Anna Bradley, author of A Wicked Way to Win an
Earl, continues her Sutherland Scandals series with a
tantalizing new Regency romance filled with opulence,
elegance, and forbidden desire...
Lily Somerset’s plan for the London season is simple:
courtship, marriage to a respectable gentleman, then the
comfortable existence of a proper Lady. That is, until one
tiny misstep leaves Lily on the edge of social ruin, forcing
her to depend on a wicked rogue to save her reputation.
Robyn Sutherland doesn’t save reputations—he
sullies them. He’d rather be drawn and quartered than
find himself spending the season as Lily’s escort. But
he has no choice but to stay until her tattered standing is
What begins as a ruse to deceive London soon flames into an
uncontrollable passion. Robyn calls to the wild spirit that
lurks beneath Lily’s prim exterior, and Lily awakens
the hero’s heart within Robyn. But can these unlikely
lovers trust themselves enough to let desire overrule reason?
Anna Bradley has been an avid reader, writer and book fondler since childhood, when she pilfered her first romance novel and stole away to her bedroom to devour it. This insatiable love of the written word persisted throughout her childhood in Maine, where it led to a master's degree in English Literature. Before she became a writer, Anna worked with a rare books library featuring works by British women writers from the 1600s through the Regency period. Here she indulged in her love of stories, fondled smooth, leather-bound volumes to her heart's content and dreamed of becoming a writer. Anna writes steamy historical romance (think garters, fops and riding crops) and squeezes in a career as a writing and literature professor on the side. She lives with her husband and two children in Portland, OR, where people are delightfully weird and love to read.
