The Highwayman's Heroine

(A book in the Wanton Wastrels series)
A novel by

Harlan Mathis is a notorious highwayman, at least, as far as anyone is aware. The gentleman and his gang of revelers strike renewed fear into the heart of travelers on their way to London. In truth, Harlan is a privateer for the Crown, tasked with finding out who is responsible for the threat of rebellion that is causing current unrest. With the death of William IV and the recent advent of Queen Victoria to the throne, he has to ensure a smooth transition for the new monarchy. To do that, he has to put himself in jeopardy. And now he has a lovely captive—possibly a spy—who tempts him at every turn.

Miss Leah Lindquist was on her way to Birmingham to stay with her elder half-brother, a vicar, after the unfortunate passing of her aunt in France. She fears that once she arrived to stay with her new guardian, she will be forced into an unwanted union, so she isn’t entirely upset when her public coach is set upon and she is taken hostage by a mysterious, masked stranger. Neither does she intend to remain oblivious about what is going on around her. It isn’t long before she realizes that not all is as it seems and she is determined to assist in the cause.

As tensions rise in the country, and the heat between Leah and Harlan steadily mount, will they secure the ending that everyone is hopeful for, or will conspiracy and mutiny rule the day?
