The pompous laughter of Baron William Hargreaves assaults her ears. “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.” His hand drifts to the immaculate cravat at his throat as he sneers at her, one supercilious eyebrow raised.
Weary of exchanging volleys with the Baron, Caroline Burgess leaves the ball, despairing of her attraction to a man she can never have, nor the dreams he inspires. No matter what he says to her, Caroline recognizes the longing in his eyes, matched with a secret longing of her own.
Baron Hargreaves tries to hide his growing attraction to the beautiful blond, rumored to be wealthier than the Queen herself. After all, it would never do for him to attach himself to an actress. An actress! Scandalous!
But William suffers a blow to his own reputation at the revelation of a product of a youthful indiscretion. Just as he begins to understand who he is and find the answers he has searched for, Caroline shoots a man to death in full daylight on a London street.
Can William rescue himself and Caroline from their own recklessness before they are torn apart forever?
The third book in the Touch the Sky series, His Wicked Lady, due to be released in 2016.
