Nothing ignites Marcus Ashford, the Earl of Westfield's emotions more than the thought of being near his former fiancee Lady Elizabeth Hawthorne. As one of the Crown's foremost cryptographers, he's been assigned to protect the young widow and the code she possesses.

Dark secrets and a hidden journal were responsible for her husband's death. Now, Elizabeth is being threatened by his enemies and must entrust her safety to the one man she can't be near. She jilted him, but has never forgotten the rising desire he ignited in her -- a passion so strong it scared her.

Marcus will not rest until Elizabeth is in his bed, willing to surrender everything to him. But as they crave each other, a sinister foe plots their demise.

Day spins a marvelously sensual novel of suspense that tantalizes our senses, as well as challenges our minds to solve the mystery surrounding the lovers. Day is a writer whose flair for sensuality and storytelling will take her far. VERY SENSUAL (Aug., 350 pp., $15.00)
