Legend says that whomever possesses the St. John talisman ring will find their one true love. Now that the ring rests in the pocket of renowned scoundrel Brandon St. John, the dashing rake must decide whether it is a blessing or a curse.
Never has the irresistible rogue, Brandon St. John, pursued a woman with more fervorbut his ardent suit of Lady Verena Westforth has a different purpose. The delectable blond lovely is indeed enticing, but Brandon suspects her of hiding a valuable missive that he has sworn to recover. With a sensuous kiss and a passionate caress he intends to lower Verenas guard and then discover where shes hidden the goods.
Without the missive, Verena stands to lose the one thing dearest to her heart. And now an extraordinary man has entered her life at the worst possible time! Vulnerable though she may be, Verena vows she will not be just another of Brandons conquests, even as she aches to melt in his arms. But is he a needed friend or a foe in alluring disguise and will she be able to prove to him that love is their true destiny?
Karen Hawkins was raised in Tennessee, a member of a huge extended family that included her brother and sister, an adopted sister, numerous foster siblings and various exchange students. In order to escape the chaos (and whilst hiding when it was her turn to do the dishes), she would huddle under the comforter on her bed with a flashlight and a book, a habit she still embraces to this day.
