DEEPLY IN YOU
Murder and mayhem go hand in hand with love and deception in this outstanding series starter by Page. Anticipation of what comes next smolders on every page. Family plays an important part as Helena and Grey ward off one villain after another while fighting the distrust that threatens to keep them apart. There are two more Wicked Dukes waiting in the wings.
Helena Winsome insinuates herself into the household of the Duke of Greybrooke as a governess to his niece and nephews. She’s been commissioned to find proof that he’s a traitor to the Crown in order to pay her brother’s gambling debts. What she doesn’t expect is the strong attraction she feels for the duke. She doesn’t realize Grey is attracted to her until he asks her to become his mistress. Helena declines, but Grey considers this a challenge. She finally relents as she realizes being his mistress will afford her the opportunity to uncover his misdeeds. Grey unleashes hidden passion for Helena, but feels betrayed after he catches her in a lie. (APHRODISIA, Jul., 384 pp., $15.00)
