Title: The Rake Desires the Diamond


Author: Nicki Pascarella


Genre: Regency Romance


Book Blurb:


When all else fails, kiss your enemy…


Lady Katrina Harrington considers herself the luckiest woman in England until a masked rake seduces her, destroying her perfect life. Evan Eaton lives a carefree existence until the diamond of the season kisses him, setting his world spinning. Now, the childhood enemies must fight their scorching chemistry and work together to defeat the odious blackmailer who witnessed their untoward liaison.




Kat should have guessed that Beth’s mystery rendezvous was with the well-built man in green. Not only did he have the physique of a Roman warrior and a wicked grin that landed in a woman’s core, but he also smelled of citrus and mint. And currently, he clutched Kat close to his hard, warm body.


What type of rake didn’t know he held the wrong woman? She would push him away and tell him what a reprobate he was as soon as she finished inhaling his alluring, fresh scent. 


“So, you could not resist me, luv?” he said, his voice a seductive drawl that made her want to punch him in the patrician nose propping up his mask. It also made her want to rest her ear against his lips and listen to him whisper sweet sentiments. However, that was ridiculous wantonness and a product of her recent dream about kissing Alexander Sparrow.


“Were you dreaming of me, luv?” he asked.


What the dickens? What a presumptuous, pompous rouge.


“Nay, I was dreaming about…” She whimpered and clamped her lips together. How did he know she’d been dreaming of kisses?


His chuckle slapped her in the heart, then tickled its way to her fingertips that currently pressed against his muscular chest. She’d intended to push him away but was instead glued to him.


Good heavens. The intoxicating sea air must make one prurient. Unless someone had slipped some type of herbal elixir into her punch. For what else could be making her behave this way? She needed to pull herself together.


“Unhand me,” she demanded.


He peered down at her fingers pressed against him and chuckled. “You first.”


“Bah.” She reluctantly ripped her hands from him and then stared down at his. Masculine tendons and thick veins protruded from the long fingers clinching her waist. She swallowed.


Instead of letting go, he pulled her closer, squeezing a breathy gasp from her lungs. His lips cupped her ear. “Do you remember the things you whispered in my ear outside the ballroom? For I do. Every last libidinous utterance.”


Kat would strangle her cousin the next time she saw her. She opened her mouth to tell him that he had the wrong woman. But for some inexplicable reason, curiosity got the better of her. “Remind me. What did I say?” she asked.
