An adept storyteller, Camp takes an independent, beautiful American widow and a handsome though somewhat stoic English lord and merges them in this highly satisfying romance filled with sexual tension, misunderstanding and political intrigue that holds your interest.

After the accidental death of her husband, Sir Edmund Scarborough, during their stay in Italy, Lady Eleanor brings his ashes back to England. As guardian to Edmund's sisters, she finds herself at odds with her domineering mother-in-law and Edmund's uncle, Lord Anthony Neale.

Eleanor hasn't seen Anthony in more than a year, and he's more handsome than she remembers but still as arrogant as ever. Though there's a physical attraction between them, they are soon at cross purposes. Anthony thinks that Eleanor murdered his nephew; she proves him wrong in his assumption.
When a rash of break-ins beset Eleanor, Anthony comes to her aid.

As they delve into the reason for these mishaps, their passion grows and their discoveries bring a dangerous threat
to Eleanor. (HQN, Mar., 384 pp., $6.99)
