'Lush, dark, utterly real and above all achingly romantic' RUTH WARE

Thrilling Regency romance, set against an Outlander-like background of passion and war, this will delight lovers of Poldark and Bridgerton.

1819: Cornwall and St Petersburg

High society England is awash with gossip and scandal. For Lady Hester, it's just typical that the wickedest gossip focuses on her beautiful, impossible husband Crow. Hester loves him fiercely, but the Earl of Lamorna has a wild past. Rumours of a child with his black hair and grey eyes wound Hester more than she'll admit.

Crow's enemies also want him tried for treason, and soon Hester and their own daughter are in danger. There's nothing Hester won't do to protect their child. So when Countess Lieven drops her guard and says, 'Take your baby, Hester, and run,' Hester does exactly that.

Meanwhile, Crow will do anything to save his family, even accepting a final mission that might end in losing them both for good.

Praise for Katy Moran:

A thrilling, sexy romp through brilliantly reimagined history. Hester is one of my very favourite heroines and it's probably best not to ask what I'd like to do with Crow... Totally absorbing' -- Holly Hepburn
'Sweeping and romantic, with a hero to rival Ross Poldark, Wicked By Design is a fantastic and compelling novel that draws you in and paints a glorious alternative St Petersburg, keeping you hooked until the end' -- Imogen Edwards-Jones
A swashbuckling, sparkling world of a novel... with a mad, bad and dangerous-to-know hero' -- Suzannah Dunn

Passionate, smart and action-packed... Stuffed full of heart-pumping romance' -- Sarah Hughes

'Badly behaved aristocrats, gloriously opinionated women and danger at every turn' * i newspaper *
