Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Darius Thorne has learned to use his wit and intelligence to strategize a better life for himself. He is the White Knight amidst the small secret circle of Gentlemen known only as the Jaded. The handsome scholar shields his heart by keeping a studied distance from the world…until he rescues a beautiful woman.

Isabel Netherton isn’t merely a damsel in distress. A high born lady of quality unwilling to be a pawn, she is defiantly escaping an abusive husband. But under Darius’s protection she discovers an unexpected champion--a man who teaches her the power of true desire and what it means to be treated like a queen.

However, the law of the land supports her husband’s cruel claim. It will take all of Darius' wit to keep one step ahead of their enemies and protect Isabel. In a deadly game of chess, Darius must defeat the Black Knight and sacrifice himself for his Ivory Queen or forfeit all.  

Review:

"Bernard's fourth Jaded Gentlemen romance (after Passion Wears Pearls) begins in 1860 Edinburgh, as Isabel Netherton makes a desperate escape from her sadistic husband, Richard, and collapses in scholarly Darius Thorne's garden. With kindness and chess, Darius wins Isabel's wounded heart and tries to free her from her cruel marriage despite draconian Victorian law. Isabel, meanwhile, helps Darius realize he's not condemned to repeat his father's brutality. He simultaneously tries to uncover the mysterious threat facing his friends in the Jaded Gentlemen, a London secret society first formed during the Indian Rebellion. Darius's relationship with Isabel provides the needed sensuality and also proves more compelling than the other plot line, which may confuse readers new to the series. In a gripping conclusion, Darius uses a scholar's weapons and makes a nightmarish odyssey through London brothels to find the key to Isabel's freedom. Agent: Eric Ruben, Ruben Literary Agency."

Synopsis:

New in the Jaded Gentlemen series

When Ashe Blackwell's grandfather challenges him to reform for a single social Season in London-or forfeit his inheritance-the rake agrees to the wager. But Ashe is assigned an unconventional chaperone: Miss Caroline Townsend, a young, independent, well-educated, American woman with beautiful eyes-and no patience for rogues.

Synopsis:

Vengeance doesn't always turn out the way you planned.

First in a sexy new series of erotic passion set in Victorian London

Galen Hawk desires nothing but revenge against the woman who betrayed his dearly departed friend. Instead of mourning the loss of her fiancé, Miss Haley Moreland is merrily celebrating her upcoming nuptials to another man. Now, Galen has one mission: to seduce Miss Moreland and enslave her heart. And when she is completely his, he will destroy her.
