When his family abandoned him at Eton, Benedict Hastings found an unexpected ally in his best friend's sister. Her letters kept him going—until the day he had to leave everything behind. Years later, Benedict has seen his share of betrayal, but when treachery hits close to home, he turns to his old friend for safe haven....

After five torturous years on the marriage circuit, Lady Evelyn Moore is finally free to live her life as she wishes. So when her brother shows up with a dashing stranger, she finds herself torn between her dreams...and newfound desires. Despite his determination to keep Evie at a distance, Benedict cannot deny the attraction that began with a secret correspondence. Yet as they begin to discover one another, the dangers of Benedict's world find them, threatening their lives, their love, and everything they thought they could never have...

        April 30, 2012
        Knightley debuts with a ham-handed but sweet Regency on an age-old theme. Lady Evelyn Moore is surprised and intrigued when her beloved older brother, Richard, comes home suddenly with a handsome, enigmatic stranger in tow. What Evie doesn’t know is that Mr. James Benedict is actually Richard’s best friend, Benedict Hastings, with whom she had corresponded nearly a decade earlier until he broke her heart with a cruelly worded letter. While Hastings is enchanted with the lively and beautiful Evie, he is wrestling with a dilemma and can’t afford to be distracted. Evie is headstrong and used to getting her own way, a dangerous combination for a man trying to keep his distance from a woman he’s attracted to. Hastings is an excellent hero, charming and refreshingly honest about his feelings. The great reveal and resolution come on abruptly, but the romance is charmingly sweet and tender as Hastings works through years of secrets and sorrow to win his lady. Agent: Deidre Knight, the Knight Agency.
