hiddenTitle: Hidden No More

Series: A Lady Forsaken, Book Five

Author: Christina McKnight

Genre: Historical Romance, Regency England

Release Date: March 23, 2016

Word Count: 83,000 appox.

Synopsis

A lady concealed from society…

Lady Ellington, the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy marquis, has spent her entire life hiding from London’s high society—both as a result of her own desires and those forced upon her by her overbearing and abusive father. When the marquis passes away suddenly, Ellie feels as though a weight has been lifted and immediately assumes her role as mistress of Drake House. Though she is constantly looking over her shoulder, wondering when it will all be taken from her. And for good reason—no sooner has she shed her black mourning garb than a missive arrives, announcing an heir to the Marquisate. A person she has never heard of before, but one with enough power to change her fate entirely.

A man uncovering the secrets of his past…

Taken in by his nursemaid in infancy and raised as an orphan, Alex has never had the benefits of a name or a bloodline. Yet he’s content to work hard and earn his keep as a stable hand in one of London’s finest homes, proving himself worthy of both his position and his friendship to the beautiful Lady Ellington. When Ellie asks for his help with a delicate matter, he’s happy to oblige, but soon finds himself in the middle of more than he bargained for. His innocent meeting reveals secrets from the past that he never could have imagined, and he discovers that he’s a duke by birth. But even with the possibility of a title and all that goes along with it, Alex is unsure whether he can tear down the walls Ellie has built to protect her heart.

A love neither can hide…

While the two have a love that’s undeniable, it may not be enough to bridge the gap and overcome the obstacles standing in their way. And now, with every secret revealed, there’s even more at stake.

Excerpt from Scorned Ever More

The rules had always been the same:

  1. The girl must be of noble birth,
  2. The taking must be in clear sight of all men competing, and, finally,
  3. Further attachments resulted in the loss of all points garnered.

A one-point penalty would be assessed if the female were married, and beyond that, if her husband or father were present during the tryst then extra points would be awarded.

Andrew Penton, the newly proclaimed Marquis of Drake, was hedging on a monstrous thirteen points being added to his running total, even with the penalty due to Mrs. St. Augustin’s married status. The only way he could muster more points was if the girl were an innocent, and although his reputation as a rakehell of the first order was true, he did not relish taking the virtue of a young girl, no matter how willing she appeared.

“Surely, I cannot.” The woman before him feigned innocence at his plight. “I must return before the performance begins.”

“Come now, Pearl,” Andrew coaxed. “It is only a few moments within my box. You truly must see the view. I guarantee it is far superior to the baron’s seats below.”

With little more effort expended, the baroness followed him willingly into his box, the door shutting soundlessly behind them.
