~2014 RITA Finalist for Best Historical Romance~

Clara Becker is a supremely gifted compose - a talent of little to use to a woman in 1830s Europe. Her compositions only have worth when they are published under her brother's name, yet this deception barely enables them to scrape out a living in the poorest quarter of London.

Darien Reynard, the most celebrated musician in Europe, pursues success with a single-minded intensity. When he hears Becker's compositions, he knows that this music will secure his place in history. Darien tracks the composer down and, with some difficulty, convinces the man to tour with him. Mr. Becker agrees, but with the most unusual condition that he bring along his sister...

Darien’s unexpected desire for Clara jeopardizes the entire tour, but Clara must protect more than her heart. If he discovers her secret, her family’s new found fortune - and their very reputation - will be destroyed.

Set against the glittering backdrop of 19th century celebrity, Sonata for a Scoundrel is the newest full-length historical romance novel from USA Today bestselling author Anthea Lawson.
