In Restoration England, when a lady’s luck depends on the chivalry of her master, a ravishing young noblewoman escapes to the stage and embraces a life of danger and desire alongside the most charismatic of players.
For years, Lady Katherne Lindsay’s uncle has denied her noble heritage and treated her like a servant. But the night she foils his lecherous plan to steal her virtue, she becomes a suspected murderess with a bounty on her head. To avoid hanging from the king’s gallows, she is forced to take shelter with a dashing actor and play along as his leading lady, despite the constant threat of capture.
Jeremy Hughes is notorious for his performances upon the stage and in the bedchamber. Any wise woman would keep her distance from such an irresistible rogue. But as Lady Katherne blooms into both an accomplished actress and a confident woman, she can’t help giving her whole heart to Jeremy, longing to win him for a lifetime of daring love and passionate adventure.
