Mad for the Marquess

 Mad for the Marquess (coming soon!)

Heir to a duchy, handsome as the devil, and possessing a da Vinci-like brilliance, JAMES DRAKE, Marquess of Devlin, has everything–except his freedom. After a tragic death in which Dev was involved causes his mind to snap, his father confines his son to a madhouse, giving him one short year to recover his wits and lost memories before he has him declared mentally incompetent. But the demons inside Lord Devlin’s head are far easier to battle than the evil surrounding him at Ballencrieff Asylum.

Brought up in a charity school, ANNE WINTON longs to share her gift of healing with those in need. When a jealous student accuses Anne of witchcraft, costing her her job as a teacher, Ballencrieff Asylum must be her new beginning. Drawn to the “Mad Marquess,” Anne sheds her shy naiveté to immerse herself in Devlin’s tortured life, vowing to save him not only from his father and scheming doctors, but even from Lord Devlin himself.

As Anne struggles to reconcile her fear of and attraction to this complicated man, Devlin plots to use her as a pawn to extricate himself from his prison. But his plans fall to pieces as he begins to see her not just as a means to an end, but as a beautifully passionate woman. Now he must choose: ruin the woman he is coming to love, or languish forever in hell.
