After being abandoned by her almost-betrothed, Caroline Nash vows to never again get involved with a man. Especially not the middle-aged earl her father has chosen for her. The man is a pompous ass and one of Prinny’s set who only wants her for her dowry. To complicate matters, a kiss from the Midnight Marauder unleashes an unbelievable passion that Caroline can’t seem to forget.

Stephan, the Marquis of Kendrick, poses as the robbing marauder to avenge his low-born mother. But he starts questioning his plans when one of his “missions” crosses paths with Caroline and leads to the kiss of a lifetime. Stephan senses that this proper miss is more fiery than he expected and he wants more.

To be properly introduced to the woman of his dreams, he attends the Prince Regent’s house party. He finds her, begging a friend to pretend to court her – to fend off the man her father has chosen. Stephan couldn’t wish for a better opportunity – he’ll happily court her, but he doesn’t want to pretend. Their connection is sizzling, but can this charade become something real once Stephan’s secrets are revealed?

Praise

“This book was everything a historical romance should be! The banter between Caroline and Stephen was extremely well written and funny at times, but the whole book together? Definitely a must read. It was accurate and flowed perfectly for the time period.” -Brittany R. Goodreads

“I really enjoyed Stephan and Caroline's story! The bantering between them had me laughing out loud. I'm excited to see what Breeding comes up with next!” -Amy A., NetGalley

“The book had a bit of mystery, a bit of adventure, and lots of romance.  The perfect combination for an enjoyable read.” -Debbie D., Goodreads

A perfect escapist read!” -Janette D., NetGalley

“This was a fun book to read. It was well written, fast paced and kept the reader’s attention. The story line was amusing, full of drama, and has some unsuspecting twists.” -Traci B., Goodreads

“Full of mystery and suspense but sprinkled with snobbery, protocol, and, of course, romance. Be ready to get swept away!” -Mary A., Goodreads

“What a delightful read!  There was intrigue, deception, loads of criminal activity and in the end, love shines through for a fairy tale ending.” -Marlne S., NetGalley

Loved Caroline and Stephan's story. Hated the spelling and possible pronunciation of Stephan's name. What Englishman of the Regency period, short of having a French mother, has the name Stephan?
