What's it like to be torn between two halves of yourself? East meets West as Lee explores that topic with compassion and depth in a beautifully rendered love story that's intelligent, romantic and sexy.

Evelyn Stanton stands at the altar, about to wed the Earl of Warhaven, when a Chinese monk strides through the church claiming he's the long-lost heir to the title. Following the slaughter of his family in China, Jacob Cato found sanctuary in a temple. Before he can take his vows he must reclaim his English heritage and exact revenge on those behind the murders. Disciplined, determined and powerful, he is unprepared for his immediate attraction to Evelyn.

Evelyn remembers Jacob, and when others dispute his claim, she stands by his side. She's as much attracted by his exotic side as she is by his British heritage and reaches out to his wounded soul. It's Evelyn's love that teaches Jacob to release his desire for vengeance and choose the path that will lead them to happiness. (Leisure, Sep., 380 pp., $7.99)
