He has everything to gain by letting her in. And everything to lose.
Richard and Rose, Book 2

Now that she's engaged to Richard, one of the most admired-and passionate-men in society, shy, awkward Rose Golightly can finally hold her head high. She never anticipated that her elevated position would make her the target of a dangerous gang of smugglers.

Behind Richard's aloof, sophisticated facade lies a man of shrewd intelligence, fierce loyalty, and deep devotion to those he loves. He's willing to fight fair when necessary, dirty when cornered. Rose is one of only two people he trusts. All she's ever asked of him is that there be no secrets between them, but there are a few lingering dark corners he's reluctant to reveal.

Now, Rose's childhood friend has made a stand against the smugglers that rule the coast, unwittingly putting Rose in danger. With her life at stake, there's only one way Richard can save her-even if it means his bride has to trade her wedding gown for widow's weeds.

Warning: This series is addictive. Passion and murder are a potent mix.

Wow. Loved this -- book number 2 --- as well. So well written. Portrays the problem with smugglers quite well and also the different ways possible for Devon gentry to respond. Also, the author conveys, quite nicely, the difference in outlook between rural gentry and urban aristocracy regarding life, love, matrimony, fashion and lifestyle. Absolutely LOVE the descriptions of clothes, jewelry and manners! Fun read. Highly rec.
