A thrilling new historical romance from the "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Secret Wedding"
When Arabella Barstowe is kidnapped, she believes her life and virtue are forfeit-until she's rescued by the notorious rogue Captain Rose. Bella never expects to see him again. But years later she learns the wicked truth behind her abduction, and she seeks out the only man who can help her take revenge.
What she doesn't know is that Captain Rose is just a disguise for the formidable Duke of Ithorne, who is intrigued to hear from the mysterious woman from his past. Their lives are soon entangled by danger and a growing forbidden passion.

Review by Library Journal (2010-04-15)

Abducted under bizarre circumstances but ultimately rescued by the fierce renegade Captain Rose, Bella Barstowe returns home, reviled by her family as a fallen woman. Four years later, financially independent (courtesy of her great-grandmother's will), living in London disguised as homely Bellona Flint, and working as a copyist and occasional "researcher" for a social reformer's scandal sheet, Bella is still puzzled by the events of her kidnapping-until she comes across the appalling truth.

Vowing revenge, Bella seeks out the man who rescued her years before, never realizing that Captain Rose is actually the powerful Duke of Ithorne or that they had met again at a masquerade she had recently crashed in search of scandal.

Verdict: Lies, deception, and hidden identities ramp up the intrigue as a fascinating pair of protagonists join a familiar cast and provide another enchanting trip into Beverley's beautifully rendered, delightfully licentious Malloren world (after The Secret Wedding). Beverley is a best-selling author and member of the Romance Writers of Americar Hall of Fame. She lives in Canada.
