Whether as spies or lovers, the Renegade Royals—illegitimate sons of England's Royal Princes—are bold, skillful, and a force to be reckoned with. . .
A war hero returned from Waterloo should be able to indulge in a bit of bad behavior. Instead, Captain William Endicott is summoned by his father, the Duke of York, to investigate an assassination plot. The unlikely suspect: William's former sweetheart. Will can't believe that innocent Evie Whitney could be mixed up in anything so nefarious. Then again, almost everything about Evie has changed—except for his body's instinctive response to hers. . .
Just as Evie's life is finally coming together, Will saunters back into it. Should she slap him—or seduce him? Even as she tries to decide, scandal pushes her toward marriage with a man she can neither trust nor resist—and into the heart of a deadly conspiracy. . .
