She was his savior
Banished from London for her reckless behaviour Lady Miranda Sinclair is robbed by a dashing highwayman en route to the country. By offering him a kiss in lieu of the jewels she had to leave behind, she commits the very type of act that caused her exile. When her dour guardians extend her punishment to performing charitable work at the local orphanage, she's further tempted by the home's owner, a provincial gentleman who stirs her passion in a most wicked way.
He was her downfall
Desperate to save his orphanage from financial catastrophe, Montgomery "Fox" Foxcroft leads a double life as a highwayman. The arrival of wealthy, well-connected Miranda, whose kiss he can't forget, presents a lawful opportunity to increase his coffers. His problems seem solved--until she rejects his suit. Out of options and falling for the heiress, Fox must risk what principles he has left and take advantage of her wicked ways--even if it ruins them both.
Another freebie download that I managed to get hold of in February, at the time of writing this post it is still showing as free HERE (listed price £8.34). Obviously, if you are reading this post retrospectively I cannot guarantee that it is still available as a free download.

A tale of a fundamentally good girl behaving very badly, her banishment by cold and unfeeling parents (maybe that had a lot to do with the bad behaviour?) and the redemption that being loved and needed can bring.
I absolutely loved Fox and the way he reacted to Miranda. What girl doesn't love a smoking hot hero that works his butt of to save orphans?
I know I point it out a lot, but there were a few typographical and grammatical errors (it seems that it is just about impossible to find an ebook without them), and I it would be nice to seem them fixed.
I snagged this as a freebie download, but I would happily pay to buy this offering by Ms Burke and am looking forward to reading the whole of her series, Secrets and Scandals.
For me a 4 star read all the way, and highly recommended.
