In the second novel in USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evansâs sexy Disgraced Lords series, two very independent souls find themselves fighting to resist a deepening passion. When Beatrice Hennessey sets out to confront Lord Coldhurst, the notorious rogue who killed her brother in a duel, her intent is to save her family from destitution. Sheâs determined to blackmail the man into a loveless marriage. Sheâll make the wealthy Lord Coldhurst pay for the rest of his life. But while greeting his ship, Beatrice takes a tumble into the Thamesâonly to be fished out by a pair of strong masculine arms that tempt her to stay locked in their heated embrace forever. That is, until she realizes those arms belong to Sebastian Hawkestone, Lord Coldhurst himself. The little drowned mermaid has an interesting proposition indeed; one that Sebastian is surprised to find quite agreeable. Although heâs had women more beautiful, she is pleasing to the eye, and besides, itâs time he fathered an heir. Beatrice promises to be the ideal wife; a woman who hates him with an all-consuming passion is far too sensible to expect romance. However, it isnât long before Sebastianâs plan for a marriage of convenience unravels, and heâs caught up in the exhilarating undertow of seduction.

Lady Marisa Hawkestoneâs nightmare is just beginning when she wakes up naked, with no memory of the night before, lying next to Maitland Spencer, the Duke of Lyttletonâa man so aloof and rational heâs nicknamed âthe Cold Duke.â A scandal ensues, in which Marisaâs beloved beau deserts her. As a compromised woman, Marisa agrees to marry Maitland. But on her wedding night, Marisa discovers the one place the duke shows emotion: in the bedroom, where the man positively scorches the sheets. Taught from a young age to take duty seriously, Maitland cannot understand his new wifeâs demands on his love and affection. Marisaâs hot-blooded spirit, however, does have its attractionsâespecially at night. In retrospect, it seems quite silly that he didnât marry sooner.

I penned the Kingdom series to help young people get excited about the supremely significant story of Jesus Christ and His mission to save mankind.â âChuck Black From the Trade Paperback edition.
