This wonderful, well-written Regency has emotion, blindingly hot sex, complicated characters and a surprise ending. This follow-up to Sin, an adventure about the sexual experimentation of the upper classes, has a variety of positions and combinations. The hero is to die for.

Dashiel Blackmore, Lord Swansborough, is a rake who takes part in the most depraved activities London has to offer. Women are being murdered, and Dash is suspect. Maryanne Hamilton has just completed the season and wants to meet someone more exciting. Secretly editing the erotica of retired prostitutes to help them earn money, she finds her glimpses of Dash thrilling. When they meet, Dash thinks Maryanne is a courtesan. Where will it all lead? (APHRODISIA, Apr., 304 pp., $12.95)
