They call him many names, but angelic isn't one of them.

Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters," and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best—sin and sin again—and all's going swimmingly … until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.

She's too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world.

Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she's going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him—and with him her family and future—means taking on the devil himself, she won't back down. The trouble is that the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible that the person who needs saving most is Jessica herself.

Praise

“Kate Reading…narrates most of the book in an austere, cultivated voice excellently suited to the Georgian period, but she also brings an intimate boudoir coo to carnal matters, of which –warning!—there are plenty.” Washington Post

“As clever and delightful as the novel is, narrator Reading elevates it, creating a sparkling, magnificent edition that is not to be missed. She infuses scenes with heady charm and seduction, making the moment even more tense and delectable than it is in print…Simply fabulous, the audio deserves a wide audience.” Booklist (starred audio review)

“The characters are full-bodied and evenly matched. The passion is to die for, and every romance reader I know has this book on their keeper shelf.” Publishers Weekly

“Chase’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’-inspired Regency love story breathes life into time-honored tropes—the intelligent but inexperienced heroine and the tormented bad boy—with wit and emotional complexity.” BookPage

“Shimmering with a brilliant elegance, one of the great voices in romance casts a magic spell of enchantment over lucky readers in this sizzling duel of hearts.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

“Poignant, beautifully written…and scorchingly sensual.” Mary Jo Putney, author of Dancing in The Windhew
