Scoundrels, thieves and rebels inhabit the rookeries--where dangerous men fall in love with fierce women.

Abigail Vautille dreamed of escaping the Whitechapel rookery and starting a new life until one tragic night left her scarred and penniless. To save her family from debtor's prison, she strikes a deal with the rogue who owns her father's gambling vowels-if he excuses the debt, for two weeks, she'll give him her body, but not her heart. 

Inspector Michael Strickland of the Metropolitan Police has always had a way with women. Success comes easily to him, and he glides through life on his good looks and family name. But Abigail lights a passion within him he never knew existed. He sees the beauty within her, not the beast she believes herself to be.  

After a dangerous figure from Abigail's past resurfaces vowing vengeance, things take a sinister turn. But Michael will stop at nothing to keep the woman he loves safe. When the stakes are high and the scars are more than skin deep, passion may be the key to a happily ever after. 
Note: Beauty and the Rake
 is a dark, gritty, and steamy (heat level 4 out of 5, on-page sex scenes) full-length romantic suspense set in pre-Victorian working-class London. While it is book three in the Rookery Rogues series, it can be read as a stand-alone historical romance.
