The Duke of Hawkhurst has an enormous estate, and a longstanding pedigree, but his ancestors have gambled, frittered, and otherwise simply lost the Hawkhurst fortune. Luckily, there are American heiresses galore coming to snare titled gentlemen, and put their money to good use keeping the castles sturdy and the estates afloat.
Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases for a publicist, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. In 1990, she read a romance novel and not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She's been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA's RITA(R), a HOLT Medallion, and a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.
