Genre: Historical Romance/Regency
“I say, where did you find such a dress? Or should I say 'mess'?” Baron William Hargreaves, arbiter of all things fashionable, loves nothing more than firing his derisive salvos at his favorite target—Caroline Burgess, newly come to London society and the fading glory of the Ton.
Caroline will never admit she enjoys their skirmishes. Nor will she admit to the dreams he inspires, or the sensations he stirs deep inside her.
William tries to hide his growing attraction to Caroline, but as their relationship warms, Caroline outrageously accepts a role in a play—an unforgiveable profession for a lady of the Ton. Nonetheless, William cannot ignore her.
When Caroline is forced to shoot a man to death on a London street, she initiates a scandal far worse than her calling as an actress. Brokenhearted, she returns home to Philadelphia determined to leave England and her pain behind.
A blow to his own reputation overshadows William's judgment when he becomes trapped in a mockery of a marriage because of a product of a youthful indiscretion.
But where there is love, there is hope. His Wicked Lady, Book #3 in the Touch the Sky series.
