Genre: historical romance
Back Cover Blurb:
Little does Chastity realize that after long months of recovering from his war wounds, the handsome Cyn is looking for adventure, and being abducted by a cocky highwayman—obviously a lovely woman in disguise—is even more than he had hoped for. Willingly he is drawn into her devilishly reckless plan...and helplessly he is seduced by her wonderfully wicked ways.
I don’t know who’s more priceless, Cyn or Chas. They’re both such unusual individuals. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these two, and was actually sad when their story ended. They captured my heart immediately, and took me on a wild adventure alongside them. The supporting cast was also quite lively. Beverley developed everyone so completely that I felt as if I had visited with them. I will warn you, however, that this cast of characters will evoke strong reactions in the reader.
This author has the heart of a true bard. Beverley had me entranced from the first page to the last. I’m so glad to have read this novel and can’t wait to read the next in the series.
