Which were more dangerous—his secret desires. . . or her own?
Cruel false gossip and scandal follow Velvet Campbell everywhere she goes in London—and for the sake of her sanity she must get away. Accepting a position as governess at an estate in remote Cornwall, Velvet hopes to start over, untainted by rumor. But she finds to her dismay that her new employer—the darkly handsome Lucian Pendar—is, himself, the subject of whispered insinuations . . . that he hurled his wife to her death from nearby treacherous cliffs.
But angel or demon, Lucian affects Velvet in ways she never dreamed possible, causing her heart to race, stealing the breath from her body with a look. As their mutual attraction grows, there is no resisting the passion that flares between them. Yet, as secrets from both their pasts rise to the surface, Velvet is haunted by one inescapable question: has she found a kindred spirit, her destined love . . . or placed herself in dire peril?

“A firecracker of a book! Tainted by Temptation grabs the classic gothic romance by the scruff of the neck, gives it a good shake and sets it ablaze to heat up bookshelves everywhere.
—Anna Campbell, author of My Reckless Surrender
Katy Madison makes a truly spectacular Avon Romance debut with Tainted by Temptation, a deeply emotional tale of a desperate woman and a man with nothing left to lose. A novel with the haunting, gothic feel of the best of Amanda Quick, this stunning historical romance, set in Victorian England against the backdrop of the Cornwell cliffs, is alive with vivid and unforgettable characters—and will thrill and captivate fans of dark, brooding heroes and star-crossed loves. About the Author:
Katy Madison has always loved stories and books. As a child she was always lugging a book around. In third grade, she fell in love with the romance genre when her mother fed her voracious appetite for books with a romance novel. Sidetracked by real life, a husband, kids, and a career at The Kansas City Star, where she authored a few incident reports and a system manual, she returned to her love of the genre with her gothic romance, Tainted by Temptation.
Katy makes her home on a tree-lined street in Kansas City, Missouri, and thinks there is nothing better than curling up in front of the fireplace with a good book while a storm rages outside.
