It’s never wise

to blackmail a highwayman…

Lady Corinne, rebellious daughter of the duke

of Banfield, refuses to marry Lord Freddie Sherwin.

Yes, he’s the catch of the Season and the man her father

With her wedding only weeks away, she flees and finds herself a prisoner

of the notorious Thorn!

Who says the devil isn’t a woman?

The rich and powerful tremble at the highwayman’s

name, while England’s villagers rejoice in his bold exploits. His identity is a secret; his life a mystery—

until Lady Corinne tumbles into his arms. If the

Thorn wants her silence, he must hide her until her

wedding day passes. It’s a devil’s bargain and one that

can only lead to a hangman’s noose.

Corinne believes it the perfect plan—until her

highwayman reveals a passionate lover’s heart, and she

realizes that in the seduction of scandal, she may have

found the hero she’s been waiting for her whole life.
