Summary

Rumors and Gossip . . . The lifeblood of London 
When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. 
Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security. He's not a spy, but he's had all the training, and when a gorgeous blonde begins to watch him from her window, he is instantly suspicious. But just when he decides that she's nothing more than an annoyingly nosy debutante, he discovers that she might be engaged to a foreign prince, who might be plotting against England. And when Harry is roped into spying on Olivia, he discovers that he might be falling for her himself . . .

    “A villain so unique, he gave me nightmares and fantasies.”—Jeaniene Frost 
    When it comes to bad boys, no one beats Sammy Divine (a.k.a. Satan, Lucifer, Scratch). But whatever name he cares to go by, Sammy is one sexy devil—as New York Times bestselling RITA Award winner Terri Garey so delectably demonstrates in A Devil Named Desire. Sammy’s second unforgettable appearance—after Devil Without a Cause—is tasty, tempting, and hotter than hell, as the irresistible Prince of Darkness sets out to prove to his archangel friend Gabriel that forbidden fruit, in the form of a beautiful woman, is impossible to resist. Garey delivers dark, edgy, wickedly wonderful paranormal fun that fans of Mary Janice Davidson and the Sookie Stackhouse novels of Charlaine Harris might eagerly sell their souls for.
