Condemned and Admired

The Earl's Cunning Wife
(The ninth book in the Love's Second Chance series)
A novel by

In this HOLT Medallion winning regency romance by USA Today bestselling author Bree Wolf, an English earl and a French privateer’s daughter learn that trust and love can exist even across enemy lines.

England 1808: OLIVER CORNELL, EARL OF CULLINGWOOD, is trapped in a life he abhors. Not seen as a son, but merely an heir, he longs for something meaningful to enter his life. But as the years go by, Oliver falls prey to self-doubt as well as complacency, playing the handsome rogue, untamed by the ladies of London.

Then an error of judgment - or Fate perhaps? - lands him on an English merchant ship, which is promptly boarded by a French privateer. On board, Oliver’s eyes are drawn to the captain’s daughter, standing at the bow, a sword in her hand and a pistol strapped to her hip, her golden tendrils dancing in the wind. Mesmerized by the adventurous gleam in her blue eyes, Oliver stands and stares at the woman unlike any he’s ever met.

VIOLET WINTERS was born English, but life led her down a different path and made her a French privateer’s daughter. Today, she sails the seas with her adoptive father, dreaming of one day commandeering a ship of her own. However, when she stumbles upon a piece of her past, Violet feels honor-bound to return to England and repay a debt.

An English earl taken prisoner on her father’s ship offers to pose as her husband in order to guide her through English society in exchange for his freedom. Tempted by the devilishly disarming spark in his eyes, Violet agrees, knowing he’s her best chance for success. However, as the days tick by, their simple mission is made complicated by the bond that grows between them.

Before long, Oliver realizes that simply posing as Violet’s husband will not do. Violet, however, reminds herself that she must not surrender her freedom to a man, even one who holds her heart.
