong victim-notorious highwayman Lord Nick.

Light-fingered and well-bred Octavia is just what Nick needs. He offers her a proposition which allows her to seek retribution against the men who stole her father's fortune and gives him his revenge for past injustice.

Agreeing to pose as Nick's wife, Olivia enters society as the new Lady Warrick. She is the perfect foil for him with her courage and intellect-and her natural talent at crime. Soon, Octavia cannot envision a life without Nick, but Nick's devastating confession threatens her newfound happiness. Who is this man of many faces?

VANITY is an exceptionally crafted story that will captivate hearts. Ms. Feather proves once more that she shines brightly as a writer of historical romance. Another "keeper." SENSUAL (Jan., 368 pp., $5.99)
