Constance Campbell, the Duchess of Kilmaine, once believed that all she needed in life was a duke. But everything unraveled when she realized her perfect husband was a perfect monster. Now broken beyond repair, she hides her misery behind a perfect Society mask...even from her childhood friend, Alec.

Dr. Alec McGuinness reluctantly finds himself back in Scotland, and checking up on the only woman to ever get under his skin, Connie. After she spurned him many years ago, he knows his humble life as a doctor could never be enough for her. But when the Duke of Kilmaine is murdered in cold blood, with Connie sleeping right next to him in bed, Alec knows he must protect Connie at all costs from those who would frame her for the duke’s murder.

Now on the run, Connie feels a freedom she only ever dreamed about before, and an unexpected attraction to the man who is keeping her safe. But even if they can win her freedom and clear her name, could she ever open her heart up to someone again?

“This story is what I imagine a penny dreadful would read like – murder, mayhem, mystery, villains and shocking conclusions. The mystery was really good and Ms. Michaels throws in a lot of red herrings. Even though I figured it out close to the end but was only partially correct, the mystery was so good.” -Angela D., Goodreads

“What a fabulous story!!  Romance?  Yes!  Memorable but different characters?  YES!  A story that will keep you reading long into the night?  Oh yes!  This tale will hook you until the very end and surprise you then too.  What a mystery and what a twisty, turny mystery.  So well written!!  You will love this book.” -Marlene S., Goodreads

“This book was not only a romance, as it was filled with suspense up until the very end. The fragility of Connie was difficult to read at the start, but her situation was dealt with in a compassionate manner. Her strength slowly shone through and this paralleled with the sensitivity of Alec – two well-balanced characters.” -S.H., Goodreads

Such a twisty read!” -Alicia M., Goodreads

“Connie and Alec had a wonderful story filled with adventure and mystery. The author really kept the suspense of who did it until the very last. A delightful romance.” -Dulce H., NetGalley

“This was a wonderful addition to the Saints & Scoundrels series. I can't wait to see what comes next!” -Amy A., NetGalley

Connie and Alec's journey was a very different story for me to write - as Connie herself had been through some horrendous experiences, which had impacted upon her to the point where she wasn't as carefree and free spirited as some of my other heroines in past books. So for Connie to heal and get to ...more
