Lord of Scandal


My new Regency historical, Lord of Scandal, is out in US book shops on Friday and is also available from Amazon!

Synopsis

Ben Hawksmoor is dangerous to know, a celebrity in the Regency firmament, a friend of Prinny, the lover of the most notorious courtesan in London and an all round scoundrel whose only aim in life is to make money and make sure he never returns to the gutters from which he came.

Catherine Fenton is an heiress, a nabob's daughter whose only aim is to keep her unhappy family together and save her stepmother from disgrace.
When Ben and Catherine meet the sensual attraction between them is explosive. But when Ben compromises Catherine's reputation and thinks to force her into marriage he discovers that the nabob's daughter - and her fortune - will not fall into his arms without a fight.

Can a man…
Who has always believed that everything has a price...
Who wantonly seduces a debutante for revenge...
Who will never risk his heart...
Ever find true love? And does he deserve the one woman who can show him that some things in life are worth more than money?


Review

"Nicola Cornick knows her period well, and in it she pairs a handsome, dangerous lord, well known for his scandalous reputation, with an innocent but not quite malleable heiress. Readers wil relish this sensual and emotional love story and its unexpected climax." Romantic Times BookClub Magazine
