The future looks bright for former sailor Jack Merion. His wartime heroics have won him influential contacts, and his good looks and flair for business are definite assets. With funds to invest, he's on the brink of financial success in the high-stakes world of Regency London.
There's only one problem – another prospective buyer. With a dark past, a desperate future, and some unmistakable assets of her own, Miss Cléo Myles is a formidable obstacle, one that Jack would be wise to steer clear of.
But instead, he proposes a bargain that's as scandalous as it is irresistible.
Five afternoons. Five rooms. Uncountable pleasures...
...In a neighborhood that's seen better days. And a house that's seen everything except love.
"Pam Rosenthal's writing will seduce and enchant you – so hot but also romantic and touching!" – Caroline Linden
"Pam Rosenthal is a master at her craft and A House East of Regent Street is a gem, the kind of gem that is not only beautiful to behold, but radiates warmth and unforgettable emotional clarity." – USA Today-bestselling author Sherry Thomas
"A House East of Regent Street has all Pam's trademark sensuality with flawed and deeply interesting characters who come to life in this touching story. If you like your hero and heroine to have an interesting and unorthodox past and enjoy gritty realism in your romances, then this story is definitely for you." -- NYT and USA Today-bestselling author Kate Pearce

About the Author
A funny thing happened to San Francisco computer programmer and occasional essay writer Pam Rosenthal on or about the beginning of the twenty-first century: She became seized by an urge to write sexy period romance novels. She’d already published some erotica, buoyed by a wave of life-changing feminist discussion about what was possible, permissible, or just plain fun to say about female sexual desire. This led her to explore the history of sexual expression – and to think hard about what love has to do with sex and sex with love, and what sex and love have to do with freedom and respect between equals.
Nurtured by this wide-ranging, supportive, energetic community of readers and writers, Pam wrote four romance novels and one novella. It was the experience of a lifetime, culminating in 2009, when The Edge of Impropriety won Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award for Best Historical Romance.
And then – sadly and surprisingly – she found that she’d said all that she had to say.
But the books remain. And Pam maintains an abiding respect for the writers who prevail over the long haul, a deep affection for those (like her) who have their say and move on, and a fascination with a genre that continues to grow and change, as it teaches itself to serve a wider, more representative community and a richer understanding of love, freedom, and respect for all of us.
Pam’s a grandma now; retired from programming and novel-writing, these days she works alongside Michael, her retired bookseller husband, at their copyediting business, P&M Editorial Services. They love editing romance (check out their website at pmeditorial.com), and recently P&M have begun lovingly reissuing revised and expanded versions of Pam’s romance fiction.
