Acclaimed author Vanessa Riley infuses the ballroom settings of Regency England with hints of Demerara Island and Jamaican flair in Rogues and Remarkable Women, her series revolving around The Widow's Grace, a secret society of widows battling society to regain their money and a chance at love everlasting. In this sweeping, swoon-worthy second installment, as a shipwrecked woman searches for her memories after being imprisoned in Bedlam, she becomes entangled with a conflicted Lord who doesn't know he holds the answers...

Masterminded by the ton's most clever countess, the secret society The Widow's Grace helps ill-treated widows regain their reputations, their families, and even find true love again-or perhaps for the very first time...

Surviving a shipwreck en route to London from Jamaica was just the start of personal maid Jemina St. Maur's nightmare. Suffering from amnesia, she was separated from her beloved toddler charge, Charlotte, imprisoned in Bedlam-and randomly assigned her employer's last name. She was freed only because barrister Daniel Thackery, Lord Ashbrook, mistakenly believes she is the sister-in-law he's never met. Desperate to unearth her true identity, Jemina's only option is to work outside the law-which means staying steps ahead of the formidable Daniel, no matter how strongly she is drawn to him...

Married only by proxy, now widowed by shipwreck, Daniel is determined to protect his little stepdaughter, Charlotte, and keep her in England. But to secure custody he must befriend the mysterious, alluring Jemina-and discover who she really is. Yet the closer they become, the more Daniel is tempted to break the very rules to which he's dedicated his life. As ruthless adversaries close in, will the truth require him and Jemina to sacrifice their one chance at happiness?
