Miss Clarissa Derhurst is convinced that only a seasoned, reformed rake can see past her beauty to the passionate soul underneath in A DANGEROUS COMPROMISE (4). Lord Wolviston hasnt a rakish bone in his body, but does have a distinct yearning for adventure. When he overhears the delectable Miss Derhurst condemn him as a respectable bore, he decides that his rebirth as a rake is the adventure he yearns for. Thus begins a game of cat and mouse between a tempestuous, kindhearted beauty and a strong-willed man who finds that pretending to be a rake has turned into a double-edged sword which might cost him the love of his conquest. This second Regency by talented newcomer Shannon Donnelly is a clever romp with two utterly charming protagonists who are clearly meant for each other. (Jun., 288 pp., $4.99)
