Katherine Taylor Winslow, reigning queen of American romance and confirmed city girl, yearned for old–fashioned heroes -- men who could put the fire of passion in a woman’s blood or the chill of fear in a man’s heart with no more than a look.
Cole Grayson had been called the Last Swashbuckler, rightful heir to Flynn’s sword and Gable’s grin, an eighteenth–century man in a twenty–first–century world. His name was box–office gold and the world was hungry for knowledge about him.
