Overview
A ZEBRA SHOUT FRESH NEW ROMANCE

"Her characters come alive with warmth and purpose." --Jodi Thomas, New York Times bestselling author

Broken Promise, Broken Heart

Aidan Somerville, Duke of Forster, is a rake, a spy, and a soldier, richer than sin and twice as handsome. Now he is also guardian to his deceased best friend's young son. The choice makes perfect sense--except that the child's mother is the lovely Sophia Gardiner, to whom Aidan was engaged before he went off to war. When the news reached him that she had married another, his ship had not yet even left the dock.

Sophia does not expect Aidan to understand or forgive her. But she cannot allow him to stay her enemy. She's prepared for coldness, even vengeance--but not for the return of the heedless lust she and Aidan tumbled into ten years ago. She knows the risks of succumbing to this dangerous desire. Still, with Aidan so near, it's impossible not to dream about a second chance...

Debut author Miless reluctant duke is set on revenge against the woman who jilted him, and he sets out to make her paywith passionin this cozily scrumptious historical romance, the first in a Regency-era series. Orphaned Sophia had promised herself to Aidan, the third son of a duke, but she married his best friend soon after Aidan went off to war. A decade later, Aidan has the title and a quiet career with the Home Officeand has been named co-guardian of the widowed Sophias son. All his schemes for making Sophia pay for throwing him over fly out the window when she is threatened by a shadowy foe. The normally formulaic foundation of period pieces is tweaked with just enough intrigue to set this novel apart from others of the genre. Rather than focusing on the typical parade of dresses and debutantes, the novel draws readers in with unusual characters and the interplay of secrets and lies. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Sanford Greenburger Associates. (Feb.)
