But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor
Regency England, from 1811 to 1820, was a time of propriety, social class consciousness, restrained grace in all things, and passionate romances.  In this period romance, the heroine happens upon a sketch book of nude studies, which opens her eyes to the winning attributes of the kind of rogue she had hoped to avoid.

Here's the set-up:

A Dead Man's Debt - a story of blackmail, duty and an unexpected love. 

After publically humiliating a suitor, Miss Celeste Armitage is sent from the Ton in disgrace and resolves never to marry. But when she comes across a sketch book of nude studies and discovers the artist is her hostess's eldest son, Lord Ranulf Charing, she finds herself dangerously attracted to exactly the sort of rogue she is sworn to avoid. 

Nothing is as it seems. Lord Ranulf's life is a facade and he is being blackmailed over his late brother's debts. But just as the darkly restless Ranulf unexpectedly learns to love, the vengeful fury of his nemesis unleashed. 

In order to protect Celeste, Lord Ranulf faces a stark choice between duty and true love...
However Ranulf has underestimated Miss Armitage's stubborn resolve to clear his name, and in so doing places the woman he loves in mortal danger...

A Dead Man's Debt is historical romance at its best. With this novel, you will find a poignant story about an untrusting woman, a notorious rake and the love that brings them both to their knees. This is a novel that should not be missed!
