Logan follows The Sins of Midnight with another thriller. This time Lady Maura Daventry investigates the truth about her mother's tragic death, only to become a killer's target. Logan enlivens the plot with a ready-made conflict between Maura and the son of the man who supposedly murdered her mother -- quite an intriguing scenario! Using her talents to propel both the suspense and the romance from a slow start to a stunning climax, Logan has you hooked and eager for the final installment.

After discovering her deceased mother's diary, Lady Maura
is positive her mother loved her father far too much to commit adultery and
be involved in a crime of passion. Her investigation leads her into the ballrooms and bedchambers of several suspects.

She's sure she'll uncover the truth, until she encounters Gabriel, the Duke of Hawksley, the man whose father murdered her mother. Though Gabriel firmly believes her mother was a wanton, he cannot deny his attraction to Maura, who appears so innocent, sweet and sensual. He can't keep his mind or his hands off her, and while he's determined to protect her from everyone, he can't save her from himself. As their relationship grows and passion explodes, their investigation heats up, leading them to the truth. (Avon, May, 384 pp., $5.99)
