"Lecia Cornwall writes with wit and style that is sure to propel her to the top of the genre." -Lorraine Heath An exhilarating new voice in historical romance, Lecia Cornwall made a stunning debut with her sensuous and spectacular Secrets of a Proper Countess-and she returns just as strong with The Price of Temptation. A powerfully emotional love story in the smart and sensual romantic vein of Loretta Chase, Elizabeth Hoyt, and Anne Mallory, The Price of Temptation intimately explores what happens when a tortured Regency Robin Hood, meets his not so proper Marian.
