He's secretly a highwayman. So is she.
In London’s most glittering salons, she is lovely young widow Lady Elizabeth Barnes-Finchley. But by night, she rides as highwayman Blackerby Swift, seeking vengeance against the man who took from her all she once loved. Then a pistol shot on a moonlit heath brings her face-to-face with a rival highwayman: Marcus Worthington, darkly handsome, lethally dangerous—and determined to stop her.
A fallen-from-grace earl with a nefarious reputation, Marcus wants vengeance against the man responsible for his father’s death and his family’s ruin. Elizabeth is a clever, daring, enchanting obstacle in his path. The two outlaws reluctantly agree to join forces against their mutual enemy, but the odds are against both of them surviving the dangerous partnership—and falling in love was never part of the plan.
