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?

A LADY'S DESPERATE CHOICE
Faced with a forced marriage to a loathsome neighbor, Elizabeth Woolcot can only appeal to her powerful guardian, Nicholas Warring, for aid. Unfortunately, Nicholas, Earl of Ravenworth, is known as the Wicked Earl for good reason. Convicted of murder, he barely escaped hanging. When she meets Nick for the first time, Elizabeth is compelled by his darkly handsome face--and his charismatic manner. But no matter how strong the attraction between them, Elizabeth can never be his, for Nick, although estranged from his wife for years, is married.
As the days progress, Nick's hunger for Elizabeth grows. 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?About the Author:
