Back cover copy

The thief of hearts . . .

Bored with stuffy balls and pompous suitors, Miss Natalie Haislett longs for romance and adventure--and dreams of wedding England's most notorious thief, the Black Knight. To this end, she approaches the renowned rakehell Jonathan Drake, reputed to be a friend of Natalie's would-be lover, and begs him for an introduction . . . unaware that the outlaw she so desires is as close to her as a kiss.

Intrigued by Natalie's devotion and determination--and intending to use the unsuspecting beauty to pull off a brazen jewel theft--Drake agrees to escort Natalie to France, where the Black Knight is rumored to be. But while traveling in the guise of a married couple, an intimate friendship blossoms and the fires of reckless passion are stoked--as the daring bandit sets his sights on the priceless treasure he knows he must purloin: his lady's heart.

About Adele Ashworth

I've always loved to write, but after my first attempt at a novel (nine chapters of Plastic City, the story of underwater-dwelling orphans in the twenty-third century that I wrotein the sixth grade), I took some time to get my bachelor'sdegree and to try my hand at other careers before I returnedto my first passion: creative writing. After lots and lots of perseverance, hard work, and a bit of very good luck, My Darling Caroline went on to win the Romance Writers of America's RITA(R) Award for Best First Book of 1998. I live in Texas with my family, exploring history as Idelve into the hearts of my characters.
