The Muses of Mayfair leave England for an exotic Italian island where adventure, danger and love await. Once again McCabe illuminates the Regency's fascination with all things ancient, never letting the historical backdrop upstage the romance, but she doesn't probe deeply enough into her characters' motivations.

Leaving her secret identity as the Lily Thief behind, Clio Chase settles into a small farmhouse intending to live quietly, until she learns of a curse on her land and the arrival of her nemesis, the Duke of Averton. Their love/hate relationship is one reason she came to Italy. So why does she always end up in his arms, yearning for his kiss?

The duke knows Clio's secret and admires her for it. He has followed
her in order to protect her from being
caught up in antiquities thefts. But by
trying to keep Clio out of danger he draws them into greater peril. Yet
the gravest threat comes from the
passion that sizzles between them. (HARLEQUIN, May, 295 pp., $5.99)
