“Filled with humor and witty repartee… Grace woos readers in true Regency style.” —Publishers Weekly
“Charming… Grace captures the essence and atmosphere of the era.” —RT Book Reviews
Grace's second Rival Rogues historical (after One Rogue Too Many) cleverly uses the allure of Regency-era respectability to draw a very proper widow into romantic entanglement. Lady Helena Prestwick returns to London from Scotland to search for her missing sister, Lavinia. Her nighttime forays into Whitechapel become even more dangerous when Sebastian, Lord Thorne, learns of her less than ladylike behavior. Sebastian offers to keep her late night excursions a secret and assist her in finding Lavinia if she will agree to sponsor his sister, Eve, for her debut season. When Helena resists Sebastian's efforts to make her one of his conquests, he realizes that his physical attraction has evolved into genuine affection. Even though she is won over, Helena is certain that she will lose Sebastian once and for all when she reveals the secrets of her past. Grace employs a wide variety of tones, from light-hearted humor to passionate sensuality, and combines effortless storytelling with a touch of suspense and plenty of scintillating romance.
