Phoebe Brackenton has embarked on a dangerous mission to help ordinary subjects escape unjust punishment and deportation. Her successes have drawn the attention of unscrupulous men and a midnight attack leaves her at the mercy of a notorious rake. Dare she trust him with her secret, her heart and her very life? Only love will reveal the answers to her dilemma, but her heart tells her she must not allow her situation to threaten him. Jo Ann Fergusons heroine in HIS LADY MIDNIGHT (2) suffers from an excess of sensibilities about her every move, but the overall story is a pleasant read. (Sep., 256 pp., $4.99)
