As she did in Master of Temptation, Jordan sweeps us into the world of the Guardians, a secret society dedicated to protecting England, as another member is caught in a whirlwind of intrigue and passion.

With his legendary charm and lust for danger, Viscount Thorne is ready for anything—except marrying the woman his father has chosen. Thorne's primary concern is unmasking a traitor, but to complete his mission he needs Lady Diana Sheridan's help.

When Diana sets out to protect Thorne's ward, Amy, from an unwanted suitor, she has no idea she will become part of his charade to catch a killer. Diana reluctantly agrees to masquerade as Thorne's fiancée, and they find themselves falling deeper and deeper in love and becoming embroiled in the mystery surrounding the Guardians' enemy.

Jordan completely captivates with a powerful, sensual, exciting story that will leave you breathless and a dazzling, sexy romance. Jordan knows how to create a magical realm within the realistic world of Regency England. VERY SENSUAL (Dec., 400 pp., $6.99)
