Avon spotlights the highly intriguing debut of Alina Adams in THE FICTITIOUS MARQUIS (2). A young lady of quality arranges the escape of a notorious rogue in exchange for his services as temporary bridegroom. What dreadful secret does she hide that requires her to resort to such desperate measures? Although this lively tale lacks credibility as a Regency romance, it sparkles with the kind of wit and ingenuity that make Ms. Adams a favorite with period romance fans who enjoy a broader format.
