About the Author
During her frequent travels through England, Liz Carlyle always packs her pearls, her dancing slippers, and her whalebone corset, confident in the belief that eventually she will receive an invitation to a ball or a rout. Alas, none has been forthcoming. While waiting, however, she has managed to learn where all the damp, dark alleys and low public houses can be found.
Liz hopes she has brought just a little of the nineteenth century alive for the reader in her popular novels, which include the trilogy of "One Little Sin, Two Little Lies", and "Three Little Secrets", as well as "The Devil You Know, A Deal With the Devil", and "The Devil to Pay". Please visit her at www.lizcarlyle.com, especially if you're giving a ball.
