Overview

England, 1663

When Katherine Welles saves the life of a highwayman, she realizes he may be the only avenue of escape from a betrothal to her villainous neighbor. But traveling under the protection of a dashing outlaw--who won't ask directions--is anything but safe. Especially when his searing hot kisses awaken a yearning for something Katherine never knew she wanted.

Nicholas Montford, the exiled Earl of Ashton, returns to England determined to reclaim his family lands. As a highwayman called the Raven, he takes revenge upon the Puritans who thrived while his family suffered. But when he kidnaps heiress Katherine Welles, thoughts of revenge take second place to kissing her soft lips and teasing the mistrust from her eyes. Can he find redemption in the arms of the woman he plans to betray?

Read an Excerpt

Looking up, she saw a challenge in Nicholas's eyes. He took her shoulders in his strong hands, and slowly drew her to him.

She thought to push him away, but instead her fingers grasped his shirt.

His mouth swooped down, and his lips captured hers. As his arms wrapped around her, she melted into him.

A fierce heat rose up in her. Her hand moved up his chest and over his collarbone to his corded neck where she could feel the strong beat of his pulse.

His tongue teased her lips for entry. She felt a momentary quaver, a sense of alarm, at the knowledge that in his arms she lost all control. Then her mouth opened. As the kiss deepened, her pulse echoed in rhythm with his. A throbbing began in her loins, and she heard herself whimper. With fear? Or pleasure?

For she felt both. His kiss consumed her, as brushwood in a fire.

His hand came to rest on her breast. His fingers teased her nipple until her breast felt swollen and aching. Shock gave way to pleasure. She inhaled the warm familiar smell of him, of man and horse and coffee as his hand continued its exploration. Cradling her head with one hand, he pursued the kiss with more fervor. His other hand moved downward over her buttocks, kneading and pushing as he held her against the hardness at his groin. A frisson of alarm ran through her as she remembered the stallion and the screaming mare.

Katherine stiffened.

Nicholas groaned and set her from him.

With a shaking hand, she brushed a lock of hair from her face. She gulped and touched lips still tingling. Her words came low and labored. "I think I understand."

He looked at her, the planes of his face made harsh by the firelight. A mockingsmile touched the corners of his mouth.

"No, you do not." He shook his head. "'Twas just the beginning of it."

    A reviewer

    The English restoration has begun. Puritans are busy trying to look like royalists and the returning Cavaliers are trying to regain all they have lost. It is a fascinating era and Ms. Black brings the conflicts to life. Dutiful daughter, Katherine Welles, rebels against the marriage planned by her Puritan father. When she secretly saves the life of Nicholas, the Raven, a flamboyant highwayman on the rampage among the local nobility, she sees her way out. In return for saving his life, he will deliver her to her sympathetic aunt in London. Raven has his own agenda. His family fled with Charles the II to France and lost the land the Welles now own. He's back to restore his fortunes, or obtain revenge. Ms. Black leads us on a mad romp from the wilds of Dorset to the court of King Charles with a lass determined to shake off her unpleasant suitor and a man whose deprivations and the revenge he promised his father have stolen his ability to feel any gentler emotions. Or so he thought until Katherine, the woman he is about to betray, begins to melt the ice around his heart. What will happen when she discovers the truth? A great story in an unusual era with lots of twists and turns to keep the reader on her toes. Can't recommend it enough.
