A COMPROMISED LADY
Genre: Historical Romance
Rolls starts off with a mystery and unravels it gradually. The sexual tension is strong between the hero and heroine, and it seems that every time they begin to get close, another bit of the mystery is revealed, and they are kept apart. This technique keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end. Rolls has another winner in this sequel to His Lady's Mistress.
Richard Blakehurst has no need to marry an heiress and no inclination to wed any time in the near future. Dorothea Winslow is forced by her father to re-enter society after eight years of mourning her dead fiance. Richard and Thea were friends as young children, and their friendship is quickly rekindled and grows deeper into love. Despite her father's commands and her feelings for Richard, Thea declares she will never marry. Richard is determined to discover the reasons behind Thea's deep unhappiness and fear so that he can make her his wife. (HARLEQUIN, Sep., 304 pp., $5.99)
