"Smart and fast-paced with plenty of steam! This writing duo is a powerhouse of talent!" - NYT Bestselling Author, Sophie Jordan

He stole their riches, she stole his heart.

The cold and aloof Marquess of Hawksfield is the worst peer in London. He has no friends, no fortune, and no time for fools. The dissolute ways of the ton disgust him. But when Archer assumes the identity of the mysterious and devilish Masked Marauder, he is free to do as he pleases.

Sheltered heiress Lady Briannon Findlay is a wallflower, and prefers it that way. Until she meets the nefarious Masked Marauder, a gentleman thief waylaying carriages from London to Essex, who awakens sensual impulses she never knew she had. Provocative and darkly attractive, his artful seduction leaves her wanting more.

When Brynn discovers that Archer and the Masked Marauder are one and the same, trust and attraction collide. But after a murder is committed by an imposter marauder, they must risk everything to find the real killer...including their love.

My Rogue, My Ruin ~ 4 stars

A book genre I don’t read very often is ‘Historical Romance’. I’m not so sure why, because I love to read about relationships in a time setting so different from ours. Marriage for love wasn’t the norm back in those days; it was about duty to the family and the expecta ...more

I received this book as a prize in a random genre competition and found it hard to put this down. In fact, I stopped reading another book to make time for this one.

This is a real different book at the start as this book has a duo of authors. I think this is a cute way to go. I like it. Brynn has a problem with breathing. She sneaks away to ride as a boy that would kill her mother. She meets Archer, a Marquess, an old child friend. Eloise is a ward of the Duke ...more

I found this book to be intriguing, as it was both a romance, and a mystery, and the two elements blended very well together.

That was fun! I enjoyed the writing, the characters, the banter (Brynn and Archer give as good as they get) and the romance.

OUR HERO is the obvious highwayman written in the blurb, for whatever reason you will have to read this story, but I can tell you that he is feeling extremely guilty for his father's crimes/sins and tries to make up for them by doing a robin hood stunt. Like most heroes we meet, this one has sworn n ...more

Amalie Howard

About the author

Award Winning Author

Amalie Howard

Amalie Howard grew up in Trinidad & Tobago where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees, and dreaming of adventure. 25 countries, surfing with sharks, and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts. An aspiring writer from a young age, Amalie’s poem “The Candle,” written at age twelve, was published by the University of Warwick press. At fifteen, she was a recipient of a Royal Commonwealth Society Essay Award (a global youth writing competition). A Colby College graduate, she completed dual Honors Theses in both French and International Studies, and graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. At Colby, she was cited for her research contribution to Raffael Scheck’s article, “German Conservatism and Female Political Activism in the Early Weimar Republic,” and his subsequent book, Mothers of the Nation. She also received a distinction in English Literature from the University of Cambridge (A-levels) as well as a postgraduate certificate in French Literature from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. Traveling the globe, she has worked as a research assistant, account executive, and global channel sales director for a Fortune 500 company. She is the award-winning author of several young adult novels critically acclaimed by Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, SLJ, VOYA, and Booklist, including Waterfell, The Almost Girl, and Alpha Goddess, a Spring 2014 Kid’s INDIE NEXT title. Her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller, and the sequel, Bloodcraft, was a national silver IPPY medalist and a silver Moonbeam award winner. She is also the co-author of the adult historical romance series, THE LORDS OF ESSEX. As an author of color and a proud supporter of diversity in fiction, her articles on multicultural fiction have appeared in The Portland Book Review and on the popular Diversity in YA blog. She currently resides in Colorado with her husband and three children.

Angie Morgan

Angie is the author of several young adult and middle grade books, including The Beautiful and the Cursed, The Lovely and the Lost, and The Wondrous and the Wicked (written under the name Page Morgan) and Everlasting and The Eternal Sea, and two Suzanna Snow Mystery novels (written under her real name, Angie Frazier). Critically acclaimed by Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Kirkus, School Library Journal, VOYA, and The Bulletin, Angie’s novels have been an IndieNext selection, a Seventeen Magazine Summer Book Club Read, and a #1 Amazon bestseller. A lover of history and romance, and with a number of bookshelves stuffed with paperback romance novels by her favorite historical romance authors — Sarah MacLean, Julia Quinn, Elizabeth Hoyt, Eloisa James, Tessa Dare, Lisa Kleypas, Sabrina Jeffries, and so many more — Angie has finally taken the leap into adult romance. My Rogue, My Ruin is the first of three books in her new Lords of Essex series, co-written with her good friend and fellow author, Amalie Howard. Angie lives in New Hampshire with her husband, their three daughters, and a menagerie of pets. When she isn’t writing, she’s either reading, training for a half marathon, cooking, shuttling her children to school, dance, and gymnastics, or — if she’s lucky — sleeping.
