A TEMPTING DIVERSION
Things have always fallen into place for Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh. His good looks, abundance of charm, and the small matter of being heir to a marquisate make him quite the catch. So when a delectable young woman wants nothing to do with him, he can’t help but seize the irresistible challenge.

AN UNLIKELY COURTSHIP
Jane Bunting knows all about responsibility—she has managed to support herself and her brother with their bakery—but she knows nothing of excitement or passion. When dashing Lord Raleigh crosses the threshold of her shop, she has no idea of the potential danger to her reputation…or to her heart.

AN IMPOSSIBLE MATCH
Neither imagined things would go so far—until the night their worlds collide, irrevocably changing both their lives. But when duty calls for Richard, and with everything Jane's worked for suddenly at stake, will their taste for scandal be their downfall?

Knightley (More than a Stranger) presents an unconventional light romance with a strong cast of characters but no villains to speak of. Richard Moore, the Earl of Raleigh, boldly tries to save baker Jane Bunting from a ruffian—but the man is Jane's cousin. She thinks the earl is attacking him and hollers for his arrest. The confusion is soon sorted out, and after Jane apologizes for her overreaction and Richard for the damages he's caused, a tentative friendship is forged. Jane shows Richard how sheltered he is as he watches her work hard to keep her shop and secure her brother's future. Richard, who is used to the simpering ladies of the ballroom, is intrigued by Jane and sets out to win her over with teasing. Holding their own as co-stars are the other women in Richard's life: his sisters, his mother, and the young woman his family hopes he marries. His merry, sneaky sister Beatrice has a heart of gold and makes the perfect fairy godmother in this Cinderella story. Family dynamics and loyalty propel the narrative forward. Much like the pastries that play a prominent role in the Richard's courtship of Jane, this romance is rich, savory, and warm. (Dec. 2013)
