Jane Feather grew up in the New Forest in the South of England, where she developed an abiding interest in historical romance through the books of Daphne du Maurier, Georgette Heyer, and, of course, the arbiter of them all, Jane Austen. After her marriage she and her husband moved to Oxford, where she completed a Masters degree in Applied Social Studies. She then moved with her husband, three small children, an eight week old puppy and an ancient cat, lock, stock and barrel to Montclair, New Jersey. She worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the grittier parts of Newark and East Orange until they moved again to Washington DC where, influenced by a closet full of romances in a vacation house on the Outer Banks, she decided to take a sabbatical from social work and try her hand at writing romances… a very different prospect from writing Social Inquiry Reports and case notes. And, as they say, the rest is history. She has now just begun her 47th novel and negotiates space in a house on the Chesapeake Bay with her husband and five cats.

Half French, half English, William is committed to his shadow life, flirting with death to rescue imperiled aristocrats. Marriage is an indulgence he cannot afford. Once Hero returns to London, he refuses to risk her good name by continuing their liaison. But he has reckoned without the determined Hero’s disregard for propriety…or the dictates of his own heart.
