Author: Delilah Marvelle

Delilah Marvelle spent her youth studying various languages, reading voraciously, and playing the pianoforte. She confesses that here ends the extent of her gentle breeding. She was a naughty child who was forever torturing her parents with countless adventures that they did not deem respectable. Confined to her room on many occasions due to these misadventures, she discovered the quill and its amazing power. Soon, to the dismay of her parents, she rather enjoyed being confined to her room and finished writing her first historical romance (which was a heart stopping 800 pages long...) at the age of 14.

What would you risk to hold onto a love that only happens once?

CALCUTTA, INDIA - 1833

Jemdanee Kumar is living beyond the seams of her soul trying to erase the one and only man who continues to haunt her body and mind: Mr. Ridley. She knows he is coming for her despite trying to bury him.

When he arrives into Calcutta, he begins to knot her into everything he is by making them both kneel to the passion neither of them can tame. Will the ropes stretch far enough to break the bond? Or will it tighten and twist them into a peril too dangerous to embrace?

Themes include humor, mystery, and romance. Lots of it!
