From the incomparable author of the national bestsellers Violet and Valentine comes a new triumph of romance. Brimming with passionate emotion and compelling adventure, here is Jane Feather at her most unforgettable. As the stranger's arms closed around her, Octavia Morgan knew she'd just made the biggest mistake of her life. Picking pockets had seemed the only answer to her desperate plight. But now she'd been caught, and there was worse to come. For the dangerously attractive man she'd robbed was no common mark, but the most notorious highwayman in England. Haunted by his past and hungry for revenge, Lord Nick didn't take kindly to being fleeced, especially by a ravishing thief with a deceptive air of innocence . . . until he realized that this reckless beauty could be the key to his long-sought vengeance. All he had to do was seduce her. All he had to do was ensnare her. All he had to do was enflame her . . . without letting this artful little pickpocket steal his heart.
