In the game of espionage, love is a weakness...
When Viscount Margrave joined the Regent's Consul, an elite group of spies formed during the Napoleonic Wars, he did so with the understanding he would never marry. Danger lurks around every corner in the world of intrigue, and vulnerability quickly becomes a nail in one’s coffin. Unfortunately, the most alluring debutante of the Season has set her cap for him, and resisting the desire to make her his own is sweet torture.
In the game of courtship, love is the prize...
One magical kiss from her uncle’s handsome godson under the mistletoe convinced Sophia Darlington of what she suspected all along. Lord Margrave is her soulmate. Persuading the stubborn viscount, however, is an exercise in frustration. One moment he encourages her to find a more suitable husband, then he frightens away would-be suitors with his dark glowers and menacing presence. The man is impossible, but she loves him. And she’ll entice him into admitting he loves her too, even if it kills her.

Historical Romance with heart and humor
A Worthy Rival
The idea behind the Rival Rogues series was to create a friendly rivalry between two hero-worthy gentleman who find themselves in pursuit of the same lady. Their motives for courting the lady are different, but either gentleman could make a perfectly good husband. The plan was always to create a HEA for every rogue. Anthony Keaton found his happy ending in ONE ROGUE TOO MANY. Sebastian Thorne fell in love in IN BED WITH A ROGUE, Benjamin Hillary won his ladylove's heart in THE BEST OF BOTH ROGUES, and Jonathan Hackberry will get his day in my series GENTLEMEN OF INTRIGUE.
Why did I decide to make the choice difficult for the ladies? Mostly because a love-triangle never made much sense to me when one of the other guys is clearly a jerk. Why would he even be in the running? Nevertheless, I understand readers have become emotionally invested in all of the heroes in this series, and sometimes the hero they would choose for themselves seems to get a raw deal. Please be reassured the hero you love most will get the HEA he deserves.
