About the Book

Different lives. Different cultures. An insurmountable chasm. But an unconquerable love.

It was impossible, the love that Philip Ashton, Marquess of Kennet, had for Emalyn Benjumeda. Although they had been friends since childhood, Emalyn is the descendant of Andalusian and Moorish wine merchants—a foreigner. A forbidden match. When Philip’s father, the Duke of Kennet, suggests Philip keep Emalyn as his mistress, Philip rebels. He does not want the love of his life as a mistress—he wants her as his wife and the mother of his children.

With their parents against them, and more appropriate matches being lined up for both, Philip and Emalyn struggle to stay together. Desperate enough to ruin them both, Philip turns to an unexpected ally.

What will it take to keep Emalyn in his country—and his life?

About the Author
Abigail Bridges

Abigail Bridges wrote her first historical romance, titled The Belle of the Ball, when she was thirteen. It was, of course, horrid. But it firmly established her love of all things Regency, a mild obsession with Georgette Heyer, and a determination to become a writer. After a master’s degree in English and years of being paid to write and edit other types of material, she has returned to her first love. She is busily binge-reading all her favorite authors, resuming her study of the history and culture of the Regency era, and plotting like a madwoman. She does all this in a small cottage near Birmingham, Alabama.
