Kate Bateman’s Bow Street Bachelors are men who work undercover for London’s first official police force, and find themselves wedding the women they’ve sworn to protect in the most outrageous ways. In the first book in this historical Regency romance series, This Earl of Mine, a shipping heiress, Georgiana Caversteed, forms a secret pact with a criminal rogue who’s actually the son of the late Earl of Morcott and the two end up in a marriage of convenience. The fun, flirty Regency romance continues in To Catch an Earl.
“Dashing, daring, and deliciously romantic!” — USA Today bestselling author Caroline Linden
Kate Bateman, (also writing as K. C. Bateman), is the #1 bestselling author of Regency, Victorian, and Renaissance historical romances, including the Secrets & Spies series: To Steal a Heart, A Raven’s Heart and A Counterfeit Heart. All her books feature her favorite feisty, intelligent heroines (badasses in bodices!), wickedly inappropriate banter, and sexy, snarky heroes you want to both strangle and kiss.
Kate wrote her first historical romance in response to a $1 bet with her husband who rashly claimed she'd 'never finish the thing.' She gleefully proved him wrong. When not traveling to exotic locations 'for research', she leads a not-so-secret double life as a fine art appraiser and on-screen antiques expert for several TV shows in the UK, each of which has up to 2.5 million viewers. She splits her time between Illinois and her native England, and writes despite three inexhaustible children and that number-loving husband who still owes her that dollar.
