The unique lead couple makes for a fresh Regency romance
Orphan Anne Beddington is a fallen lady who makes her living selling her body at Madame Sin's brothel. However, when she learns that Sin employs young kidnapped girls, she hits the Madame in the head enabling the youngsters to flee. Believing she killed her employer, Anne needs to leave London. When she sees the Duke of March, who was her first attempt at a sale five years ago, Anne offers again as Cherise, claiming to be a present from his friend.
Bitter since losing his sight during the war, the former charming Devon accepts her as his mistress. However, when he rages, she refuses to walk away from his rants. As the courtesan heals her patron and even helps his sister, her sinful past has caught up with her. Wanting to keep her beloved Devon safe, she begins to flee, but he refuses to allow his cherished angel to leave until at least he can prove her innocence.
The unique lead couple makes for a fresh Regency romance as he is blind and bitter and she is a soiled dove. Their coming together against all odds will have fans racing through the pages to learn what next in a sensual suspenseful historical.

Lovely, poised Anne Beddington is in a desperate situation: on the run for a crime she didn't commit. Anne understands the wicked games she must play to survive—she has perfected her silky voice, practiced her feathery caress—but has she sufficiently mastered the art of seduction to become the mistress of the notorious Duke of March, Devon Audley? War has left him a recluse, but Anne is penniless, alone, and needs a powerful gentleman's protection. Anne has learned how to pleasure a man, yet when this sinfully handsome duke insists that intimate delights must be a two-way street, Anne cannot deny his sensual promise.
Anne's delicate hands hold a healing touch, but it's her gentle kindness that opens the duke's eyes to the beauty around him and to a family who need him. Still, Anne is a mystery, and Devon intends to spend endless erotic hours uncovering her secrets. When he finds out the terrible truth about the devious plot to brand her a villainess and endanger her life, saving Anne becomes his salvation. She has shown Devon how to live and love again. Now he will prove the power of his passion.
Ms. Page is fabbbb-uuuulous! I was so damn hooked in this book, it was take-out night every night until finished!
The characters, the action, the steam, the comedy – all of it builds up to equal A+ work. Ms. Page does a phenomenal job at building characters and creating tension to get your heart pumping. This read was full of every thing you could ask for in a book and even then, it left you wanting more.
If you are looking for a book that gives you the happy ending with a whole lot of work in between, then this is the one for you. Five out of five stars for a job well done!
