FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR MADELINE HUNTER
She was a sensible woman.
He was a man who could drive a woman senseless with desire.
Gareth Fitzallen is celebrated for four things: his handsome face, his notable charm, his aristocratic connections, and an ability to give the kind of pleasure that has women begging for more. Normally he bestows his talents on experienced, worldly women. But when he heads to Langdon’s End to restore a property he inherited—and to investigate a massive art theft—he lays plans to seduce a most unlikely lady.
Eva Russell lives a spinster’s life of precarious finances and limited dreams while clinging to her family’s old gentry status. She supports herself by copying paintings while she plots to marry her lovely sister to a well-established man. Everyone warns her of Gareth’s reputation, and advises her to lock her sister away. Only it is not her sister Gareth desires. One look, and she knows he is trouble. One kiss, however, proves she is no match for this master of seduction.
#1 in a new amazing series, “Wicked Trilogy”. Well written with engaging, charismatic, and strong-willed characters. The storyline is fast paced, intriguing, involves stolen Art, secrets, passion, betrayal, danger, and romance. This is Gareth Fitzallen and Eva Russell’s story.
