A LADY ON THE BRINK OF DISASTER Quintessential debutante Lady Philippa Latham is determined to avoid scandal at all costs so that she may marry well. When her mother's outrageous behavior threatens their family's reputation, Philippa unwittingly follows her to a party no unmarried Society girl would risk attending. As if that wasn't bad enough, Philippa is "rescued" from disaster by England's most notorious scoundrel, which sets them both on a path to public and personal ruin. A SCOUNDREL IN NEED OF SEDUCTION Lord Ambrose Sevrin is infamous for ruining his brother's fiancee and refusing to marry her. Content to remain among the fringe of the upper ten thousand, he is an intriguing enigma to London's elite. Philippa thinks she's met the true Ambrose-a gentleman who would fight to defend her and help her secure a husband before it's too late. But he can't be that husband, even for her. He won't tolerate redemption-or love-for his crimes are far worse than anyone can imagine.

Miss Julianne Gatewick is in a pickle. It started when her brother's best friend-for whom she's long nursed a secret tendre-agreed to act as her guardian for the Season, only to seduce her with a risqué waltz. But when the music stopped and the expectant ton waited for Marc Darcett, Earl of Hawkfield, to claim her as his own, he made his disinterest clear. Rather than succumb to humiliation, Julianne does what any self-respecting, recently discarded young miss with a wicked sense of humor would do. She secretly pens a lady's guide to enticing unrepentant rakes . . . and it becomes the hottest scandal sheet in London. Every honorable rake knows that friends' sisters are forbidden. But suddenly Julienne has a spark of mischief in her eyes that Hawk can't resist. Try as he might to push her away, he spends his days listening for her laughter and his nights dreaming of kissing her senseless. He's always avoided innocents and their marriage-minded mothers, but has the man least likely to wed finally met his match?

There are other manifestations of greatness than to relieve suffering or to wreck an empire. Julius Caesar and John Howard are not the only heroes who have smiled upon the world. In the supreme adaptation of means to an end there is a constant nobility, for neither ambition nor virtue is the essential of a perfect action. How shall you contemplate with indifference the career of an artist whom genius or good guidance has compelled to exercise his peculiar skill, to indulge his finer aptitudes? A masterly theft rises in its claim to respect high above the reprobation of the moralist. The scoundrel, when once justice is quit of him, has a right to be appraised by his actions, not by their effect; and he dies secure in the knowledge that he is commonly more distinguished, if he be less loved, than his virtuous contemporaries. While murder is wellnigh as old as life, property and the pocket invented theft, late-born among the arts. It was not until avarice had devised many a cunning trick for the protection of wealth, until civilisation had multiplied the forms of portable property, that thieving became a liberal and an elegant profession. True, in pastoral society, the lawless man was eager to lift cattle, to break down the barrier between robbery and warfare. But the contrast is as sharp between the savagery of the ancient reiver and the polished performance of Captain Hind as between the daub of the pavement and the perfection of Velasquez.
