When her parents and twin brother die within weeks of each other, Alicia and her younger sister are left in the hands of an uncle who has brought them all to financial and social ruin. Desperate to save her family from debtor's prison, Alicia vows to marry the first wealthy man to propose. She meets the dashing Lord Amesbury, and her heart whispers that this is the man she is destined to love, but his tainted past may forever stand in their way. Her choices in potential husbands narrow to either a scarred cripple with the heart of a poet, or a handsome rake with a deadly secret.

Cole Amesbury is tormented by his own ghosts, and believes he is beyond redemption, yet he cannot deny his attraction for the girl whose genuine goodness touches the heart he'd thought long dead. He fears the scars in his soul cut so deeply that he may never be able to offer Alicia a love that is true. When yet another bizarre mishap threatens her life, Alicia suspects the seemingly unrelated accidents that have plagued her loved ones are actually a killer's attempt to exterminate every member of her family. Despite the threat looming over her, learning to love the stranger she married may pose the greatest danger to her heart.

Praise for The Guise of a Gentleman:
"Combining Jane Austen with swashbuckling adventure, The Guise of a Gentleman is a fine specimen of pirate romance!" -- NY Times bestselling author Jennifer Ashley

"The Guise of a Gentleman sweeps the reader along in an almost epic journey that begins in the proper, quiet drawing rooms of country manor houses, then moves to a daring high-seas pirate adventure, and back to England for an intense, nail-biting climax followed by a sweet HEA."
-- The Hope Chest Reviews

"A fabulous Story of Love and Adventure! This book was fantastic! I think I liked it even better than the first one [The Stranger She Married.]. Jared is a wonderful and full character. Elise is sweet and brave and everything you could want in a heroine. The action and adventure pull you along, keeping you enthralled through every twist and turn. The side characters are full and fun, making the world of piracy come to life. Jared and Elise's love is realistic, sweet and powerful. I got so caught up in the story that my heart pounded, tears filled my eyes and I just wanted to reach over and kiss my husband as I read it. I also liked seeing more of the other brothers come to life. I'm not sure whose story I am most looking forward to reading next – can't wait for the next one!"
