The Bride Wore Pearlsby Liz Carlyle
Synopses & Reviews
Beneath the elegant façade of Victorian high society, the mysterious men of the St. James Society play only by rules of danger and desire.
Rance Welham, the Earl of Lazonby, has survived scandal and disgrace, even evading the Queens justice at the end of a hangmans rope. Now hes about to gamble everything on something far more dangerous—desire.
An exotic and elegant beauty, Lady Anisha Stafford fled her native India to seek refuge within Londons secretive St. James Society. But accepting protection from someone called a cold-hearted killer is a double-edged sword . . . especially when hes the most intriguing man Anisha has ever laid eyes upon.
In a world where treachery abounds, no one can be trusted—and no true passion can be denied. Together, these two tempestuous souls will risk their lives for a love that could redeem them . . . or destroy everything they hold dear.
"Carlyle's delightful third and final Fraternitas romance (after The Bride Wore Scarlet) paints Victorian society with sensual undertones. Lady Anisha Stafford, a 'mixed-blood army widow' with two young sons, leaves India for England, the country that was her husband's home. Anisha develops a deep affection for Rance Welham, earl of Lazonby, a colleague of her brother's who has been accused of murder. Rance desires Anisha but is intent on clearing his name, worrying that his association with Anisha will ruin her reputation as a respectable widow. Their mutual attraction is based upon a deep admiration for one another, and fueled by Anisha's quick wit and charm. Sizzling love scenes are tastefully written, revealing the allure of love, not merely lust. As Anisha and Rance hunt the real killer, suspense and romance entwine to create an engaging read.
