Caprice Publisher's Summary

In both love and war, engaging the enemy is a dangerous game. "Laura Parker's innovativeness and beautiful style of writing keep her a head above the rest." (Affaire de Coeur).

Hadrian Blackburne returns to London from the war. Thought to have been killed at Waterloo, he soon wishes he were, instead bored to tears by his unruly family and his role as Lord. He misses the spy games of Persia, where he was a master of intrigue. His attention is snared by a ravishing, veiled beauty who has swept into London's Regency society on a cloud of exotic mystery. Who is this Princess Sultana el Djemal? Hadrian must know, even if playing the game of love could cost him body and soul. Clarissa Willoughby's harmless deception was designed to open doors for a widow ready to shed her weeds. Once Hadrian begins his pursuit of "Sultana," his passionate seduction makes Clarissa jealous of the exotic temptress she herself created. The game of love becomes more perilous than way when Clarissa sets out to win Hadrian's heart, battling again his suspicions and her alter ego.

To get him out, Japonica must enlist the aid of the infamous Hind Div, a man as mysterious as he is ruthless. Whispered to be a spy, an assassin, and even a sorcerer, Hind Div agrees to help Fortmon, and all it will cost her is a night of passion. A year later and the war is over. Freshly widowed Japonica arrives in England, wishing only to settle her unruly step-daughters with Devlyn Sinclair, the new Viscount, and to return to France, and the son conceived on that one night of surrender.

    A man who lives two lives risks dying twice. He’s known as Merlyn Ross, an actor and petty thief. He’s a handsome commoner who wears a leather eyepatch, his other eye a piercing emerald green. He’s also known as the Comte de Valure, a dashing French nobleman who wears a grey wig and a silk eye patch, his other eye an chanting sapphire blue. Admired by men, adored by women, no one suspects that Merlyn and the Comte are one and the same, or that both men steal more than kisses when setting out to seduce London’s wealthiest women. But one night changes everything....
