Piers Montmorency

'Twas whispered that the mysterious Red Knight was more than mortal. Perhaps he'd even struck a devil's bargain to assure his warrior prowess. Yet Aisley sensed that Pier's shadows veiled a deeper secret.

Aisley de Laci

Like a whirlwind, Aisley descended on Dunmurrow castle to claim the Red Knight as her husband. And Piers knew his world was forever changed. But could a creature so full of joy and sunlight ever accept a life of passions draped in darkness?

In this sequel to The Devil's Lady, Nicholas de Laci seeks revenge upon the niece of his old enemy, but finds himself with a wife instead.

Gillian Hexham soon learned her new lord was more wedded to revenge than to her. For Nicholas de Laci had sworn to exact payment for the sins of her uncle. Why, then, did his eyes belie his words, speaking naught of retribution--but promising nights of love? — Fate had sent Nicholas de Laci the perfect bride to fill the aching need in his soul. W... more »ith her tainted blood, Gillian Hexham would at last satisfy the raw hunger that near consumed him...but only in ways he could never imagine!

A native midwesterner, Simmons graduated cum laude from Wittenberg University and was a journalist before turning to fiction.

Her 2003 release, A Man of Many Talents, was a launch title for Berkley's Sensation imprint.
