It's A Tempting Ruin, the latest Regency romance by bestselling author Kristin Vayden. Here’s the blurb:
He might be a gentleman by title, but he was a rogue at heart...
Beatrix Lamont is in hiding. Sequestered at Lady Southridge's country estate, she assumes the identity of a lady's companion: never once expecting her past would catch up with her.
It does, however, in the vexing and seductive form of Lord Neville.
Determined and far too charming for his own good--after all who simply demands a woman marry him?
Not a gentleman.
Lucky for Lord Neville, being a gentleman has never been an option, especially when it comes to Beatrix, the woman would try the patient of a saint, and every encounter with her leaves his body yearning for more.
Caught between wanting her for himself and needing to protect her from dangers that lurk in the shadows of both their pasts, he must eventually make a choice.
Become the gentleman he's never been--or play the seducer she brings out in him, and hope in the end she'll forgive him for using her to catch a killer.
It's hard to decide which attracts me more — the wonderful set-up described in the blurb, or the cover itself. And which is more stunning, the single splotch of blue of the man’s coat, or the delicate wash of pink and violet over the woman and the bed?
A Tempting Ruin is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, and Smashwords. It’s $2.99 and has 19 Amazon reviews with a 4.8 star average rating. Here's Kristin Vayden's website.
