The man is arrogant, insufferable ... and dangerously irresistible!
Alexander Scarston, Earl of Selbourne, may be wealthy, devilishly handsome, and one of England's most eligible bachelors, but as far as lovely Lucia Dashing is concerned, the man is a scoundrel -- one who makes her heart race, even as her own safe, stodgy fiancé leaves her feeling cold -- but a scoundrel nonetheless. However when Lucia's twin brother vanishes mysteriously, she must turn to Alex for help and convince the fearless and arrogant earl that he needs her and her inspired plans.
As a secret agent for the Crown, Alex has mastered the ability to mask his identity and his heart. When he realizes that his nation's future depends on his finding the missing youth, Alex risks all by exposing innocent Lucia to his world of secrets and subterfuge. The impulsive lady delights in courting certain danger for the first time in her young life -- yet nothing will prove as perilous as Alex Scarston's kiss!
From an exciting new voice in romantic fiction comes a fast-paced and emotional historical romance. Shana Galen is sure to dazzle readers with her undeniable talent and unique brand of wit and charm. This is an author to watch!
Alex Scarston, Earl of Selbourne. Rake. Spy. With his efforts for England in the war against the French suspended, family obligations compel him to investigate the disappearance of Viscount Brigham's son. When the viscount's daughter becomes involved as well, Alex finds himself entangled in a venture that risks both heart and soul.
It's not that Lucia Dashing, youngest daughter of Lord Brigham, wants Alex to go away. She just wishes he wasn't always so close—perhaps a few rooms, or streets, or continents between them would bank the heat of her attraction. But when her brother disappears, she's no choice but to engage the earl in a battle risking her brother, her country, and her love.
An exciting new voice in romance scores in this fast-paced, emotionally rich historical winner. When her twin brother vanishes, a headstrong young beauty must join forces with the arrogant, dangerously irresistible British spy who is driving her to distraction. Original.
