This Forgotten Princess tale is trademark Jordan: dramatic, fast-paced and sparkling with wit and passion. Take one brooding hero, add a feisty heroine and the hunt for the perfect wife, and you have an intriguing and heart-stealing tale.

Lord Logan McKinney has come to London because he needs a wealthy wife. Heiress Cleo has chosen a safe, older man to wed — one whom she won’t love and who won’t want an heir — but when she meets Logan her heart stops. Logan sees Cleo as the one woman who fires his blood and is determined to make her his. But wooing the stubborn Cleo is no easy task. Logan must work to ease her fear of falling in love. He must gain her trust, too. Jealousy has Cleo fleeing his bed, until she puts her pride aside to save him. (AVON, Aug., 380 pp., $7.99)
