At the end of The Dragon's Bride, the heroine's brother, David Kerslake, was left with two inherited burdens -- the role of Captain Drake, leader of the smugglers on the south coast of Devon, and Earl of Wyvern, who should support law and order. To make matters worse, the earldom is broke. He sets out to find a richly-dowered bride who'll be too feather-witted to realize his secrets.
He chooses merchant's daughter Lucinda Potter, but soon discovers she's not at all the bride he needs, even though she's everything he desires. Lucy knows she should be wary of the mysterious and dangerous lord, but the power of love might overule her usual good sense.
"Beverley, with her masterful writing and keen knowledge of the Regency, sets the tone for a new novel in the Rogues series. With her ability to build sexual tension and emotional intensity into a lively story, she combines dynamic characters with a secret, smugglers, and a cast of secondary characters, including a few of those wickedly handsome rogues from previous novels to round out the plot. Simply savor this read."
"Scenes set in both London and Devonshire are handled with perfect aplomb, and the chemistry Beverley brews up between David and Lucy is pure passion." -- Booklist
