Devil May Care by Andrea Pickens

Left for dead on the battlefield, Jack, Lord Leete, is rescued by an enemy French officer and his beautiful wife. Now back in England, he has no desire to return a life of rakish pleasures. The glittering ballrooms hold no allure, and the last thing he wants is a silly, simpering young wife. With visions of the seductive Camille La Rochelle still bedeviling his thoughts, he's sure that true love is beyond his grasp . . .

Clever and caustic, Harriet Farnum has always enjoyed crossing verbal swords with Jack. She loves his wry wit--and his kindness and compassion, which he hides behind the mask of a devil-may-care rogue. However, she knows he'll never see her as anything but "Harry", his plain-faced, practical-minded childhood friend.

But when Camille suddenly appears in London and Jack learns that her husband has disappeared while being held prisoner in England, he asks for Harriet's help in unraveling the mystery--and despite the danger to her own heart, she agrees. If she can't win his love, she can at least win his regard.

Treachery and deception. As they're drawn into a web of intrigue and deceit, Jack and Harriet find themselves forced to confront the true meaning of friendship, honor and love--but can Jack realize who really has hold of his heart before it's too late . . .

About the Author

I started creating books at the age of five, or so my mother tells me. And she has the proof--a neatly penciled story, the pages lavishly illustrated with full color crayon drawings of horses and bound with staples--to back up her claim. I have since moved on from Westerns to writing about Regency England (clearly I have a thing for Men In Boots!) a time and place that has captured my imagination ever since I opened the covers of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

I have a BA and an MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University, where I studied book design (As you see, I've always had a left brain-right brain love affair with art and the printed word.) These days, when I'm not tethered to my keyboard I enjoy traveling to interesting destinations around the world--however, my favorite spot is London, where the esoteric museums, funky antique markets and used book stores offer a wealth of inspiration for my stories.

(p.s. I also write Regency-set mysteries as Andrea Penrose, and historical romances, which are sexier than these traditional Regencies, as Cara Elliott.)
