A Lady with a Quest...
Cressida Mandeville agrees to Lord Crofton's vile proposal, but secretly she has other plans. She will trick the loathsome man, find her father's hidden wealth, and save her family from ruin. All goes well, until a daring highwayman stops their carriage, whirls Cressida up onto his dark horse, and demands a kiss....A Duke with a Conscience...
Tristan Tregallows, Duke of St. Raven, doesn't plan to rescue a damsel in distress, but he can hardly leave an innocent in Crofton's power. One kiss confirms his prisoner's innocence, but instead of grateful, she is furious. When he discovers that Cressida is on a quest, one that will take her into the darkest parts of Regency society, St. Raven knows he must become her partner and protector. But he doesn't expect the dangers to his heart....

Quothe St. Raven: welcome to hell
The best-intended plan can have unexpected consequences, as Cressida Mandeville learns in Jo Beverley's deliciously sinful escapade, St. Raven. Determined to steal back the family jewels and estate from their unrightful owner, Lord Crofton, Cressida hazards honor and virginity at his hands, only to find herself kidnapped on the road to ruin by Tris Tregallows, the Duke of St. Raven. Stokeley Manor beckonsthe estate house gambled away by her father to Crofton. Behind the mask of the houri, at Raven's side, Cressida risks discovery by Crofton and, more threatening still, risks the loss of her heart to St. Raven. Beverley evokes with devastating precision the decadent splendor of the English country estate in all its hellish debauchery as St. Raven and Cressida pair up amid the ruins of civilized society in search of the treasure her father has lost. Beverley spins a crafty tale of sensuality and suspense as bewitching as the heady brew served up at Stokeley Manor.
