WILL THE ROGUE'S PERFECT PLAN . . .

Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, has no desire to wed, this season or any other. So when his father demands he give up his wild ways and take a wife, Colin refuses. But his father raises the stakes and threatens to sell the ancestral home if Colin doesn't comply. Now Colin has no choice but to find a wife. Unfortunately, the only woman he wants is the one whose heart he broke years ago.

LEAD TO THE PERFECT SEDUCTION?

Regardless of the ton's whispers, Lady Angeline Brenham won't settle for anything less than true love. After rejecting more than her share of suitable suitors, spinsterhood looms before her-until the devilishly handsome Colin reappears in her life with a proposition. Angeline vows to keep her feet on the ground and her heart in check. That is, until one searing kiss melts her resolve and reignites a burning desire for more . . .

        Vicky Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the United Kingdom allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her Trouble.

        When she's not writing, Vicky enjoys reading, films, concerts, and, most of all, long lunches with friends. A native Texan, she holds degrees in English literature and marketing.

        In 1821, Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, is a wenching ne’er-do-well. His father, the Marquess of Chadwick, threatens to sell the home where Colin’s mother is buried, unless Colin renounces his rakish ways and takes a wife. Colin believes that renovating the building will convince his father that he cares about the family holdings. He enlists the assistance of family friend Lady Angeline Brenham, who’s suffering under the cloud of a scandalous broken engagement. As the two make Colin’s house into a home, proximity and personality interact in a seductively explosive combination. When Colin proposes to solve their problems with marriage, Angelina holds off, refusing to confine free-spirited Colin while sheltering her own previously burned heart. Colin must make them both believe that a life together is possible, before he loses his childhood home forever. The characters are implausibly honorable and forgiving of one another’s faults, but a deliciously slow-burning plot make this story worth savoring.
