Geoffrey Vance, the Marquess of Kensington, is the heir to a dukedom. To escape the tyranny of his father and the burden of a duty he dreads, he flees to the battlefields of Europe and the war against Napoleon. But now the war is over and Geoff drifts into an aimless life of brothels and gaming hells, an existence that disgusts even him...until the night he rescues a beautiful young woman and her wealthy uncle from a pack of thugs.


Lorna is entranced by the handsome nobleman. He is like a fairy tale prince and like a prince he is forbidden her. For the girl cannot even claim to be a genuine cit. She was raised in the most infamous bordello in Regency London, the House of Dreams. The mother of her heart is the bordello owner who sheltered her and raised her as a proper young miss after rescuing her as a child from the worst slum in London.


In spite of the objections of his family and her adopted uncle, the two are caught up in an undeniable passion and wed. But the young bride's past--part of which she does not even know--is catching up with her. Someone is trying to murder her and Geoff frantically searches for the would-be killer. But Lorna is even more frantic. What will happen if the man she loves more than life itself discovers she has betrayed him with...

About the Author

SHIRL HENKE lives in St. Louis, where she enjoys gardening in her yard and greenhouse, cooking holiday dinners for her family and listening to jazz. In addition to helping brainstorm and research her books, her husband Jim is “lion tamer” for their two wild young tomcats, Pewter and Sooty, geniuses at pillage and destruction.
Shirl has been a RITA finalist twice, and has won three Career Achievement Awards, an Industry Award and three Reviewer’s Choice Awards from Romantic Times. In 2013, Shirl was designated by Romantic Times as one of the influential "pioneers" of the modern romance novel.
“I wrote my first twenty-two novels in longhand with a ballpoint pen—it’s hard to get good quills these days,” she says. Dragged into the twenty-first century by her son Matt, a telecommunication specialist, Shirl now uses two of those “devil machines.” Another troglodyte bites the dust.
