“Enjoyed this immensely”
In the gaming hells of eighteenth century London, orphan Caro Worth is leading a double life. By day she plays a proper gentlewoman on the lookout for a wealthy husband. By night she plays the infamous Angelica, her fictional half-sister with a talent for cards and an ability to finance the life her respectable self has built. An introduction to a rich Marquis brings marriage and security within Caro’s grasp…until the arrival of the unpredictable and totally ineligible Mr. Tobias Felton.
Dismayed by Felton’s persistent appearances, shocking frankness, and enigmatic green eyes, Caro watches helplessly as he comes closer than anyone to guessing her secret, but when complete and utter ruin threatens, she finds that Felton’s suspicions just might become her salvation. As the walls she has built to protect herself crumble down around her, Caro learns that no matter how careful your plans, life and love have a habit of falling quite spectacularly out of control!

“Enjoyed this immensely. The intrigue and plot continues at a good pace throughout – I didn’t want to put it down! As usual, the author pays particular attention to historical detail and one is transported back in time immediately. The characters are varied and compelling – I particularly liked Tobias; a rogue yet full of integrity. What’s not to love! This is only the young author’s third novel and they just get better and better. Looking forward to the next one…….”
“Excellent, fun, amusing; a brilliant read!“
“I loved this! Didn’t even know modern authors were writing period novels, but I’m glad I found out! This book has some really un-put-down-able moments. I kept thinking “just one more page…” then found myself starting a new chapter! It’s an ingenious premise and has brilliant characters you can sympathise with, love and loathe. I love that the heroine isn’t perfect and her flaws make her all the more easy to relate to.
I’m really glad I’ve found this author, definitely one to watch!”
