CONFESSIONS OF A LITTLE BLACK GOWN
Genre: Historical Romance
A staple of every woman's wardrobe, the little black dress is the key in Boyle's delightful love story with a modern twist. The author showcases her talent for humor, intrigue and passion in this keeper.
Thalia Langley and her sister make their own mischief, including breaking the American pirate, Dashwell, out of a British prison. But when Tally loses her luggage and is given a trunk holding an alluring black gown, she finds real trouble.
Secret agent Lord Larken has been assigned the task of killing Dashwell. Disguised as the Vicar Ryder, he heads for a house party where he's sure to find the Langley sisters. Some matchmaking and an overwhelming attraction thrust Tally and Ryder together, until Tally uncovers his charade. Now she must find a way to hide Dashwell, throw Larken off the track and keep from falling madly in love. But those aren't her only problems; Larken doesn't want to kill Dashwell, who was his friend before the American became involved in the War of 1812, plus he needs to find the woman who owns the black gown to expose a ring of French spies. A bit of madness and mayhem ensures their romance takes unexpected twists until the chilling climax. (AVON, Apr., 380 pp., $6.99)
