Donna Hatch is the author of the best-selling “Rogue Hearts Series,” and a winner of writing awards such as The Golden Quill and the International Digital Award. A hopeless romantic and adventurer at heart, she discovered her writing passion at the tender age of 8 and has been listening to those voices ever since. She has become a sought-after workshop presenter, and also juggles freelance editing, multiple volunteer positions, and most of all, her six children (seven, counting her husband). A native of Arizona who recently transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, she and her husband of over twenty years are living proof that there really is a happily ever after.

Lady Margaret secretly yearns for love, but fate has exchanged wedded bliss for a lie. When she is caught hovering over her cheating husband’s dead body, she is instantly doomed to hang for his murder. Without hope for justice, Margaret flees into the night alone. 

A cynical Bow Street Constable, Connor Jackson, vows to bring the fugitive Lady Margaret to face the law—but, he doesn’t expect sparks to fly between them. Could the strong yet tender lady truly be a killer? 

As more suspects—and even more condemning evidence—surface, the less certain Connor is of his duty. He must choose between his growing feelings for Lady Margaret and the demands of justice. Will the truth tear them apart or set them free to find love?

Excerpt 3 
Behind the pawnshop, they located her discarded bundle of clothes where she’d dropped them. 
Lady Hennessy picked them up and made a shooing motion. “I need to change.”
“And let you out of my sight?” Connor shook his head. 
“I’m not changing in front of you.” She glared at him with those strikingly vivid eyes. 
“I won’t risk you running.”
“I told you I wouldn’t.”
“Yes, you did,” he agreed pleasantly as he folded his arms.
She drew herself up and gave him a haughty glare. “You think I’m lying.”
“I would be foolish not to consider the possibility that a prime murder suspect might also lie.”
“You’re right; you are no gentleman.” 
They glared at each other, neither bending. 
Finally, she let out a huff. “Fine. Turn around. While I change, I’ll talk so you know I’m still here.”
He considered, looking for trickery. “Very well. But if it sounds as if your voice is getting farther away, I will look.”
She glared. “You might look anyway.”
She had him there. He wouldn’t be a red-blooded man if he had no temptation to look at a beautiful woman as she undressed. “I’m nothing like the constable who tried to arrest you.”
Dryly, she said, “Well, that’s a relief. Now turn around. And don’t peek.”
He put his back to her. “I’m listening.”
“Very well, what do you want me to say?”
“I don’t care. Just talk.”
“How refreshing. Most men prefer a silent female.” The rustle of fabric accompanied her words. “I suppose I could tell you about how much I adore drinking chocolate and that I sweeten it with a shocking amount of sugar and cream, or about the lobster bisque I’ve been thinking about all day, although at the moment, I’d even settle for some plain old bread pudding and turnip soup.”
He almost groaned aloud at his stupidity for giving a woman free rein to chatter. But it allowed him to be sure she remained in place.
