Rebecca, Lady Cornish, has lost not one husband, but two, earning her the title of the Black Widow.

Ludovic Dunne specializes in solving tricky problems, and when he is approached to learn all he can about the Black Widow, he is intrigued. It doesn't take long to discover the truth, but it costs him. Lonely and cut off from family and friends, Rebecca wants nothing more than to trust another soul, but she has been betrayed at every turn. Ludovic carries his own scars that drive him to right injustice. As their pasts collide and enemies seek to destroy them, Rebecca understands that when it comes to love, there is never a sacrifice too great!

"Unmasking Sin" is a sensuous historical romance that is packed with intrigue, slander and treason!
