THE BRIDE WORE SCARLET
The second book about the enigmatic men of the St. James Society is a sizzling romantic adventure. The nonstop pace and well-crafted prose deliver a fabulous reading experience.
The St. James provides the ideal cover for some of England’s most interesting and adventurous men and it’s the club Anaîs de Rohan wants to join. Though she has a sponsor, the members, especially Geoffrey, Lord Bessett, do not want a woman in their midst. They present her with a challenge: Pose as Bessett’s wife on a mission to rescue a kidnapped child. From Britain to Brussels they follow a ruthless villain’s trail. Though Bessett does not believe Anaîs’ ability with the tarot will aid their mission, he must admit that her cleverness, beauty and sensuality are assets, and she cannot deny he is the most fascinating man she has ever met. Their attraction explodes into passion as they near the culmination of their mission. (AVON, Aug., 380 pp., $7.99)
