Synopsis

“Claire Delacroix has woven another romantic tale and thrown a twist of the mystical into it. A thoroughly enjoyable read.”
Teresa Sanders for HistoricalRomanceWriters.com


Dear Reader:

It is true that I acted boldly, brazenly, wantonly...and I confess, I have only myself to blame. I knew what sort of man I was dealing with, knew Gawain Lammergeier was a rogue and a thief. Yet when I schemed to seduce him and reclaim what was rightfully mine, I never imagined I would succumb to the charms of this reckless, golden-haired scoundrel.

Make no mistake, I took what I came for — the sacred relic stolen from my father that can restore the fortunes of my keep. I should have been content then, to return home with my prize. Alas, I let desire rule me. For I have dared to tempt Gawain — to best me, bewitch me and even bed me, in pursuit of my treasure.

—Lady Evangeline of Inverfyre

“A delightful romp through medieval times in a game of cat and mouse…THE SCOUNDREL is an enjoyable read; mixed with passion, humor and an unexpected plot that kept me turning the pages.”
Dorine Linnen for Romance Junkies

This edition includes excerpts from THE WARRIOR and KISS OF FIRE.
