Historical Romance

London - 1870 and 1875

Arthur Pennington, the Earl of Knightly, has been an object of both admiration and disdain for most of his adult life due to his good looks, reputation as a rogue, and luck with women. Lately, however, many in his circle are wondering if he is the Lord K referred to in a scandalous book published anonymously. Even his fellow Chessmen suspect that he is the rogue. Knightly wonders himself, and could the author be someone he hurt several years ago?

Miss Regina Leyland has settled back in London after fleeing five years ago when she was left standing at the altar by the Earl of Knightly. As the beloved illegitimate daughter of an earl and an actress, Regina has returned to England, determined to show the world that what Knightly did is behind her. But it isn't, and he isn't. Her revenge is to pen a novel that is loosely based on their love affair. What she isn't prepared for is how he would react, or how others will. She has kept to herself and has not revealed a secret she's kept except to those in her immediate circle. 

What Regina isn't aware of is the real reason Knightly suddenly backed out of the marriage. And he isn't about to tell her or anyone else. But he keeps running into her, and he sees that another man is now courting her. Knightly hasn't recovered from loving Regina any more than she has gotten over him. But neither are aware of their mutual feelings. 

THE NOTORIOUS LORD KNIGHTLY is Book 2 in The Chessmen: Masters of Seduction series. Knightly is not the rogue he appears to be to the ton, and his heart won't let him move on from Regina. Regina, on the other hand, wants to fit into a society that snubs her, and by marrying a highly thought of man might be her opportunity. Or will it? She still has deep feelings for Knightly, and will that affect her future with another man?
