Overview

They're rebels, scoundrels, and blackguards-dark, dashing men on the wrong side of the law. But for the women who love them, a hint of danger only makes the heart beat faster...

"A scandalous proposal."
Christopher Argent lives in the shadows as the empire's most elite assassin. Emotion is something he tossed away years ago, making him one of the most clear-eyed, cold-hearted, wealthiest, and therefore untouchable men in London. But when his latest target turns out to be London's own darling, Millicent LeCour, Christopher's whole world is turned upside down. Overwhelmed by her stunning combination of seduction and innocence, Christopher cannot complete the mission. She has made him "feel" again. Now, he will do anything to save her life, so that he can claim her as his own...

"A perilous passion..."
When Millie learns what Christopher was hired to do, she is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this notorious hunter's arms may be her only path to safety-even if doing so could be the deadliest mistake she's ever made. But how can she resist him? As the heat between her and Christopher burns out of control, danger lurks in the shadows. Is their desire worth the risk? Only the enemy knows what fate has in store...
"Captured me from page one and never let go. Romantic, lush, and suspenseful." -Suzanne Enoch on "The Highwayman"

Byrne follows The Highwayman with a powerful and dramatic second Victorian Rebels romantic thriller. Christopher Argent was born in Newgate; he spent his childhood behind bars and his adulthood as London’s most feared assassin. He believes he has no emotions and doesn’t care about anything, but when he has to kill actress Millie LeCour, he can’t face the thought of destroying her spirit and joy. So he strikes a bargain: protection for her and her son, Jakub, in exchange for one tempestuous night in his bed. Millie is terrified of the coldhearted killer, but she wants to know who wants her dead. Soon she falls in love with the giant who treats Jakub gently and who hide flashes of heat behind his icy mask. Millie wants to save Argent from loneliness, but Argent has to walk a tortured journey of self-discovery before he can accept her love. Their affair was forged out of desperation, but if Argent can shake off the shackles of his past, they can have a happy ending that would rival the best theater. Previous protagonists Farah and Dorian Blackwell have enjoyable cameos in this deeply satisfying story of passion and mutual rescue. Agent: Christine Witthohn, Book Cents Literary Agency. (Feb.)
