Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The Inferno Club - a scandalous gathering of wealthy libertines and highborn rakehells devoted to their wicked pleasures. So the Club's members are known to London Society.

But little does the world suspect the true purpose of the Inferno Club--or the danger that looms over England--which these select, powerful lords are secretly sworn to fight.

To London's aristocracy, the Inferno Club is a scandalous society of men no proper young lady would acknowledge. But though they are publicly notorious for pursuing all manner of debauchery, in private they are warriors who would do anything to protect king and country. The Marquess of Rotherstone has decided it's time to restore the family's good name. But as a member of the Inferno Club, he knows there is only one way to redeem himself in Society's eyes: marry a lady of impeccable beauty and breeding, whose reputation is, above all, spotless. Someone quite unlike Daphne Starling. True, she's temptingly lovely, but a jilted suitor has nearly ruined her reputation. Still, Max cannot resist her allure - or the challenge of proving London's gossips wrong. He would do anything to win her hand - and show that even a wicked marquess can make a perfect husband.

Booklist Review

Daphne Starling is known for her kind heart and willingness to introduce those new to society into the ton, but she will have her work cut out for her with Max St. Albans, Marquess of Rotherstone. Even though Daphne is more than intrigued by the deliciously dangerous Max, she knows that reforming a scandalous rake is a lost cause. Used to women being dazzled by his power and wealth, Max doesn't know what to do when Daphne rejects his offer of marriage.The first in a new Regency-set series featuring the members of the notorious Inferno Club proves that when it comes to mixing smolderingly sexy romance and nail-biting suspense, Foley has no rivals.--Charles, John Copyright 2009 Booklist
