The No Better Angels box set includes four darkly elegant, full-length, Victorian set historical romances collected in a single omnibus edition: The Secret Heart, The Lover's Knot, The Orphan Pearl and The Young Blood.
The Secret Heart
Caroline Small is a fortune hunter, and she's found her prey of choice: the Earl of Bexley. But the more she schemes to entrap him, the more she risks trapping her own heart.
The Lover's Knot
When Julian Swann becomes the tenth Duke of Clive, he's surprised to learn that his predecessor—who supposedly died of a heart attack—actually committed suicide. But the secret of the last duke's death is more sinister than it first appears. His suicide note is a forgery. And the author, to Julian's horror, can only be Sophia Roe--his ex-fiancee.
The Orphan Pearl
Lady Lily Spark has been missing, presumed dead, for years. Now she’s back in England, and in possession of a secret that could change the course of history. And she has no intention of giving it—or herself—up to anyone.
The Young Blood
Sabine Banchory believes that an unhappy marriage has made her immune to rakes like the Earl of Kingston. Kingston is fairly certain that, with the right attentions, Sabine will fall into his bed and insist that she'd come up with the plan. It's a game of cat and mouse he's played before, interrupted by a terrible crime that changes the rules... for good.
