Fanning the Flame is the final book in the LORDS OF CHANCE trilogy about three English lords, friends at Oxford, which began with Justin Ross in Heartless. Clayton Harcourt’s story, The Fire Inside, introduced Adam Hawthorne, Earl of Blackwood, the hero in Fanning the Flame.
Adam, a former major in His Majesty’s Army, is a man troubled by memories of the past. From the moment he meets Jillian Whitney he is drawn to her genteel nature. When he sees her fleeing the scene of a murder, Adam refuses to believe such a kind-spirited woman could be guilty of the crime.
But Jillian is a lady immersed in scandal. Unfairly gossiped about and shunned from Society, she is the primary suspect, and only Adam’s intervention can save her from Newgate prison—or worse. But Adam is distrustful of the female sex. What if Jillian is lying? He’s been betrayed before – refuses to be duped again.
