Description

Cheryl Holt dazzled readers around the world with her "Lost Lords of Radcliffe" trilogy. She continues the fun and excitement by telling Chase Hubbard's story... When readers last saw Chase-the most debauched wretch in the world-he was adventuring down the Nile where he ultimately disgraced himself by betraying his best friend. With his life in shambles, he fled Cairo, but what happened to him after he left Egypt? Only Chase could land himself in the most outrageous jam of all... FAITHFUL NEWTON always thought she wanted to be a nun. But as a novitiate at the Sisters of Mercy convent in rural Scotland, she can't ever seem to take her final vows. When she's offered a chance to travel to Rome to visit the Vatican, she happily agrees to make the journey, thinking the trip will push her into a decision. Yet while crossing the Mediterranean, catastrophe leaves her alone, robbed of everything, and abandoned on the north coast of Africa. She's in deep trouble and desperately needs a hero who can protect her and help her return to Britain safe and sound. CHASE HUBBARD has never been anything but a cad and scoundrel. As the bastard son of a French count, he's always had to scrape and scrounge just to get by. A flagrant womanizer and con artist, he enjoys his wicked ways and has never aspired to better behavior. So he has no desire to play the part of hero for anyone. He's content to loaf in Africa, where he's suddenly found the means to live like a king, and he's definitely in no hurry to return to London. But when pious, devout Sister Faithful crosses his path, the pretty, petite virago intrigues him as no other female ever has. With lives on the line and love in the balance, Chase may have finally met the woman who can push him to become the man he was always meant to be...
