Not even a highwayman can steal this Lady’s heart…
Lady Alice Worthingham never conforms to Society’s norms. Ever. She loves adventure, new experiences, and approaches life with a sassy attitude Society can take or leave. But even for her, robbery by a highwayman is a bit much.
Lord Arndel, Lady Alice’s neighbor, is playing a dangerous game—acting the proper viscount by day and the Surrey Bandit by night. And to brazenly steal from the woman who’s captured his attention is no mean feat, or the wisest of moves.
When Lady Alice learns the truth, the viscount finds that when a well-bred woman seeks revenge, she’ll make a gentleman thief pay for his crimes with everything…including his heart.
Lord Arndel, Lady Alice’s neighbor, is playing a dangerous game—a gentleman by day and the Surrey Bandit by night. And to brazenly steal from the woman who’s captured his notice is no mean feat, nor the wisest of moves.
When Lady Alice learns the truth. Arndel finds that even a well-bred woman can seek her pound of flesh and make a thief pay for his crimes with everything, even his heart.
When Lady Alice learns that her neighbor, the Viscount of Arndel, is the infamous Surrey Bandit she will make him pay for his crimes with everything—even his heart.
Alice’s eyes narrowed at the tsk, tsk, tsk that sounded from the highwayman. She looked at the horse and wondered how a robber could own such a beast. Or perhaps, stolen would be a better summation. She studied the man, his breeches tight to his well-formed legs. His jacket and shirt, though not the best in quality, were clean and pressed.
As for his face, she could not make it out at all, due to the black bandanna covering his nose and mouth. But his eyes, dark as night, were intelligent, calculating, and right at this moment, making a study of them. Thoroughly.
The highwayman bowed low on his horse. “I do believe the Duchess of Penworth is to be my quarry this day. And that lovely brooch you have upon your person will do nicely as my payment. Hand it over and no harm will come to you.”
Alice comforted her mother as she gasped, in vain trying to hide the brooch that made the robber’s eyes gleam with sickening greed.
“Who gives you the right to take what doesn’t belong to you, sir?” Alice raised her chin in defiance. The thought of her mama losing such a treasured family jewel made the blood boil in her veins.
She stilled as the man’s attention swung her way, the lift of his eyebrows declaring he had not noticed her, or had been ignoring her. Alice pushed down the sickening nerves that racked her innards when he proceeded to dismount, then walk toward them with a swagger that oozed confidence.
Alice lifted her chin further and refused to look away, even though her mind froze in fear. He was tall, strong, and could break them both in half, if he wished, if the size of his arms were any indication. Oh, dear, please don’t hurt us. I’m sorry I spoke. She swallowed as he came to stand before her, much too close for her comfort.
“You are a beauty, my little blond goddess. Perhaps I should steal you, instead of the man-made ornaments.” He reached out and flicked her mother’s brooch, dismissing it as nothing of value.
