She’s a fortune-hunter. He’s nobody’s prey.
Adam, Earl of Bexley, lives to work. His only relief is the sordid savagery of bare-knuckle boxing. Not women, and definitely not a disreputable, scheming woman who dances in secret with such passion…
Caro Small is desperate to escape her selfish family. Her only chance is a good marriage, and she intends to marry Adam—whether he likes it or not. But the more she schemes to entrap him, the more she risks trapping her own heart.
Adam won’t be caught by a fortune-hunter’s ambitious schemes. But the vulnerable, passionate woman underneath the plots might just bring him to his knees.
The Secret Heart is the first book in the No Better Angels series.
If you'd like to learn more about Adam's boxing, I've written a couple of blog posts on the topic. You can read about how I used my own experience with jiu jitsu as an inspiration here, or about my research into period boxing here.
