In this sparkling first installment of her popular “Saint of Seven Dials” series, Brenda Hiatt has created “a most different and dashing rogue,” according to bestelling author Kasey Michaels.
To escape her stepmother’s matchmaking machinations, Lady Pearl runs away, pretending to be a common housemaid, with the help of her abigail. When she is rescued from near disaster by a charming serving-man, Pearl pretends to be simpleminded to safeguard herself from any unwanted advances. But soon she begins to suspect that her rescuer is far more than the common servant he seemed at first.
Luke St. Clair lives a double life, pretending to be a gentleman while in reality sustaining himself and the needy as that notorious Regency Robin Hood, the Saint of Seven Dials. The last thing Luke needs in his life is a beautiful simpleton in need of protection, but “Purdy” soon proves to be anything but simple–or common! Once he learns the truth, does he dare continue, in the ballrooms of the elite, the flirtation that began in the slums of London? The risk is enormous, but Lady Pearl’s sweet kisses may just be worth it.
