About the Book


When Lady Claire Jellicoe agreed to a walk in the moonlight, she never imagined her titled companion might have brutal motives. Nor could she have dreamed up such a brave rescue by the most unexpected savior of all: an inscrutable nobleman with a daring plan of escape—and a deliciously tempting embrace…


Timothy Evans, the Duke of Fenmore, has palmed more treasures than he can count. Even for a man who grew up thieving in London’s stews, a stolen bride should be beyond the pale. But Fenmore won’t let scandal ruin the spirited beauty’s reputation. And now that she’s stolen his heart, how can he ever let her go…?

About the Author
Elizabeth Essex

Elizabeth Essex is a USAToday Bestselling and award-winning author of critically acclaimed historical romance, including the Reckless Brides and Highland Brides series. Her books have been nominated for numerous awards, including the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, the Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice and Seal of Excellence awards, and RWA’s prestigious RITA Award. The Reckless Brides books have also made top-tier lists from Romantic Times, The Romance Reviews, and Affair de Coeur Magazine, and the entire series was awarded Desert Isle Keeper status at All About Romance. Her fifth book, A BREATH OF SCANDAL was awarded Best Historical in the Reader’s Crown 2013.

When not re-reading Jane Austen, mucking about in her garden, or messing about with boats, Elizabeth can be found at her laptop, making up stories about heroes and heroines who live far more exciting lives than she. It wasn’t always so—long before she ever set pen to paper, Elizabeth graduated from Hollins College with a B.A. in Classics and Art History, and then earned her M.A. in Nautical Archaeology from Texas A & M University. While she loved the life of an underwater archaeologist, she has found her true calling writing lush, lyrical historical romance full of passion, daring and adventure.

Elizabeth lives in Texas with her husband, the Indispensable Mr. Essex, her active and exuberant family, and her darling dogs, Ghillie and Brogue, in an old house filled to the brim with books.
