In an effort to escape her stepmother's matrimonial machinations and indulge her bluestocking tendencies, Lady Pearl Moreston dons a servant's garb and heads off with her maid to work for an evening in the kitchen of one of London's finer homes. But her adventure has near disastrous consequences, and unable to return home without betraying who she is, she ends up staying with Luke St. Clair, a thief and legendary Saint of the Seven Dials. Attracted to each other, Luke and Pearl are startled to end up in an embrace, a situation that sends Pearl home in the middle of the night and Luke determined to find her. An intelligent heroine with more on her mind than marriage, a socially engaged hero who is much more than he pretends to be, and an enjoyable plot result in a sensual, fast-paced romance that touches on a number of social issues and delves, however briefly, into the darker side of the Regency period. Hiatt (Ship of Dreams), is a popular, award-winning writer and lives in Indiana.
