#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR
One duel could be considered a matter of honor, but three duels are attempted murder! With enlightened society outraged at such reckless behavior among young noblemen, the Prince Regent orders Robert Whitworth, the earl of Tamdon’s heir, and Lord Dominic Wolfe to end their dispute by allying their families through marriage. Whichever party refuses to comply will forfeit his lands and title.
Whitworth relishes the idea of sending his younger sister Brooke to his enemy’s remote estate. He knows the Wolf will reject her as a bride, thereby losing his wealth and status. The Wolf, however, is determined to scare away the Whitworth chit. With dueling no longer an available means of destroying the man he abhors, he will be satisfied to see him lose his lands and title. But he hadn’t expected his enemy’s sister to be so resourceful or resilient.
Brooke Whitworth has been dreaming of her first season in London because she intends to win a husband who will take her far away from her unloving family. Instead, she is being sent to the Yorkshire moors to wed a mysterious nobleman whose family is cursed and who has thrice tried to kill her brother. But there’s no room in her heart for fear; this man is her means of escape. She will make him love her!

Q&A WITH JOHANNA
Q. How would you describe your life in only eight words?
A. Currently, peaceful and full of laughter. Overall—amazing.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Loss of loved ones.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Where I am.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. Cool. Yeah, it’s outdated, but it’ a rare day you’ll catch me saying “awesome.”
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I used to paint with oils. Didn’t have much talent for it, and I don’t have the patience to actually acquire some skill for it, but if I could, that would be—cool.

A. The Wolf and the Dove, Sweet Savage Love, The Clan of the Cave Bear, and two of my own, Tender Rebel and Warrior’s Woman.
Q. Is there a book you love to reread?
A. Don’t laugh, but I like to reread my own books. A few can make me cry again, and most of them can make me laugh again.
Q. Do you have one sentence of advice for new writers?
A. Put your heart into what you’re writing. If you can’t laugh at your own characters, or shed a tear for them, or even get angry at one of them, no one else will either.
Q. What comment do you hear most often from your readers?
A. That they love the Malorys. So do I.
