She might look like an angel . . .
The moment orphaned American heiress Titania "Tansy" Danforth arrives on English shores she cuts a swath through Sussex, enslaving hearts and stealing beaux. She knows she's destined for a spectacular titled marriage—but the only man who fascinates her couldn't be more infamous . . . or less interested.
But it takes a devil to know one . . .
A hardened veteran of war and inveterate rogue, Ian Eversea keeps women enthralled, his heart guarded and his options open: why should he succumb to the shackles of marriage when devastating good looks and Eversea charm make seduction so easy? And Heaven has never been hotter!
When Ian is forced to call her on her game, he never dreams the unmasked Tansy— vulnerable, brave, achingly sensual—will tempt him beyond endurance. And fight as he will, this notorious bachelor who stood down enemies on a battlefield might finally surrender his heart . . . and be brought to his knees by love.
About the Author
San Francisco Bay Area native Julie Anne Long set out to be a rock star when she grew up (and she has the guitars and fringed clothing stuffed in the back of her closet to prove it), but writing was always her first love. She began her academic career as a Journalism major, then realized Creative Writing was a better fit for her freewheeling imagination and overdeveloped sense of whimsy.
Still, for years she worked by day in finance, software development, web & graphic design, and marketing and promotions...until the fateful day when playing guitar in dank, sticky clubs by night lost its "charm." Which is when she realized she could incorporate all the best things about being in a band--namely drama, passion and men with unruly hair--into novels, while indulging her love of history and research. Since then, her books have been nominated for numerous awards, including the Romance Writers…
"Julie Anne Long reinvents the historical romance for modern readers, delivering intense, passionate characters and high adventure. Her writing glows." -- Amanda Quick "...classic graceful prose, exceptional dialog, and lively wit..." -- Library Journal "Warm, witty and fabulous!" -- Suzanne Enoch "Long brings these conflicted characters to vivid life in a satisfying, ennobling, and truly memorable story." -- Library Journal The tenderness, sensuality, bright spots of humor and absolutely delightful climax will have readers breathing a deep sigh of contentment. -- Romantic Times BOOKclub, 4 1/2 stars Seemingly total opposites, Tansy and Ian are one of Long's most sympathetic, beautifully revealed couples to date. Watching these two sort out their painful, deep-seated issues and come to terms with their love is an unadulterated pleasure. -- Library Journal (starred review)
