Image of A Dangerous Beauty (Widows Club, Book 1)

Nash, well known for
her traditional Regency romances, moves gracefully into the longer historical novel with the first in a merry widows series destined to make her a star. Readers will immediately take to her clever, passionate, emotional characters and wondrous love story. They'll revel in the dowager's antics, shed a tear at the wealth
of poignancy and cheer for the lovers, while eagerly awaiting the next story.

Rosamunde Baird has lived through one scandal and has no reason to seek another. When she agrees to spend a season with the Dowager Duchess of Helston and her covey of ladies, she believes she can avoid trouble. How wrong she is! Trouble awaits her in the form of the dowager's grandson, the charismatic Luc St. Aubyn. Known as "Lord Fire and Ice," Luc has a reputation for igniting passion one moment and a chill the next. He is a man of mystery and mischief who wrote a witty, caustic dictionary under a nom de plume and hides deep emotional scars.

Luc never expects to be enchanted by Rosamunde. He tempts her adventurous side with wild morning horseback rides and swimming lessons, but she's drawn to his inner depth. As a new scandal looms, Luc and Rosamunde dare to risk all for the sake of love. (Avon, Jun., 384 pp., $5.99)
