Amidst murder and betrayal, destiny and hearts collide when scandal forces a viscount and a  gypsy noblewoman to marry in this Regency romance, sprinkled with suspense and humor.

Part Romani, part English noblewoman, Evangeline Caruthers is the last woman in England Ian Hamilton, the Viscount Warrick, could ever love—an immoral wanton responsible for his brother’s and father’s deaths. She thinks he’s a foul-tempered blackguard, who after setting out to cause her downfall, finds himself forced to marry her—snared in the trap of his own making.

When Vangie learns the marriage ceremony itself may have been a ruse, she flees to her gypsy relatives, declaring herself divorced from Ian under Romani law. He pursues her to the gypsy encampment, and when the handsome gypsy king offers to take Ian’s place in Vangie’s bed, jealousy stirs hot and dangerous.

At last, under a balmy starlit sky, Ian and Vangie breech the chasm separating them. Peril lurks though. Ian’s the last in his line, and his stepmother intends to dispose of the newlyweds so her daughter can inherit his estate. Only by trusting each other can they overcome scandal and murderous betrayal.

“A brilliant tale combining Regency romance with exotic Romani culture.”

Here area few Romani  phrases  and their meanings that you'll find in the book.
It is easier to milk a cow that stands still-something is hard or  impossible

Beauty cannot be eaten with a spoon- On the order of our idiom, beauty is only skin deep.

Without wood the fire would die-A body needs food

The droppings of the flying bird never fall twice on the same spot-good luck

And then there are these Regency expressions:
Make a cake of oneself-make a fool of yourself

The parsons mousetrap-married

Draw someone’s cork- Punch in the nose and make bleed

Fly high into the boughs-get upset/angry
