A Dangerous Bargain...
They called him the Demon Earl. They said he could do anything. Son of a rogue and a gypsy, Nicolas Davies was a notorious rake until a shattering betrayal left him alone and embittered in the Welsh countryside.
Desperation drives quiet schoolmistress Clare Morgan to ask the Demon Earl to help save her village. Unwilling to involve himself in the problems of others, Nicholas sets an impossible price on his aid—only if Clare will live with him for three months, letting the world think the worst, will he intervene. Furiously Clare accepts his outrageous challenge, and finds herself drawn into a glittering Regency world of danger and desire.
As allies, she and Nicholas fight to save her community. As adversaries, they explore the hazardous terrain of power and sensuality. And as lovers, they surrender to a passion that threatens the foundations of their lives….
"Both sublimely romantic and scorchingly sensual, Thunder and Roses is an extraordinary romance from an extraordinary author."

Loved the length and detail of this romance novel and how well it was written.
I really enjoyed this book. It was fun to read and had some good twists. I will be reading the others in this series.
Thunder and Roses
An interesting novel that mesmerized this reader while educating on the perilous mining of coal. How one village depended on its livelihood, the main characters were endearing and inspiring. Enjoyed this book, recommend it highly.
