Margaret Rowe

Tempting Eden
Any Wicked Thing

Like her alter-ego Maggie, Margaret writes historicals. But while Maggie’s books are plenty hot, Margaret is a bit darker, edgier and the books are more sexually-charged.

ANY WICKED THING, a 2011 RT Reviewers Choice Awards nominee for Best Erotic Fiction, features a dissolute duke, a medieval scholar, a crumbling Yorkshire castle and a very wicked bargain. Night Owl Reviews gave AWT a 5 star Top Pick rating and calls it “incredibly hot and addictive.”

Margaret’s Berkley Heat debut TEMPTING EDEN is still available. TEMPTING EDEN began its life as Paradise, an edgy, erotic Regency Noir tale of deception and redemption. Heroine Eden Emery overcomes great odds to find heaven in her hero’s arms. You can read the cover copy and an excerpt on the Books page. Award-winning author Victoria Dahl says, “Tempting Eden is a deeply emotional story that offers both wicked heat and delicious connection.” Read more on
