Lady of Desire
Impetuous beauty Lady Jacinda Knight is the daughter of a notorious woman. All her life Jacinda has been aware that the eyes of the ton are upon her - waiting for her to follow in her disgraced mother's footsteps. Now - faced with the prospect of an arranged and loveless marriage - Jacinda may well be about to prove her critics right.
Running from her fate, Jacinda finds herself alone with, and attracted to, Billy Blade, the notorious leader of a band of thieves and only just escapes the experience with her reputation intact. But Billy is no ordinary criminal, having turned his back on the privilege and power of his tyrannical fathe years before. But Jacinda makes him contemplate the unthinkable - returning to the civilised world to reclaim his title.
Driven to uncover the truth about the death of the woman he loved, the Duke of Hawkscliffe will go to any lengths to unmask a murderer. Even if is means engaging in a scandalous affair with London's most provocative courtesan, Belinda Hamilton.
Bel has used her intelligence and wit to charm the city's titled gentlemen while struggling to put the pieces of her life back together.
She needs a protector, so she accepts Hawkcliffe's invitation to become his mistress in name only. He asks nothing of her body, but seeks her help in snaring the same man who shattered her virtue.
Together they tempt the unforgiving wrath of Society - until their risky charade turns into a dangerous attraction, and Bel must make a devastating decision that could ruin her last chance at love.
