Add to Wish List
To escape her stepmother, the duchessâ€™s matchmaking
machinations, Lady Pearl Moreston runs away, pretending to
be a common housemaid, with the help of her abigail. When
she is rescued from the near-disaster of recognition by a
charming serving-man, Pearl pretends to be simpleminded to
safeguard herself from any unwanted advances. But soon she
begins to suspect that her rescuer is far more than the
common servant he seemed at first.
Luke St. Clair lives a double life, pretending to be a
gentleman while in reality sustaining himself and the needy
as the notorious Robin Hood-type thief, the Saint of Seven
Dials. The last thing he needs in his life is a beautiful
simpleton in need of protection. But â€śPurdyâ€ť proves to be
anything but simpleâ€”or common! Once he learns the truth,
does he dare continue, in the ballrooms of the elite, the
flirtation that began in the slums of London? The risk is
enormous, but Lady Pearlâ€™s sweet kisses may just be worth
First published by Avon Books in 2001, this is the first
of four books about The Saint of Seven Dials, inspired by a
combination of Robin Hood and the Dread Pirate Roberts (for
fans of "The Princess Bride).
