A lady does not smoke cheroot. She does not ride astride. She does not fence or attend duels. She does not fire a pistol, and she never gambles at a gentlemen's club.
Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she's vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she's been missing.
But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile.
If she's not careful, she ll break the most important rule of all the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love.
About the Author
A life-long romance reader, Sarah MacLean wrote her first romance novel on a dare, and never looked back. She is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of historical romances, and the author of a monthly column at The Washington Post celebrating the best of the romance genre. She lives in New York City with her husband, daughter, dog and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels. She loves to hear from readers.
A fan of the genre, Carolyn Morris loves narrating romantic fiction and re-creating the Regency characters of England or more contemporary heroines. For this native Brit, a good cup of tea, a microphone, and a believable protagonist is the perfect formula for a great working day.
