Frederica Stanford has loved Hawthorne Stiles for as long as she can remember. But a merchant’s daughter can never hope to secure the notice of an earl’s son. She doesn’t know that Hawthorne, a man with a passion for justice, has always been captivated by the spirited young woman who grew up near his father’s estate.

Plagued by guilt over his part in a childhood prank which left her traumatized, Hawthorne vows to protect Frederica from rakes and libertines during her first London Season. When Frederica unearths a dark secret about her lineage, it sets in motion a chain of events which leads to tragedy. Hawthorne, now a renowned magistrate, comes to her aid and they surrender to their shared passion.

But when Hawthorne’s career, and life, are threatened, Frederica is faced with a choice. She must make the ultimate sacrifice to save the man she loves, knowing that in doing so, she risks losing his love forever.

About the Author
Emily Royal

Emily Royal grew up in Sussex, England, and has devoured romantic novels for as long as she can remember. A mathematician at heart, Emily has worked in financial services for over twenty years. She indulged in her love of writing after she moved to Scotland, where she lives with her husband, teenage daughters and menagerie of rescue pets including Twinkle, an attention-seeking boa constrictor.

She has a passion for both reading and writing romance with a weakness for Regency rakes, Highland heroes, and Medieval knights. Persuasion is one of her all-time favorite novels which she reads several times each year and she is fortunate enough to live within sight of a Medieval palace.

When not writing, Emily enjoys playing the piano, hiking, and painting landscapes, particularly the Highlands. One of her ambitions is to paint, as well as climb, every mountain in Scotland.
