Image of Fortune's Kiss

With the help of some out-of-the-ordinary characters -- including a palm-size Egyptian spider -- and period humor, Manuel delivers a pleasant story
about the importance of love and trust.

Lady Moira is forced to seek employment as a maid in her former home to gain information about a codicil in her stepfather's will. She meets Graham Foster, the man who gained her home by being the only legitimate heir. She tries o resist his charms, but when the sensual gentleman offers his help after the estate's solicitor is murdered, she accepts.

Together they investigate the mysterious death, the disappearing codicil and some secrets her loving stepfather may have kept. (Medallion, Mar., 416 pp., $7.95)
