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.
“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.

This tale is a fitting wrap for a trilogy that begins in revolutionary America and ends on the Scottish border of Regency England. Beth Blackthorne is as willful as her arrogant father Quintin Blackthorne and her roguish cousin Alex Blackthorne. And like her relatives she winds up in one tangle after another, often of her own making. Lots of the steamy love scenes one expects from a Henke novel and more than one book's share of adventures. You'll find this one hard to put down. I did.

The first thing I was happy to see in Wanton Angel was the return of Alvin Francis Edward Drummond, the crusty, witty, little fop from Wicked Angel. Glad to see, too, that he's lost none of his "charm." But there is more to Drum then appears. He is Derrick's bodyguard, no less. And there is more also to Beth than wayward, free-spirited woman and more to Derrick than charming spy. Beth sees the rules of society as a prison, Derrick as a code to live by. Now how can the lovers reach a compromise, especially when the one thing they share (in addition to passion) is the knack for making enemies who want to kill them?

Shirl Henke does not create wimpy heroines. Beth Blackthorne becomes an accidental countess. But she is a highly skilled painter who has posed in the nude (gasp!) for fellow artists; escaped intact from a harem in Algiers; and, courtesy of being raised in the backwoods of Georgia, is mighty handy with a gun and knife. She is deeply in love with Derrick, who is no shrinking violet himself, the former English spy who's become an accidental earl. But Derrick makes life miserable for himself and the woman he loves, until he finally gets it through his thick skull that he has not married an ornamental peacock, but a fierce falcon that can never be caged. And when Beth's life, that of their child's and his own is on the line, he is finally able to admit to himself that he wants the "falcon," sharp talons and all.
