Fox Barlow is known in England as the Shawnee Lord, the name given at Eton to an American with red Indian blood. He wears the mocking title as a badge of honor. Even though he is under the sponsorship of a powerful marquess, Fox will never be accepted by Society. Nor does he wish to be, preferring the sybaritic life of a profligate rake, pursuing and pursued by Cyprians and aristocratic ladies alike. He vows never to marry.

Her cutting wit and bright copper hair are not at all "the thing" on the marriage mart." Even worse, her life's dream is to work at designing ships. If she weds, any proper English nobleman would put a period to her plans. She vows never to marry.


When Fox's sister-in-law Rachel and Cat's cousin Beth see the sparks fly between Fox and Cat, they plot to make them realize they are meant for each other. To foil their beloved kinswomen's plans, Cat makes a bold proposal to Fox--a marriage of convenience allowing them both to live as they choose and escape the marriage mart. With misgivings he accepts. Neither the daring Cat nor the cynical Fox imagine how right Rachel and Beth are. But none of them realize the deadly consequences of the betrothal when a jealous woman decides that she now desires...

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. She lives with Pewter and Sooty, geniuses at pillage and destruction. Sooty's repertoire would be considered more impressive by many gardeners than Shirl's--he averages around a hundred mole kills a year.
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 "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. Please visit her at
