A native Texan, Katherine lives near Dallas with her husband and children.From Booklist:
Sutcliffe winds a tightly twisted plot around Lady Destiny Fontaine Chesterfield, a virgin widow whose gay husband committed suicide just months into their marriage and who then discovers carnal pleasures with a stranger in a forest glen. Lord Jason Batson is Cobra, a covert mercenary in service to the crown and specializing in deception, disguise, and assassination. His next target is Lord Fontaine, a diplomat in India who may have turned traitor. Meanwhile Destiny learns that her secret lover may pose a danger to her beloved father, so she sets out for India on board a ship captained by a hideously disfigured but kindly captain who is willing to marry her to give her unborn child a name. Her beloved Aunt Diana stows away on the ship, which also carries a beautiful young child, Lord Jason's daughter. The dangers faced on their adventurous journey are matched by perils in India as Sutcliffe renders graphically realistic detail and rigorous physical encounters in this compelling historical romance.
