Dark, sumptuous, powerful, emotional adventure romances with a touch of
the paranormal are Bellis' trademark. She sweeps you into a world as romantic and sensual as it is dangerous and mysterious and allows your fantasies free rein. Her strong voice and powerful plot put her on the top of this month's paranormal historical readers list.

Hurt by her fiance's long absences, Helen Barrett breaks off her engagement to Viscount Redfern, Nicholas Saville, and quickly finds herself the object of an earl's attention. Though the earl makes her uneasy, she accepts a magnificent sapphire necklace from him and is soon under his spell.

Deeply in love with Helen, Nicholas must still fulfill his promise to England's spymaster and is frequently out of the country. He can't tell her about his double life, so he must accept her decision to break things off. But he can't accept her "friendship" with the earl, the man he suspects will lead him to the murderous Hellfire League he's investigating. As the pieces of his investigations fall into place, Redfern realizes the danger Helen is in. Can he undermine the earl's power over her and set her free while saving the country? (Signet Eclipse, Apr., 308 pp., $6.99)
