"In her latest historical Regency, Scott beautifully builds a quiet sense of menance and dangerous intrigue and then adds wonderfully complex characters and witty writing to create an exceptionally memorable romance." -- Booklist

"Appealing, intelligent protagonists, nicely defined if not always likeable secondary characters, and the darker elements of greed, murder, and revenge combine with charming dialog, well-done descriptions, and solid prose to produce a historical that shouldn't disappoint." -- Library Journal

5 stars. “An incredible romance filled with danger, excitement, and betrayal. Read this! Can I make it any clearer?” -- The Huntress Reviews

"Regina Scott is a master storyteller. Once I started reading, I could not stop. She has crafted a wonderful tale full of romance and suspense. One word truly sums it up--perfection." -- Affaire de Coeur

Excerpt
“How did you manage to evade your duties?” As the carriage set off, he crossed one booted leg over the other and clasped it with both large hands.

She felt her smile widen, remembering. “My brother is riding with a groom. He is in alt, and my stepmother grudgingly allowed me a few moments to myself.”

“Then you will not mind taking extra time in our meeting.”

She cocked her head. “No. Why?”

“I intend to learn the truth of your fortune, as I said.”

She laughed. “If you can do that, I will think you possessed of magical powers, Lord Oberon.”

He raised a brow. “You see me as a fairy?”

Her laugh bubbled up again, but somehow she thought he liked the sound. Perhaps it was the smile that tugged at the corner of his mouth.

“Have you ever read Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream?” she asked. “Puck you may call a fairy. Oberon is definitely something more.”

He crossed his arms over his chest. “Indeed. Arrogant, demanding, controlling.”

“If the shoe fits, my lord.”

“Only too well, Miss Rider. And do I take it you see yourself as Titania, queen of the fairies?”

She shook her head. “And fall in love with a donkey? No, thank you.”

“A shame,” he replied with a decided twinkle in his eye. “I was growing rather fond of your fiancé.”

Celia burst into laughter and was rewarded to see the smile spread on his face. It was like the sun coming out after a storm.

    Filled with danger, excitement, and betrayal...

    Brandon Pellidore, Marquess of Hartley, had to be careful. His family line was reported to have insanity. All who died due to it did so by age thirty. Therefore, Brandon would only receive his inheritance if he lived until age thirty without showing any of the insanity symptoms. Thirty was only a couple months away. Because Brandon was so careful and stand-offish around others, the Ton gave him the title 'Lord Heartless'. It gave Brandon the reputation he preferred. Then he met Celia Rider. ............... Celia was drawn to Brandon, even though she was promised to another. She was able to see behind his mask. Her title for him was 'Lord Oberon'. Brandon learned that Celia had been informed that her late father had left her penniless. Knowing it to be untrue, Celia was on a quest to locate her missing inheritance and find the thief. Brandon insisted on helping. Their investigation began to make someone nervous enough to attempt murder. ............... ***** An incredible romance filled with danger, excitement, and betrayal. There is much more going on than my synopsis reveals between the main hero and heroine. In addition, there are several secondary characters that captured my attention from the start. Tantalizing sub-plots keep the story moving along at a fast pace. Read this! Can I make it any clearer? *****
