A lady desiring vengeance seeks a highwayman's help in this tale by an author whose novels are "the gold standard in historical romance" (Lisa Kleypas). Lady Leigh Strachan's father governed the town of Felchester--until a religious zealot murdered her family and turned the village into hell on Earth. Now, there is room in her heart for only one thing: revenge. Leigh plans to kill her father's murderer once she learns to aim a pistol, slash a sword, and ride a horse. She seeks out the Prince of Midnight, a legendary highwayman exiled to France, as her choice of tutors. But the man she finds in a crumbling French castle is no hero. Half deaf and suffering from vertigo, S. T. Maitland can scarcely walk, much less wield a sword atop a dancing stallion. Yet for reasons she can't explain, she remains with him, steeling her heart against the sight of his gold-streaked hair, green eyes, and brows adorned with a devilish curl at the arch . . . Women mean nothing but trouble to the highwayman, so he wishes Leigh were less alluring. Alas, she is beautiful, with a piercing gaze and a determined spirit. Despite his broken balance, the loss of his horse, and the price on his head, he vows to return to England with her. He cannot resist the challenge--or the chance to sacrifice everything for love . . . The New York Times-bestselling author of Flowers from the Storm and Shadowheart, Laura Kinsale writes an "unfailingly brilliant and beautiful" romance (Julia Quinn).
