Wicked Promise
by Kat Martin

A lady's desperate choice

When the loathsome Lord Bascomb tries to force her into marriage, Elizabeth Woolcot must appeal to her influential guardian. Nicholas Warring, known as the Wicked Earl, is a darkly handsome charismatic figure---with the power to save Elizabeth but a past that could put her reputation dangerously at risk. A ruthless womanizer, he has also been convicted of murder---and barely escaped hanging.

A rogue's tainted honor

Elizabeth can't help her attraction to the man who haunts her dreams---nor he his hunger for her. But she knows it can never be. For Nicholas is a married man---or at least appears to be. Then a heinous crime shatters their lives---and Nick is the natural suspect. Elizabeth wants to believe in his innocence more than life and love itself---but can she trust a man who has killed before?

Originally published November 1998 and January 2004 in mass market paperback and May 2014 in eBook format.
