Mr. Tristan Tawstock has not come to Cornwall in search of a wife. He’s looking for contacts, connections, and useful friendships that could help as he launches a political career. But a . . . creature has shown up at Nightshade Manor—and its dark influence appears vulnerable to the combination of Lady Ninianne’s water magic and his own Promethean skills with fire and light.
As the monster’s menace spreads, Ninianne and Tristan agree to work together. But can the unlikely duo find and conquer the creature before one or both of them are destroyed? And will their unexpected attraction defeat all those best-laid plans?
USA Today Bestselling author Deb Marlowe grew up with her nose in a book. Luckily, she'd read enough romances to recognize the hero she met at a college Halloween party - even though he wore a tuxedo t-shirt instead of breeches and boots. They married, settled in North Carolina and raised two handsome, funny and genuinely intelligent boys.
A Golden Heart winner and Rita nominee, Deb writes Regency Romance and Victorian Mysteries..
