Lucius White, a powerful blood-drinking shape-shifter, no longer feels anything. An encounter brings him in contact with Lucius Delavert, who so closely resembles Lucias that he is able to steal Lucas' memories and identity after his death.

The target of every matchmaking mama, he meets Theodora Becket. His attraction to her is so fierce that he allows her mother to plan a ball at his home just to keep Theo close. They spend a great deal of time together and indulge in some improper acts, but he erases Theo's memories of these encounters.

On the night of ball, Lucas meets Theo in the garden, and they are discovered in a compromising situation that forces their marriage. Their love for each other grows, until a wolf is injured and Lucas fears the truth about his identity will be revealed and he'll lose Theo forever.

This is a wonderful story filled with a plethora of secondary characters. There is mystery, adventure and lots of hot sex. Holly excels at erotic romance. Theo is a very strong heroine who faces much adversity and manages to come through stronger than before. Fans of vampire, werewolf and shape-shifter romances can savor this one. VERY SENSUAL (Oct., 336 pp., $7.99)
