Uncover the mystery behind The Nude...
After Elsbeth, Countess Mercer's husband died fighting the French on the Peninsula, the young widow hoped to quietly spend the rest of her days with her uncle and his two spirited daughters. She never expected to find herself at the center of a very public scandal.

An exhibition of a painting titled The Nude that looks shockingly like Elsbeth has set all of the tongues in Regency London wagging. This isn't the first time the painter, Dionysus, has caused havoc in her life. Though she's never met him, she fell hopelessly in love with him through his haunting landscapes nearly a decade earlier. Like Cyrano de Bergerac using his poetry to lure a woman to love another, Dionysus used his paintings to trick Elsbeth into marrying the wrong man. She refuses to let him hurt her again. She vows to find him and force him to prove her innocence.

Nigel, the Marquess of Edgeware, a reclusive but powerful figure in the ton has connections with Dionysus and reasons to protect the artist's true identity. Soon after Elsbeth begins searching for Dionysus, Nigel abducts the feisty widow and insists she accept his help. When she stubbornly refuses, he decides that seducing the lady just might be the swiftest and most effective means of diverting her attentions. Thanks to her unhappy marriage, Elsbeth is wary of men. While Nigel's playful flirting amuses her, she thwarts his attempts to draw her closer until one moonlit night when she is caught breaking into Nigel's study.

Suddenly, she discovers she's torn between the artist who owns her heart and the man who can set it free.

The Reviews...
McFalls has a special gift for handling serious subjects with a gentle touch, an invaluable trait that will endear her to Regency romance fans.
--Patty Engelmann, BOOKLIST

This is one of the best historical romances that I have read in the last few years.
The author has a wonderful feel for the Regency period without going into excessive historical detail. Her story of a brave woman and her trials and tribulations had me enthralled from the beginning....so if you are a fan of historical romance or suspenseful mystery, this novel is just the thing for you.
~5 Stars!~
--Maura Frankman, The Romance Studio


McFalls' tale is a wonderful combination of mystery, suspense and romance. ~4 Stars!~
--Romantic Times BookReviews

Debauchery, greed, cruelty, gossip, and jealousy all have to be dealt with before PEACE comes for Nigel and Elsbeth. Relatives, friends, foes, and hangers-on all make the resolution of problems difficult. However, the exquisite love scenes take one's breath away. AH, SUCH GOOD READING!
~5 Books!~ Awarded Best Book of the Week!
--Camillia, Long and Short Romance Reviews

This was an absolutely divine read, both original and creative. ... The romance between Elspeth and Nigel and the road they traveled to reinstate her trust was a sensual delight while being sweet and poignant all at the same time. Bottom line, is that if looking for a wonderfully refreshing Regency read, this is surely the ticket for a wonderful summer beach read just be careful not to get burnt for staying out in the sun too long as you might not want to put this one down! ~5 Stars!~
--Marilyn Rondeau, Kwips and Kritiques

The Nude
[is] suspenseful and romantic. Dorothy McFalls captures the essence of Regency romance. The importance of the ton and public opinion, the helplessness of being a woman during that time, and the absolute authority a man has over his female relatives are all captured in this story. She weaves a story with mystery and murder mixed with erotic love play. It was hard to put this page turner down. You get so caught up in in her story, you feel like you are a part of the action. Do not miss this fresh voice in romance, you will surely miss a treat.
~5 Roses!~
--Lakisha, A Romance Review

The Nude by Dorothy McFalls is a tale of romance, intrigue, mystery, and about going on a journey to find oneself through the most powerful emotion, love. If you love regency, romance, and want to travel back in time to another era then you will certainly want to pick up this read. ~5 Stars!~
--Denisse, The Pen and Muse

I was certainly turning the pages... ~9 out of 10 Stars! ~
--Heather, Eye on Romance

THE NUDE is a wonderful refreshing Regency romantic suspense... ~5 Stars!~
--Harriette Klausner

As for what's inside, it's a moving tale that will make you feel... I would totally recommend The Nude to anyone looking for something a bit off the typical Regency formulaic track. It still has all of the necessary components we require in a good Regency novel but adds its own touch as well. I really liked it.
--Christine Shoup, Rakehell

...a wonderful blend of romance, second chances, mystery and murder

THE NUDE
is a winsome tale to be cherished by all impassioned readers.
