Return to the adventures of the Liar's Club, a band of aristocrats and thieves working for the Crown, with a delightful duo who could be the world's greatest spy team—if they don't kill one another first.
Rose Lacey changed places with one of the club members to become the school's best student—except, perhaps, for Collis Treymayne. Collis is driven to rise to the top, and only Rose can stop him.
In their quest to be the best they have nearly destroyed the school, forcing the "headmaster" to find a way for them to work together. Their first mission is carefully planned, but when Rose makes an error in the name and address of their suspects, it leads them into real danger, and the safety of England hangs in the balance.
When the Prince Regent tags along on their test investigation, things really heat up. Collis and Rose discover a passion they never imagined, and if they get out of this, their love just might have a chance.
Bradley infuses this adventure with so much sexual tension and humor that you'll be enthralled. You'll laugh from the first page to the last and hold your breath as Collis, Rose and the Prince find themselves in one tight spot after another. The wonderful characters, witty dialogue and clever plot will have you wishing you were a Liar too. SENSUAL (Oct., 384 pp., $6.50)
