Publisher Description

What if falling in love meant the death of the one you cared for?

Reinhart Maycott never expected to become the Marquess of Milbourne. Newly arrived in London from India, he doesn’t welcome the adulation his vast wealth, power, and handsome looks inspire among the Regency elite. He has walled up his broken heart and is determined not to fall in love or marry ever again. His past has convinced him that allowing someone into his heart means death for them. But can the course of true love be stopped?

Dutiful Mariah Parbury’s curiosity about Lord Milbourne’s former life in India leads her into a dangerous quest to break down the walls around his heart. Her efforts turn her into a rule-breaker she hardly recognizes. Will her quest lead to love, or scandal? Or will the past that haunts him reach forward and claim her as its next victim?

Award-winning, Amazon best-selling author Gail Eastwood offers a new, expanded version of her classic Signet Regency. New scenes and characters heighten the intrigue in this heart-warming and suspenseful sweet romance.

“Ms. Eastwood weaves a fascinating web of piquant romance and spine-tingling danger guaranteed to take your breath away.”— (4 stars) Romantic Times Magazine

“…a touch of mystery, a touch of the exotic and thoroughly believable characters…” –WCRG/AOL Reviewer Board

Marina Ariadne ,

Why didn't I read this earlier?

Now I have to glom everything she's written.

I know India primarily from an interest in tea culture, religious figures, dance, and music.

I'm always happy when someone non-European, or with experience outside of Europe, is a major, if not primary, character.

The Marquess was indeed Magnificent. Mariah was obviously one of the few women in London at that time who would have been right for him. It is also true that Mariah needed someone who accepted, if not rejoiced in, her love of knowledge and adventure.

I noticed that Mariah's sisters all had shorter forms of their birthname, but she did not.

I adore Ranee, the tamed cheetah. I have no interest in having a Big Cat as a pet, but it would have been nice had she had a larger part in the story. I really enjoy goat curry, but don't see it offered widely, as tandoori chicken is.

This was a well-paced and interesting story: I've been up all night reading it.
