HER VIRTUE COMES AT A HIGH COST
At a gaming table where he cheated Lady Alexa Garrick out of a fortune, Damien, Lord Falon, made a scandalous proposal to the exquisite young heiress―one night in his bed would discharge her debt. Yet, as he claimed his prize, the handsome earl fought a craving for more than Alexa's body. When a twist of fate turned seduction into matrimony, rapture and rage warred within him. How could he love the woman whose flirtation had destroyed his brother?
HIS DESIRE: PRICELESS...
Alexa knew of Damien's French blood, scandalous liaisons, and the whispers that branded him a smuggler. Though she was playing with fire, the dark, devil-earl's hungry embrace plucked at her heartstrings with a haunting song of desire. But how could she be sure whether Damien was drawing her into a web of danger and deceit...or offering her his true and lasting love?

Currently living in Missoula, Montana, Kat Martin is the bestselling author of over fifty historical and contemporary romance novels. Before she started writing in 1985, Kat was a real estate broker. During that time, she met her husband, Larry Jay Martin, also an author. Kat is a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, where she majored in anthropology and also studied history. "I love anything old," Kat says. "I love to travel and especially like to visit the places where my books are set. My husband and I often stay in out-of-the-way inns and houses built in times past. It's fun and it gives a wonderful sense of a by-gone era."From Publishers Weekly:
Determined to match wits with Damien, the scandalous Earl of Falon, Alexa Garrick recklessly consents to meet him at the whist table. More than #90,000 in losses later, Alexa discovers that money isn't what Damien has in mind. Convinced that his brother Peter killed himself because Alexa had spurned the attentions of a "penniless second son," Damien is determined to see that Alexa pays for his family's loss. The earl's suggestion that they meet privately to discuss her debt intrigues Alexa, as does the handsome earl himself. But when their meeting is observed and Alexa's reputation ruined, as he planned, Damien offers to marry her to protect her honor, deluding himself into thinking that a loveless marriage will be but another form of revenge. Martin's (Bold Angel) story is delightful and her character insights astute. Though Damien might easily have slipped into villainhood, the author rescues him with scenes that ring true-as when he visits Peter's grave with his mother. Martin also deftly manages the sometimes tricky task of injecting humor without compromising her characters or making them jokey.
