Book 3 in THE MASQUERADERS series!

His was a face that women carried with them into their nightmares, not their fantasies...

John Fielding is not a gentleman. His brutal past has left him scarred, mind and body. But the scars are a valuable reminder of what's truly important. Revenge. And John will have his vengeance on the man who abandoned him when he was just a child. In fact, he'll make the entire bloodline pay for the sins of his father. No one can stop him. Except maybe Cordelia. She's everything John is not—kind and generous and loving. A good person. She deserves so much better than living in the shadow of her cruel sister. And she certainly deserves better than a beast like him. But that doesn't stop John from wanting her. Cordelia shines a light into the darkest corners of his soul, making him question what he's been living for all these years.

Now, he's only sure of one thing.

Her love could save him...but only if his quest for revenge doesn't destroy them both first.

An exciting tale of love that delivers a HEA and plenty of steamy scenes.

If you adore wounded, scarred heroes and the loving heroines who bring them to their knees, you'll love THE BASTARD.

About the Author

S.M. LaViolette is the pen name of historical romance author Minerva Spencer.

Minerva Spencer's brief author bio will tell you she has been a criminal prosecutor, college history teacher, and B&B operator. What it doesn't tell you is she also worked as a dock worker, ice cream manufacturer, reader for the blind, motel maid, and bounty hunter.

Okay, so the part about being a bounty hunter is a lie.

Minerva does, however, know how to hypnotize a Dungeness crab, sew her own Regency Era clothing, knit a frog hat, juggle, rebuild a 1959 American Rambler, and gain control of Asia (and hold on to it) in the game of RISK.
