Kate Bateman's To Catch an Earl continues her historical Regency Romance Bow Street Bachelors series. Working undercover for London's first official police force, the Bow Street Bachelors have an obligation to serve the city's best interests--even while they're falling for the city's most alluring women... SHE KNOWS HOW TO STEAL A KISS. Alex Harland, Earl of Melton and dedicated rake, never pictured himself as an agent of inquiry. But the thrill of investigation is a challenge he now embraces. When he's asked to pursue the Nightjar, a notorious thief who is reclaiming France's crown jewels, the case throws him into the path of the beautiful and equally elusive Emmy Danvers, reminding him of the only puzzle he's never solved: the identity of the mysterious woman who once stole a kiss from him--and left him wanting so much more...

WILL HE SURRENDER HIS HEART? The daughter of a thief, Emmy learned long ago how to keep her secrets safeguarded--and, as the notorious Nightjar, her love for Alex Harland is one of them. With the determined earl hot on her trail--and making her hot under the collar--Emmy has no choice but to keep her distance. But when a moment's danger threatens Emmy's life as well as her name, will Alex finally discover that he's followed every true love? "Full of intense emotions and dramatic twists....Future installments will be eagerly anticipated by Regency readers."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on This Earl of Mine
