Sidonie Forsythe and Jonas Merrick meet as enemies in his half-ruined castle on the Devon cliffs. When he offers her a bargain – seven nights in his bed to save her sister from disaster, she accepts, not realizing that over the course of a week, she’ll discover a man like no other and a love that will defy their world. At the end of SEVEN NIGHTS IN A ROGUE’S BED, Sidonie and Jonas find their happy ending. Jonas and Sidonie are briefly separated in A RAKE’S MIDNIGHT KISS, book 2 of Sons of Sin (September 2013), when Jonas’s friends Camden Rothermere, the Duke of Sedgemoor, and Sir Richard Harmsworth ask for his help. It’s during this time that they exchange these letters.

Forgive me for basking in my good fortune, but I think I’ve almost become inured to the joy of having you and our lovely little Consuela in my life. I’m sure I haven’t stopped lately to tell you how grateful I am for the gifts of you and our daughter.
When we met, I was a man who had turned his back on any possibility of love. But you, wise Sidonie, knew better. You were stubborn, my love, and I thank God – and you – every day for that stubbornness. If I were to tell you what you mean to me, I’d need the words of a poet and the soul of a mystic, but never imagine that you’re anything less than the beating heart of my life. I love you, Sidonie, and I always will.
This will make you smile, darling. I think Richard may have met the woman who will change his life just as you changed mine. He’s certainly in more of a lather about Genevieve Barrett, the vicar’s daughter here, than I’ve ever seen him. He’s usually so cool and uninvolved, as you know, when he sets his sights on a new conquest. And you’ll laugh at this – it seems Miss Barrett is immune to his famous charm. I wonder if he’s embarked on the journey to love that gave us so much joy and anguish before we found safe harbor with each other.
I close with sending you every ounce of love in the world, my sweet wife. Sleep soundly and I’ll be back by your side before you have the chance to miss me.
Kisses from her besotted papa to that minx in the making, Consuela.
Your loving husband

WILL A WEEK OF SEDUCTION . . .
Desperate to save her sister's life, Sidonie Forsythe has agreed to submit herself to a terrible fate: Beyond the foreboding walls of Castle Craven, a notorious, hideously scarred scoundrel will take her virtue over the course of seven sinful nights. Yet instead of a monster, she encounters a man like no other. And during this week, she comes to care for Jonas Merrick in ways that defy all logic-even as a dark secret she carries threatens them both.
. . . SPARK A LIFETIME OF PASSIONATE SURRENDER?
Ruthless loner Jonas knows exactly who he is. Should he forget, even for a moment, the curse he bears, a mere glance in the mirror serves as an agonizing reminder. So when the lovely Sidonie turns up on his doorstep, her seduction is an even more delicious prospect than he originally planned. But the hardened outcast is soon moved by her innocent beauty, sharp wit, and surprising courage. Now as dangerous enemies gather at the gate to destroy them, can their new, fragile love survive?
