Meet the Blackthorn brothers—Three unrepentant scoundrels infamous for being mad, bad and perilous to love

Charming, wealthy and wickedly handsome, Oliver "Beau" Blackthorn has it all…except revenge on the enemy he can't forget. Now the opportunity for retribution has fallen into his hands. But his success hinges on Lady Chelsea Mills-Beckman—the one woman with the power to distract him from his quest.

Desperate to escape her family's control, Lady Chelsea seizes the chance to run off with the notorious eldest Blackthorn brother, knowing she's only a pawn in his game. But as Beau draws her deep into a world of intrigue, danger and explosive passion, does she dare hope he'll choose love over vengeance?

Review:

"Michaels (The Secrets of the Heart) launches the Blackthorn Brothers series with a harrowing romantic adventure. In Regency-era London, Lady Chelsea Mills-Beckman fears that her newly pious brother will force her to marry Rev. Francis Flotley. Knowing that Oliver 'Beau' Blackthorn holds a grudge against her brother, who branded him a bastard and destroyed his relationship with Chelsea's sister, Chelsea suggests that Beau elope with her to Scotland, saving her from the minister and getting his revenge in one fell swoop. Their difficult travels together cement their proposed union both emotionally and physically. Beau is reluctant to let Chelsea marry him and become a social outcast, but Chelsea's stalwart, unflappable nature wins him over. The fast-paced story is carried by extremely realistic characters whose hidden depths are gradually revealed, with no one portrayed as wholly good or evil. (Aug.)"
