HIS FAVORITE MISTRESS
The final volume in the Mistress trilogy begins with a bold assassination attempt, and Warren keeps the tension high until the end. Not only does the plot fly, the sexual tension and heated love scenes are riveting. Warren senses what readers desire in their fantasies and gives it to them tenfold.
But who is he fooling? Who's going to protect the lovely girl from him? Gabriella easily slips into her new life, flitting through ballrooms and soirees like a lady of the ton. She enchants everyone, which only fuels Wyvern's desire for her. When they're caught in a compromising situation Wyvern insists they marry. They're compatible in bed, but life is not as simple out of the bedroom. Making a marriage work is difficult, and Gabriella and Wyvern have a lot to learn. (Ballantine, Jan., 384 pp., $6.99)
