Dado que solo está dispuesta a casarse por amor y no por dinero, Emily decide que publicar su novela será la mejor manera de conseguir la fortuna que necesita. Pero su manuscrito es rechazado por todos los editores. Al fin y al cabo, ¿a quién se le ocurriría leer un libro cuya heroína es un vampiro?
Pese a todo, Emily no se rinde y organiza una mascarada para atraer la atención sobre los vampiros, cuyas apariciones serán comentadas por todo Londres. Pero un misterioso americano, Logan Jennsen puede echarlo todo a perder...
El último libro de la serie de la Sociedad Literaria de Damas Londinenses, que al igual que los anteriores se puede leer de forma independiente, hará las delicias de las fans de D'Alessandro y seguramente le ganará nuevas lectoras.

Betina Krahn, the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Talking Man and The Soft Touch, is at her most charming and witty in this enchanting tale of unlikely love.
She vowed never to be married....
Sister Eloise was perhaps the most well intentioned novice at the Convent of the Brides of Virtue — and the one always in the most trouble. Headstrong and earnest, she was determined to surprise her frustrated abbess and succeed in her latest role as the convent’s new husband judge.
But to do so this modest beauty, who had forsaken all carnal pleasure, must judge a warrior whose mere presence exuded a dangerous, unpredictable, and totally male sensuality.
He’d do anything to be a husband....
Peril, earl of Whitmore, needed a virtuous wife in the worst possible way. And he could think of no way worse than taking a stubborn, opinionated young novice back to his blighted estate and proving he was husband material. But in the days and nights to come he finds that the one test he can’t pass is resisting this maddeningly irresistible woman.
And as the dark secret of the Whitmore estate is revealed and their passion ignited by a single forbidden touch, they find that the perfect match is often made in a far more sensuous place than heaven.

“[Readers] will take immense delight in Betina Krahn’s fabulous late Victorian tale.”—The Best Reviews
“[A] lively romp. Look for her trademark wit, her appealing characters, and a delightful dose of the exotic.”—Library Journal
Once upon a time, four superstar storytellers—New York Times bestselling authors Stephanie Laurens and Mary Balogh, along with Jacquie D'Alessandro and Candice Hern—came up with a delicious idea. What if they each wrote a story about a proper young lady stranded at a remote inn away from society's constraints? What would happen? And how long would it take for her to give in to desire?
In these four amazing tales, four heroines will come face-to-face with the men who got away . . . only to discover that, instead of anger, there is still a passionate connection that cannot be denied. And while each of their lives is quite different, and their pasts utterly unique, they will all make a common discovery—that one night can change everything . . . forever.
