Once Dishonored


Formats & editions


Bestselling author Mary Jo Putney’s romantic Regency-set series features soldiers, spies—and the special redemption only love can bring . . .

A man who has lost his honor has nothing . . .

London, 1816. As a Royal Navy officer, Lucas Mandeville, Lord Foxton, has fought his share of battles on the high seas, followed by long years of imprisonment. But on this night, he’d rather be on the burning deck of a ship than in a ballroom, where it is just a matter of time before someone challenges him because of what happened on the Continent.

A woman who has lost her reputation is nothing . . .

When dark-haired beauty Kendra Douglas arrives, a whisper of scandal ripples through the ton. The disgraced divorcee’s entrance is an act of daring. Which is exactly why Lucas asks her to dance . . .

A couple who stands together has everything . . .

Unexpectedly, Lucas offers Kendra his aid in finding the evidence to regain her good name—and her beloved young son. Together they investigate the wicked conspiracy that destroyed her life, and in the midst of danger, find a deep love that will redeem them both—if only they can live long enough to build a future together.

Praise for Once Dishonored

“Praise for New York Times Bestselling Author Mary Jo Putney’s Rogues Redeemed series   “With superbly drawn characters (including historical figures such as Francis Scott Key); a setting so vivid one can taste the lemonade and smell the gunpowder; and a gripping plot that addresses the harsh realities of slavery, prejudice, cruelty, and abuse. . . . A story that deftly balances fascinating historical detail, adventure, and menace with a passionate romance.” —Library Journal   “Putney's commitment to historical research shines throughout. . . . Though suspense and adventure drive this story forward, the love at its center sets it apart.” —Kirkus Reviews   “An impeccably written book that realistically integrates the cost of the Napoleonic Wars into a compelling story that neatly balances dangerous adventures and passionate romance.” —Booklist    “Filled with action and adventure and spiced with an intriguing glimpse of American history . . . not to be missed.” —Bookpage    “A Baltimore native, Putney knows her history well and makes good use of that knowledge as she brings an English hero and heroine into the second war for America’s freedom. Readers who savor details for the era will find everything they desire.”  —RT Book Reviews   “A page turner tale.” —Publishers Weekly”
