What happens when a knight of the road meets a wallflower on a mission?

An unusual wallflower. A knight of the road. And a moment that changed all they thought they knew.

Devoted to the children at her orphanage, Miss Caroline Hawkins hides her beauty behind thick spectacles and drab clothing in order to remain unwed...and free to do as she pleases. While her parents would love nothing more than to see her well married, Caroline is determined to live life on her own terms, refining her disguise to perfection in order to scare off suitors. For years, she's lived in the shadows of society, unnoticed by the crème de la crème of the ton...

...until Lord Markham, a.k.a. the Black Baron, takes a closer look and realizes that there is more to mousy Miss Hawkins than meets the eye.

Pierce Byrne, Baron Markham, detests English society for their selfish disdain and complete disregard for others, and thus, to even the odds, to give back at least a little, Pierce dons a black mask at night and sets out to rob his fellow peers in order to do what is right...

...until one night when he comes upon yet another carriage and finds a highly unusual woman inside. A woman with a secret of her own. A woman he's met before.

Determined to uncover her secret, Pierce follows her, and before he knows it, all he thought he knew is called into question, as a mousy wallflower upends his world...and steals his heart.


Miss Caroline Hawkins hides herself from everyone with a little change to her appearance. She has things she wants to achieve, and she can only do them if she stays unmarried and unnoticed. Luckily for her, her beautiful cousin is the focus of her parent's marriage ambitions.
Pierce Byrne,  Baron Markham has more than a few secrets of his own.  He hates the behavior of some of society,  especially the men who do despicable things just because they can get away with them.  So he makes as many as possible pay for it. 
This is definitely a fun read.  Both our hero and heroine are determined to help those who can't help themselves and that causes them to get into difficult situations. 
There are giggles, tears,  danger and highly emotional moments.  So much to enjoy and keep the pages flying past. 
This story is set in the same timeline as the previous book in the series which is the beautiful cousin's story.  It made me smile to think I knew something this heroine didn't about the other girl's secrets.  But if you are going to read the series ( highly recommended)  you should read them in order or this one could spoil the ending of the other.  
I loved every page.


USA Today bestselling and award-winning author, Bree Wolf has always been a language enthusiast (though not a grammarian!) and is rarely found without a book in her hand or her fingers glued to a keyboard. Trying to find her way, she has taught English as a second language, traveled abroad and worked at a translation agency as well as a law firm in Ireland. She also spent loooong years obtaining a BA in English and Education and an MA in Specialized Translation while wishing she could simply be a writer. Although there is nothing simple about being a writer, her dreams have finally come true.

"A big thanks to my fairy godmother!"

Currently, Bree has found her new home in the historical romance genre, writing Regency novels and novellas. Enjoying the mix of fact and fiction, she occasionally feels like a puppet master (or mistress? Although that sounds weird!), forcing her characters into ever-new situations that will put their strength, their beliefs, their love to the test, hoping that in the end they will triumph and get the happily-ever-after we are all looking for.
