The Black Phoenix, head of a secret society dedicated to righting the wrongs committed by high-ranking members of the ton, "invites" Jarrett, Lord Dering, to visit Paradise, a hedonistic resort. He is to find irrevocable evidence against the owner of the resort or face swift retribution.

Fleeing a scandalous past, actress Kate Falshaw acts as the Black Phoenix's agent. Posing as the desirable Gaetana, she enthralls men in Paradise, waiting for the moment her partner arrives to strike down the evil that shadows the resort. Soon arrogant Jarrett and hardened Kate are caught in the dark and dangerous seductions of Paradise and trapped by their growing passion, a tangled web of desire and deceit and a priceless manuscript.

Kerstan holds you spellbound with another utterly enthralling exploration of the dark underbelly of society. Like a true seductress, she lures readers into this intrigue-riddled, passion-filled romance and has you begging for more. SENSUAL (Nov., 372 pp., $6.99)
