From the Author
Whee! It's finally out!
I'm so happy to finally be able to share THE BLACK ANGEL with readers. I had a blast writing this book, and even made a research trip to England and Ireland to better understand it. (Well, okay, I wanted to go to the UK and this book was a good excuse.) It's zesty and passionate and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
This is also the beginning of a family series....look for Cassandra's story next summer.
BACK COVER COPY
A Taste of Heaven
Ardor once foolishly led Lady Adriana St. Ives into the arms of a rake, an affair that cost her everything she held dear. Though that was five years ago, this golden English beauty still vows that no man will ever again ignite the sensual passion hidden deep in her soul--not even her new husband, Tynan Spenser, Earl of Glencove, a darkly handsome and rich Irish rogue.
Known as the "Black Angel" for his wild and notorious past, Tynan is as determined to melt his icy bride as she is to resist his seductive charms. Vowing that she will be his in just one hundred kisses, Tynan sets out to win her with a kiss each day--a challenge Riana is sure she can withstand. But the willful beauty has no idea of the power of a single kiss...
