Reader, be deliciously warned: You'll need a fan or asbestos gloves to keep cool while devouring Page's heated tale. Not only is the sexual tension powerful and the many love scenes hotter than hot (with BDSM), the mystery and growing romance will keep you riveted too.
The members play out erotic and often cruel fantasies -- sometimes with their unwilling wives, and Jane is trapped in a whirl of sensuality she's unprepared to view. Fortunately, the man she's procured for the night is on a mission of his own. Delphina's brother Christian Sutcliffe, Lord Wickham, is also there searching for his sister, and he claims Jane to protect her from the reckless, lecherous lords. As their investigation heats up, so does their charade, turning their search into a passionate affair that leads from one erotic encounter to another. (DELL, Feb., 403 pp., $6.99)
