Bound by Your Touch
Synopses & Reviews
From the exciting new historical author Meredith Duran comes two back-to-back dark and sexy Regency historical novels that follow her thrilling debut The Duke of Shadows.
Lydia Boyce, heroine of Bound by Your Touch, is a spinster with sophisticated interests, for she knows that an unblemished reputation is the only protection in a judgmental world. But when a mysterious forgery threatens to sully her family and her father’s legacy, she finds her only hope for salvation in a man who has no use for the rules of good society—or those who follow them. The Viscount Sanburne is a society darling, but a dark past has left him aimless and uninterested in anything but self-destructive amusement. He has no interest in a bluestocking bent on justice—until she flashes a dimple, and he realizes that corrupting her might prove as pleasurable as scandalizing her does.
A rising star in romance and author of "The Duke of Shadows" returns with a story of love and betrayal, honor and deceit, set in 19th-century London. A bluestocking bent on justice plays a dangerous game of seduction with London's most scandalous viscount. Original.
Silver-tongued Viscount Sanburne is London's favorite scapegrace. Alas, Lydia Boyce has no interest in being charmed. When his latest escapade exposes a plot to ruin her family, she vows to handle it herself, as she always has done. Certainly she requires no help from a too-handsome dilettante whose main achievement is being scandalous. But Sanburne's golden charisma masks a sharper mind and darker history than she realizes. He shocks Lydia by breaking past her prim facade to the woman beneath...and the hidden fire no man has ever recognized. But as she follows him into a world of intrigue, she will learn that the greatest danger lies within — in the shadowy, secret motives of his heart.
About the Author
MEREDITH DURAN was born in the south, raised in the west, and schooled in the east. Always fascinated by English history, she thought when a friend from India invited her home for the holidays that the best part would be the layover in London. Then she stepped off the plane into the sultry heat of a Mumbai spring and realized that all her assumptions about India were completely wrong. Now the veteran of several lengthy trips to both India and England, she is pursuing a doctorate in social sciences—and, of course, writing romance in every spare moment she can find.
