She raced across the pasture, vaulted a fence, and landed, stunned and breathless, on top of the most handsome man she had ever seen. The bemused stranger stayed to capture the fancy of the brood of orphaned children in her charge, then stole Lauren Hill's heart with a searing kiss as he left. Lauren couldn't tell him she was a widowed countess fallen on hard times. She tried to forget him--until she saw him again at a London ball. The man who haunted her dreams was a duke, out of her class...and he was pledged to another woman.
The ton is ablaze with talk of the ravishing Bavarian countess. Stunned, Alexander Christian, Duke of Sutherland, recognizes Lauren as the country girl who's captured his heart. Duty has forced him to pledge himself to another, to take his proper place in society and in Parliament. He wants one night with his blue-eyed enchantress, but will he be able to walk away from her again, or will he risk it all to be with the woman who fires his blood and makes him think of a . . . Wicked Angel.

From the Author
Wicked Angel, my second book, follows the Duke of Sutherland, Alex Christian, a character I hope you met in The Devil's Love. In Wicked Angel, Alex--who is normally the soul of propriety--finds himself in an explosive predicament.
It begins when he is out hunting one day and is stunned by a young woman who hurls herself across a fence and lands on him. As the fog begins to clear, he sees the world's most angelic face above him. Lauren Hill, the recently widowed countess of Bergen, actually lands on him quite by accident...because he was smack-dab in the way of her frantic escape from an old, irate sow.
Naturally, the enchantment sparked by their unusual encounter flares. But there is one teeny, tiny problem...Alex is engaged to be married soon. Caught by an unearthly desire for an angel who makes his pulse race, his is in mortal trouble...
Whew! And exactly what is a duke supposed to do? I have a pretty good idea... You, on the other hand, will have to read the book to find out (hahaha)! But I really think you'll have a wonderful time if you do!
