Dear Readers, I’d like to introduce you to Fallon and Warrick, the characters in my upcoming If You Give a Rake a Ruby. Fallon is one of the notorious Three Diamonds, Regency England’s most glamorous courtesans. She’s the most mysterious of the three, and she wants to keep her past shrouded in secrecy. Warrick is a spy for the Crown, and he’s been targeted by a vicious crime lord. Fallon has information Warrick needs, and he has no compunction about blackmailing her for it. They meet in her bedroom, when Fallon climbs into bed and finds Warrick already there.

I do not think I can forgive you this one, Pelham. Why have you not introduced me to the good friend of your wife, the Duchess of Pelham (formerly the Duchess of Dalliance)? I had occasion to meet with Fallon, AKA the Marchioness of Mystery, this evening, and I must say she is rather more than I expected. Smart, cunning, beautiful…exasperating. I am not at liberty to reveal the nature of our business, but suffice it to say, I do believe Fallon may have the key to the “diamonds” you and I have been looking for. Perhaps after I find the man holding the diamonds, Fallon and I will become better acquainted.

No, no, Old Boy. Do not warn me about my mother. The countess would undoubtedly suffer an apoplexy if I took up with a courtesan, but that is part of the fun, is it not? If you see your wife’s friend, do put in a good word for me, won’t you? It might smooth her ruffled feathers as far as the small issue of blackmail.


Genre: Historical
Length: 352 pages
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (March 5, 2013)

Fallon, the Marchioness of Mystery, is a celebrated courtesan with her finger on the pulse of high society. She’s adored by men, hated by their wives. No one knows anything about her past, and she plans to keep it that way.

Warrick Fitzhugh will do anything to protect his compatriots in the Foreign Office, including seduce Fallon, who he thinks can lead him to the deadliest crime lord in London. He knows he’s putting his life on the line . . .

To Warrick’s shock, Fallon is not who he thinks she is, and the secrets she’s keeping are exactly what make her his heart’s desire . . .
