Kit Fox is one of the most dashing heroes of the season. An orphan who was raised by a loving woman who took in strays, Kit became one of England's finest spies. He's an honest thief, but stealing hearts is not one of his usual gambits. Then he meets Lily Bancroft, a princess in exile.
Kit has been "asked" to investigate the Bororavian court, specifically Lily's fiancé, Gregory, who may have brought anarchists into the country as part of his entourage.
Lily plans to seduce Kit to escape marriage to the tyrannical Gregory, while Kit works to stop a dangerous plot and win Lily's heart.
Susan Sizemore's beautifully crafted characters steal your heart. The love story is strong and lush, and the antics of Kit's eccentric family make turning the pages even more fun. You'll enjoy every word! SENSUAL (Jan., 400 pp., $5.99)
