Author(s): 

Gray’s new trilogy begins with three desperate princesses embarking on a charade in order to uncover the culprit behind an assassination plot. This desire- in-disguise romance, with its fast pace, engaging characters, touching humor and near-erotic sensuality is an emotional feast — just what readers expect from a storyteller with Gray’s imagination.

When Emilie and her sisters arrive in London seeking asylum, their uncle devises a unique plan to keep them safe: disguising them and stashing them in separate locations. A former soldier, scarred, missing a hand and deserted by his wife, the Duke of Ashland is an imposing figure. When they’re caught in a barroom brawl, Ashland decides the incognito Emilie is the ideal tutor for his bookish son. Emilie is confident in her ruse. But a mistake draws her into a secret liaison with Ashland — who hides his desires behind a mask of his own. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jun., 400 pp., $7.99)
