A sensible woman would know when to give up...
But Pip Knight has loved Viscount Drummond since she was a very little girl. And just because he doesn't believe he can love her doesn't mean she shouldn't watch over him. Pip knows Beau's secret, that he works with a clandestine group of gentlemen called Drake's Rakes to help protect England. She also knows he is in danger and would do anything to protect him. Unhappily for them both, that means a forced marriage. The question is now whether to fight for a marriage with a man who has long since buried his heart and blames her for it.
A sensible man would know when to give up...
But Beau Drummond has a score to settle. Not just with the group of traitors who are trying to overthrow the crown. But with the people who helped his beloved brother Theo to run off to war, where he died, leaving Beau guilt-stricken and grieving. And one of those people is Pip Knight. It doesn't help that Pip is unforgettable in every way, infecting a man's dreams and trying to seduce him back to life. It doesn't matter that she is his wife. Pip was supposed to be Theo's wife, and Beau cannot forgive himself for taking Theo's place. Everything changes when he and Pip find themselves in a deadly fight that could destroy both their country and themselves.
Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Eileen Dreyer is actually evil twins. Known as Kathleen Korbel to her Silhouette readers, she has published thirty-seven novels and novellas and 11 short stories in not only the various genres of romance (including historical, suspense, fantasy and contemporary) but suspense---most particularly medical forensic suspense, where she kills off the people who annoyed her when she worked as a trauma nurse She came to publishing from that world of trauma nursing, which taught her some very important lessons, the most important being "don't sweat the small stuff," or, as her family puts it, "come see me when you get hit by a bus." In addition to trauma, she is trained in death investigation and Tactical Medicine (technically she is eligible to be a medic on a SWAT team). Eileen won her first publishing award in 1987, being named the best new Contemporary Romance Author by Romantic Times. Since then she has garnered not only a prestigious Anthony Award nomination for mystery, but five Rita Awards from the Romance Writers of America, which afforded her a place as only the fourth member in the RWA Hall of Fame. Eileen is a voracious reader---of everything---who started writing at ten, when she ran out of Nancy Drews. She writes in two genres, because she believes in the message of both: hope and justice. (well, and because she hasn't finished that big fantasy yet) You can figure out which is which. A frequent speaker at writer's conferences and universities all across the country (and more recently, Italy), Eileen is a member not only of Romance Writers of America, but Novelists, Inc, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and, just in case things go wrong, Emergency Nurses Association. She has also assumed the mantle of unofficial mascot for the International Association of Forensic Nurses, a new forensic subspecialty that, amazingly enough, has begun to show up in her work. A lifelong resident of St. Louis, Missouri, Eileen has been married for forty-four years to husband Rick, and has two children and might have grandchildren. She also has animals but refuses to expose them to the glare of the limelight. An addicted traveler, she has sung in some of the best Irish pubs in the world, and enjoys the kind of hands-on book research that lets her salve an insatiable curiosity. She counts film producers, police detectives and Olympic athletes as some of her sources and friends.
