A story of frolics and folly, a search for true love, and midnight skies filled with stars. Make a wish…
William Angel has been scandalizing London with his antics ever since he became the Earl of Archer one year ago, but now his rakish ways have come back to haunt him. He needs a respectable bride to help him find an honorable husband for his beloved younger sister, but there isn’t a single proper lady in London who wants to marry the Tainted Angel.
Enter an improper lady….
There’s nothing as beautiful as Christmas in London, but instead of celebrating with warm fires and spiced punch, Penelope Hervey is struggling to survive London’s merciless city streets. She has no family, no money, and she’s about to lose her place as an actress at the Pandemonium Playhouse. Only an angel can save her.
Enter a Tainted Angel…
Fate brings Will and Penelope together at a Christmas house party, but will a passion that began on the London stage burn bright enough to lead these two misguided lovers to their Christmas miracle?
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.
