Continuing her latest series, Thomas sweeps readers to the wild borderlands where treachery, secrets and passion erupt in a tale that is as typical of the border setting as it is of the genre. Though there are few surprises, Thomas’ keen sense of atmosphere and history will charm readers.

He will hold the trump card if he can locate Hereford’s missing daughter, Lady Roselyn. A chance meeting with Rose convinces Ruark she is the lady and he takes her captive. As they journey to her father’s holdings, Ruark falls in love with the enemy. Rose hopes the ring will bring her the love of a father she has never known. Love, loyalties, family bonds and deep desires are tested when the lovers reach their goal, but which will win out? (AVON, Jul., 380 pp., $7.99)
