about this book: A Regency Noir, a darker historical romance set in London.

The Duke of Stirkton, Max, is tortured by his past and his upbringing by his grandfather, a controlling and evil man who made Max's life a misery. Thankfully, his grandfather is dead and Max is free to make retribution to all the women he, and his grandfather, wronged.

Though Max has searched for the mysterious lady given to him for a night by his grandfather, he is stunned when the tables are turned and she finds him instead. Though the countess isn't interested in Max's desire to set the past to rights and relieve his guilt. Her only reason for confronting his is to save her sisters and then leave again.

While reading stories of families in the early 1800s, I'm always shocked to discover how many men in positions of power and authority were truly evil, though that was how society worked back then. Men, especially aristocrats, had absolute power over women.

Carina is a strong woman whose husband is, also thankfully, dead. She is now free to save her sisters from the life she was sold into by the men in her life. Women were chattels used as bargaining chips, and young and virginal women were pushed into arranged marriages, often with men who were very much older than them.

Many wives died in childbirth so men were often married two, three, four, or more times in their quest to produce strong offspring who could carry on the family lines. And to be fair to Max, my tortured duke, it was his grandfather's obsession with keeping their family name and legacy strong and enduring. The idea of marrying for dynasty was beaten into Max and his wife chosen for him, so in many ways he was as helpless as Carina until he reached his majority.

So now I write romances that show that despite the harsh upbringing and arranged marriages many aristocratic children were forced to accept, occasionally there was a love match and a happy ending.
