Miss Laura Stokes is a man with a mission. The wicked Marquess of Marstoke ruined her sister’s life and she will exact justice—even if she has to dress as a gentleman to do it.
The Duke of Rothmore finds Mr. Lawrence McConnell a pest—until he discovers that he is a she—and then he cannot get the daring chit out of his mind. He must convince her to give up her vendetta—but can he also win her heart?
Deb Marlowe loves History, England and Men in Boots. Clearly she was meant to write Regency Historical Romance! Deb grew up in Pennsylvania with her nose in a book. Luckily, she'd read enough romances to recognize the true modern hero she met at a college Halloween party---even though he wore a tuxedo t-shirt instead of breeches and tall boots. They married, settled in North Carolina and produced two handsome, intelligent and genuinely amusing boys. Though she spends much of her time with her nose in her laptop, for the sake of her family she does occasionally abandon her inner world for the domestic adventure of laundry, dinner and carpool. Despite her sacrifice, not one of the men in her family is yet willing to don breeches or tall boots. She's working on it. Deb loves to hear from readers!
