A Desperate Lord...

As rebel, soldier, hero, and spy, Kenneth Wilding had never known defeat. But nothing can save his heritage when he returns from the wars to an empty title and a ravaged estate. Nothing--until a stranger offers a devil's bargain: financial salvation in return for Kenneth's special subversive skills. Reluctantly Kenneth enters the household of the greatest artist in England to unmask a terrible crime. Instead, he discovers something infinitely more dangerous: a tantalizing new way of life and an irresistible woman. Everything he has always wanted--and can never have.

A Scandalous Lady...

Her reputation ruined by a disastrous elopement, tempestuous Rebecca Seaton withdraws to her attic studio and buries herself in her painting. Then Kenneth Wilding sweeps into her life with his pirate's face and poet's soul. Warily they slide into a duel of desire that brings both searing risks and shattering fulfillment. But Kenneth's secret mission comes between them, unleashing a danger that threatens Rebecca's life even as passion sweeps them into a river of fire that transforms their very souls...

Editorial Reviews

Romantic Times Magazine - Kathe Robin
"Mary Jo Putney once again sweeps readers into a story that captures and holds their hearts, introducing old friends and bringing us a new hero and heroine. She brilliantly capture the intricacies, mores, manners and wit of the era with panache, and with her special gift for story telling that brings readers great joy."
--Kathe Robin, Romantic Times, 4 ½ stars
Under the Covers Book Reviews - Kimberly Borrowdale
"River of Fire is intense and emotional, at times dark, but never depressing. Putney has done wonders at revealing the soul, creative insight, temperament, and world of visual artists. The novel so inspired me that I, not a visual artist, was moved to try to put my emotions on paper with color and form via a visual medium--and it was exhilarating. That's how exquisite River of Fire is."
--Kimberly Borrowdale, Under the Covers Book Reviews
The Romance Reader - Dede Anderson
"River of Fire delivers more than enough drama and romance to entertain historical romance readers and reinforce Mary Jo Putney's reputation as one of the best."
--Dede Anderson, The Romance Reader
Publishers Weekly
"In this Regency romance, Putney offers a strong romantic relationship, good writing and memorable characters, and a portrayal of the London art world filled with jealousy and passion."
--Publishers Weekly

Meet the Author

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes.

Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she has six times had books listed among the Library Journal’s top five romances of the year, and three times had books among the top ten romances of Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association.

Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she’ll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She’s delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print.
