Urgently on her way to the earl of Exmoor's estate, Nicola
Falcourt's carriage is waylaid by a notorious highwayman
known as The Gentleman. But there is nothing gentlemanly
about the masked bandit's breathless kiss.
The stranger believes Nicola is the wife of Richard
Montford, earl of Exmoor, whom he despises and is intent on
destroying. But he could not be more mistaken, for Nicola
bears no love for the cruel earl who'd killed the only man
she'd ever loved.
Determined to uncover the rogue's real identity and his
reasons for bringing down the earl, Nicola gets perilously
close to him. But to save those she loves, she'll have to
put all her trust in a man as dangerous as he is desirable.
