Love blossoms for a Lady Gardener when she robs a Duke. . . and then steals his heart.

Alexandra Grantham becomes Lady Robin Hood, stealing from the rich to provide for the local farm workers in the district. However, when her new neighbor, Mr. Robert Chanderly, unmasks her, Alexandra cannot hide her horror as he has it within his power to ruin her reputation. But, instead of blighting her social chances when they arrive in London, Robert decides to bring Alexandra into high fashion, and she effectively takes the ton by storm.  
Enemies abound in the Capital, however, causing trouble for Alexandra at every turn. So when an adversary threatens to reveal Alexandra’s dangerous secret, Robert must do everything within his power to defend the honor of the woman he loves—or lose the only lady he’s ever wished to make his wife.

Book Excerpt:

Alexandra straightened her spine as her coachman directed the horses
onto the main road. Soon they would be home, and she could put this
unfortunate incident behind her. However, as they came around the bend,

her eyes widened in horror as the coach she had just waylaid came into view.
“Slow down, Ben! The horses! He may recognize them.”

Her coachman glanced back at her. “Nay, miss, he won’t. They’re in
their traces, and I disguised their markings for the attack. Besides, he’d never
suspect a lady of being a highwayman, so he oughtn’t to look at your horses
with a leery eye.”

“Of course you’re right. Yet the impression I received of him was that he
is an uncommonly perceptive gentleman. I hoped he would have been well
on his way by now.” She chewed her bottom lip. “We must stay as far back as
possible until we turn off to Grantham Place.” Even as Ben drew on the
reins, the carriage in front of them came to a halt, blocking their way on the
narrow road.

As Ben halted as well, a groom jumped down from his perch to open the
coach door and let down the step. Alexandra held her breath as the dark
gentleman emerged. He stood immobile in the road for a while before
bowing politely in her direction. Alexandra inclined her head in response. He
was very tall, well over six feet, and his shoulders were uncommonly broad,
filling out his well-cut jacket impressively. Her wary gaze came to rest on the
strong line of his jaw and the uncompromising set of his mouth and chin.
All in all, it was a thoroughly disagreeable face.
