First comes revenge then comes love and marriage in The Duke’s Tattoo, a historical romance set in Regency England. This is Book One of ‘The Horsemen of the Apocalypse’ series.

Miss Prudence Haversham, Bath’s first and only female apothecary, knows she'll have a significant problem if the tenth Duke of Ainsworth ever discovers she is to blame for the mocking tattoo she had tattooed on his august person in revenge. Unfortunately, the duke she tattooed is not the Duke of Ainsworth who disgraced her with his lies. Worse, he is one of four infamously implacable cavalry officers known as ‘The Horsemen of the Apocalypse.’

After being grievously wounded at Waterloo, Jeremy Maubrey returns to London as the tenth Duke of Ainsworth and finds his new life painful, dull and full of obligations. That is, until he wakes to find himself indelibly decorated in a mortifying manner.

Though he cannot recall much of the abduction and tattooing, he does remember the waif-like villainess and her arresting eyes. Ducal duties must wait while he finds the culprit and takes his revenge.

Hero and heroine meet as adversaries in Bath. Prudence Haversham overturns the duke’s every expectation and intention. In turn, the duke proves himself a surprisingly forgiving man who earns her love.
