I’ve just updated and re-published one of my regency romances that was previously published by Steeple Hill.
The Rogue’s Redemption is very dear to my heart. I love dark, tormented heroes who find the Redeemer’s love. Such is the case with Gerrit Hawkes, my villian in a previous regency, Dawn in my Heart. He was the wickedly handsome and charming redcoat, a captain in the elite Coldstream Guards, who ravished the heroine Lady Gillian Edwards.
But war has left him disillusioned, empty, and suffering from PTSD. As the rest of London celebrates Wellington’s final victory over Napoleon at Waterloo, Gerrit tries to obliterate the torturing memories in drink and gaming. Anything to forget the young men–barely out of boyhood–he bayoneted on the bloody battlefield but who helped earn him his promotion to major.
Into his life steps Hester Leighton, a 24-year-old American whose faith in God shines from her. Being introduced to the London ton, she feels like a fish out of water, and despite her strong faith, she finds herself hard-pressed to navigate its treacherous waters.
Gerrit offers her friendship, but when she departs for America once more, he is left facing the reality of his bleak existence and sure self-destruction. Continuing in his world becomes impossible but setting out to the wild new world with nothing to call his own, to win the only woman who offers him salvation, is more daunting than any battlefield he has ever faced.
