The Beloved Scoundrel Details

From New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a thrilling tale of abduction, seduction, and surrender that sweeps from the shimmering halls of Regency England to the decadent haunts of a notorious rogue.
 
SHE IS A HOSTAGE TORN BETWEEN PASSION AND LOYALTY
 
Marianna Sanders realizes she cannot trust this dark and savagely seductive stranger who has come to spirit her away across the sea. She possesses a secret that can topple an empire, a secret that Jordan Draken, the duke of Cambaron, is determined to wrest from her. In the eyes of the world the arrogant duke is her guardian, but they both know she is to be a prisoner in his sinister plot—and a slave to his exquisite pleasure.
 
HE IS THE FABULOUS RAKE THEY CALL THE DUKE OF DIAMONDS
 
For years, brilliant, deadly Jordan Draken has schemed to destroy the emperor who threatens everything he values most in the world. Now that he holds this defiant woman who is the key to his final triumph, he feels a fierce sense of satisfaction . . . and the first stirring of desire. She was only supposed to be a pawn in his plans, but once alone with his captive, Jordan realizes she is a prize he could never surrender.
