SOME RISE BY SIN
the debut novel by Courtney J. Hall
When Cade Badgley returns from a diplomatic mission in Rome to discover that his estranged father is dying, he has no choice but to accept an unwanted earldom, a crumbling estate and empty coffers. A kindly neighbor offers aid in return for an escort that will take his daughter to London to find a husband. Though the girl is a tempestuous artist with no marriageable skills, she quickly becomes sought-after by a man Cade has every reason not to trust. As Queen Mary Tudor lays dying, threatening the security of the realm, Cade finds himself in a battle involving his conscience, his heart, and his very life – and that of the woman he’s come to love.
