She can save him-or bring him to ultimate ruin. The Earl of Markham's life is unraveling before his eyes. The harder he tries to pick up the frayed ends, the quicker his carefully guarded control slips from his iron grasp. Five years after the death of his wife, the threat of blackmail hangs over his son's inheritance. His only hope to quell the gossip before it begins lies in a headstrong young commoner as wild and free as the English countryside she loves. She is wrong for him in every way. Yet she brings life to his colorless world-and warms his heart with a fire that threatens to shatter the wall around his heart. Lizzie Parker is content with her garden, her village and caring for her aging father. She wants no part of the glittering London Season, but her father will not be denied his wish to see to her future. Still, she plans to do everything in her power to vex the man charged with taking her away from her beloved home. The man who once broke her heart. Markham. She never expected his kisses to tame her resistance. With each touch he rouses her senses, until suddenly she's not at all sure where she belongs...Warning: Blackmail! (oh my) Secrets! (oh my) Love Scenes! (oh oh my) and even a trip to the magnificent Crystal Palace in London. You won't be able to put this one down.

About the Author

Leslie tends to obsess about the things she enjoys: writing, Gerard Butler, gardening, beading, Gerard Butler. She's been writing since high school, when Wuthering Heights inspired her to create worlds of dark heroes, brave heroines, and stormy nights. Since then she's written tales of history and stories of the future. When she's not writing, gardening, or making jewelry, Leslie can be found at her day job. But most likely she's shuttling around her three children, walking their beagle or opening doors for their cat. A Tarnished Heart is Leslie's fourth published title.
