THE DANGEROUS MR. RYDER
Allen's latest adventure romance is a roller-coaster ride that sweeps readers through Europe and into the relationship between a very proper baroness and a very improper spy. The quick pace and hold-your-breath escape plans turn this love story into a one-night read that will have you cheering for the appealing characters.
Knowledge is a dangerous thing, and Jack has been assigned to escort Eva to safety. They flee, using disguises, their wits and all the time watching their backs. Danger ignites passion, and though Eva and Jack know romance complicates their mission they cannot resist a chance for happiness. But what will happen once they reach England? Can love overcome their stations in life? (Harlequin, Jul., 300 pp., $5.99)
