A Perilous Desire

(The sixth book in the Mayfair Literary League series)
A novel by

Bonded by books and united by a purpose, The Mayfair Literary League has taken on a new mission—For Better or Worse. The bachelors of London won’t know what hit them when these bookish ladies set their sights on the men in their lives who don’t see them for who they truly are—yet.

Will a perilous desire lead to disaster...or the chance for love?

Rebecca Hatch claimed a new life after she was presumed dead in a terrible shipwreck. She managed to escape her cruel fiancé and uncaring uncle, leaving behind frightened, insecure Becca Hamilton to become a widow sure of her place in the world. At least on the outside.

But when she stumbles upon her fiancé’s solicitor in London, is her new life in peril?

The son of a merchant, solicitor Nathaniel Roth has already exceeded everyone’s expectations except his own. However, his success comes at a cost—he owes a debt he can’t repay to the powerful Earl of Fanthorpe.

Nathaniel is stunned when he encounters a lady who looks remarkably like the dead fiancée of the earl’s son. Curious, he can’t seem to keep his distance and finds himself attracted to the bold lady who acts so differently than the timid woman he used to know.

Coming upon Nathaniel terrifies Rebecca even as she keeps up the pretense of her new identity. She used to secretly admire his kindness and honor despite his loyalty to the treacherous Fanthorpe’s. Soon, she can’t resist the passion simmering between them although it threatens her hard-won freedom and possibly her life.

When Fanthorpe calls in an impossible favor, Nathaniel must choose between loyalty and love. Will Rebecca find the courage to trust Nathaniel with not only her secret but her heart?
