Places to find Anna:
Sidonie Forsythe and Jonas Merrick meet as enemies in his half-ruined castle on the Devon cliffs. When he offers her a bargain - seven nights in his bed to save her sister from disaster, she accepts, not realizing that over the course of a week, she'll discover a man like no other and a love that will defy their world. At the end of SEVEN NIGHTS IN A ROGUE'S BED, Sidonie and Jonas find their happy ending. Jonas and Sidonie are briefly separated in A RAKE'S MIDNIGHT KISS, book 2 of Sons of Sin (September 2013), when Jonas's friends Camden Rothermere, the Duke of Sedgemoor, and Sir Richard Harmsworth ask for his help. It's during this time that they exchange these letters.
Barstow Hall, Wiltshire
30th September 1827
I can't tell you with what joy I received your note from yesterday. I know that you're only the mere space of a county away, but I miss you more with every minute.
Hurry back, my love, hurry back. My arms ache to hold you and my lips burn to kiss you and I'm dying to tell you all the fascinating things our daughter has done in the last day. Yes, I know, I'm a doting, foolish mamma. Just as I'm a doting, foolish wife. I suspect there's no curing me either of my love for our lovely Consuela or my love for you.
Although in a way, I lie when I say I miss you. I feel that since we've married, you've become part of every breath I take. I thought I fell in love with you during those days of ecstasy at Castle Craven, days that seem so long ago now, although in reality it's less than a year since I met you and you changed my life forever. But with every minute, I love you more.
So how can I miss someone who is with me each second? It's quite a conundrum, isn't it? One for your brilliant mind to stew over as you wend your way back to me tomorrow.
Ride swiftly, my love, ride swiftly. I hope that horse of yours runs faster than the wind. Tell him that if he doesn't, I'll put something nasty in his oats.
You're right, I did smile at the idea of the elegant Sir Richard Harmsworth falling head over heels in love, difficult as I find it to picture the superb baronet allowing himself such a loss of control. I'm sure if you accused him of being in love, he denied it as vehemently as he'd deny it if you accused him of wearing last year's coat. If he's in the state you say, it makes me wonder about Miss Barrett. She must be something out of the common way if she's upset our paragon's famous sangfroid.
I promise you a suitably wifely welcome when you gallop back to me, my darling. I wish you were in my wifely arms right now, although I suppose I must be generous and share your magnificence with the world - at least now and then.
I long for you more than I can say.
Your stubbornly and eternally loving wife

Will a week of seduction...
Desperate to save her sister's life, Sidonie Forsythe has agreed to submit herself to a terrible fate: Beyond the foreboding walls of Castle Craven, a notorious, hideously scarred scoundrel will take her virtue over the course of seven sinful nights. Yet instead of a monster, she encounters a man like no other. And during this week, she comes to care for Jonas Merrick in ways that defy all logic-even as a dark secret she carries threatens them both.
...Spark a lifetime of passionate surrender?
Ruthless loner Jonas knows exactly who he is. Should he forget, even for a moment, the curse he bears, a mere glance in the mirror serves as an agonizing reminder. So when the lovely Sidonie turns up on his doorstep, her seduction is an even more delicious prospect than he originally planned. But the hardened outcast is soon moved by her innocent beauty, sharp wit, and surprising courage. Now as dangerous enemies gather at the gate to destroy them, can their new, fragile love survive?
