three unrepentant scoundrels infamous for being perilous to love...Handsome as the devil and twice as tempting, Robin 'Puck' Blackthorn lives for the pleasures of the moment. His only rule - never dally with an innocent woman. But when an encounter at a masquerade ball leaves him coveting the one woman who refuses to succumb to his charms, Puck realises that some rules were made to be broken...Scandalised to discover that the masked man with whom she'd shared a dance is the ton's most celebrated rake, Regina Hackett vows to keep her distance. Yet when her dear friend vanishes, it is to Puck that Regina must turn. And as they embark on a dangerous journey through London's darkest alleys, Regina will discover that beneath Puck's roguish facade lies a man who will stop at nothing to protect her...--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
