It's one thing to pretend to be a highwayman, but quite another to hold up the lady you love.

Following his disastrous attempt to woo the woman he loves, the Honorable William Haddington and his friends retire to Brooks club to drown their sorrows, only to find themselves agreeing to a ridiculous wager: they must don masks and cloaks to begin temporary careers as highwaymen, or lose their fortunes to men they despise.

Confused and frustrated by the odd encounter with the man she adores, Lady Amelia Fellowes is in no mood to suffer fools when five well-dressed men try to hold up her carriage in the middle of Hyde Park. When a second group of thieves arrive moments later, her temper flares. After all, she knows better than to leave her fate in the hands of mere men, and decides to take charge of the situation. What she does not expect, however, is to recognize the handsome leader of one group of rogues, or that he will ask her to dance with him in the moonlight.

William, feeling brave behind his mask, takes the chance to flirt outrageously with the woman he has loved since childhood. Amelia is strong, intelligent, and permanently above his touch, but in his current disguise, he is free to treat her with the gallantry and romance he has always wished to show. When she responds to him in kind, he almost forgets why he’s dressed up as a highwayman in the first place.

The real criminals of the road, however, are not about to make that mistake. 


The Honorable William Haddington is a very intelligent man but when it comes to the woman he loves he can't find any sensible words at all.  His friends are determined to help him.
Lady Amelia Fellowes has finished mourning for her husband.  He was much older than her and told her to find happiness after he was gone.  Now is the time to change her bestfriend into a husband.  
A fun historical romance with lovely characters.  This is obviously the first in a series where the back story will follow through each book because the "bet" wasn't settled.
