Libertine, court poet, crony of King Charles II, the brilliant, witty, and damaged William DeVeres get's a second chance at life and love when he is unexpectedly reunited with his childhood sweetheart, Elizabeth Walters, a strong and determined young woman who knows who and what she wants.

"Fueled by sizzling sensuality and sharp wit, James' refreshingly different historical deftly re-creates the glittering, colorful court of Charles II while also delivering an unforgettable love story."
BOOKLIST starred review, John Charles.

Judith James juggles poetry, Restoration court culture, and fairytale references with an almost perfect sense of timing, and the result is a world that springs vividly to life... I find myself wanting to compare it to something, but there is really nothing out there quite like this."
Lynn Spenser All About Romance.

Nominated as Best British Isles Historical by Romantic Times, a Romantic Times Top Pick and AAR Desert Island Keeper, Libertine's Kiss features a hero based on John Wilmot, the notorious libertine, poet, and friend of King Charles II.

"Historical details, poetic quotations and fictional characters based on real individuals blend perfectly in Libertine's Kiss. William and Elizabeth's story is compelling, sexy as can be and expertly told. Libertine's Kiss is everything a historical romance should be and more. Don't miss this one!

From Booklist:

When William de Veres turns up at Elizabeth’s home late one night, she asks no questions, but instead takes him in, tends his wounds, and gives him one glorious night of passion. William never knew that Elizabeth’s act of charity cost her greatly. Once Cromwell’s men discover that Elizabeth gave aid to one of Charles’ cavaliers, they seize her family’s estates, thus forcing Elizabeth into an unwanted marriage in order to survive. As a widow, Elizabeth arrives in the Merry Monarch’s court hoping to convince the king to restore her lands. William, now Earl Rivers and the court’s official poet, knows he must help his old friend. He knows exactly how to repackage Elizabeth so that she can capture the king’s attention, but what this infamous libertine doesn’t expect is that he will fall in love with his new creation instead. Fueled by sizzling sensuality and sharp wit, James’ refreshingly different historical deftly re-creates the glittering, colorful court of Charles II while also delivering an unforgettable love story. --John Charles
