HIS WICKED LADY
Book #3 in the Touch The Sky series…
“I say, where did you find such a dress, or should I say mess? I thought even in America one would know such a garish garment would be ridiculed.” Baron William Hargreaves taunts Miss Caroline Burgess with his pompous laughter. His aristocratic fingers stroke the immaculate cravat at his throat as he sneers at her, one supercilious eyebrow raised.
Baron William Hargreaves, arbiter of all things fashionable, loves nothing more than firing his derisive salvos of at his favorite target—the wealthy American, Miss Caroline Burgess, newly come to London society and the fading glory of the Ton.
Caroline would never admit she enjoyed their skirmishes. Nor will she admit to the dreams he inspires, or the sensations he stirs deep inside her.
But he was the one man she can never allow herself to love.
Baron Hargreaves tries his best to hide his growing attraction to the beautiful blonde, rumored to be wealthier than the Queen herself, while his sisters despair of him ever finding a wife. Circumstances keep pulling the Baron and the American heiress together, in spite of their efforts to stay away from each other.
But when Caroline outrageously accepts a role onstage, she ousts herself as an actress—an unforgiveable profession for a lady of the Ton.
A blow to his own reputation overshadows William’s delight in her predicament: the revelation of a product of a youthful indiscretion.
When Caroline shoots a man to death in full daylight on a London street, a future with William—or any other man—becomes nothing more than the dream it should have remained all along.
Or does it?
