About this title: Frances Atherton had come to London to expose the brazen plot that sent her father to prison. But she never imagined that she, too, would be held captive--by the charms of London's most scandalous playwright and fascinating rake. Devastatingly handsome Lord David Landry had charmed any number of women, and made it clear that Frances was next. Why did such a sensible woman find herself helpless in his arms--only to endanger her mission and her heart?
Ah, the renown of Londontown! Oh, the shame of Drury Lane!
She didn't know she'd come face to face with one of England's most notorious rakes. She only knew the golden-haired stranger who came to her rescue as David. Miss Frances Atherton, country parson's daughter, had a lot to learn about London's wicked city ways.
But not even David's brash charms could distract her from her purpose; to trap the Blue Specter, the infamous smuggler for whose crimes her own father had been imprisoned. The trail was hot and led to Drury Lane, where she trod the boards as an actress--a shocking profession for a lady. But more shocking still was the discovery that David-Lord Laundry-was the most renowned and scandalous playwright of the day.
