Cook's fourth novel in her popular Ashton/Rosemoor family series is a sensual, emotional and well-written story. She thrusts readers into the excitement, making this a yummy
treat for all Regency fans.

Lady Eleanor Ashton is prepared to marry without love. Never did she imagine that her father would pick the one man she's been secretly pining for since she was 16.

Frederick Stoneham, heir to a barony, agrees to an arranged marriage to the girl next door. He's floored by his fiancee's beauty and grace, but both beg off the engagement: Eleanor because she's scared he will break her heart; Frederick because he thinks he's not worthy of her. Eleanor promptly sets out to find a new fiance -- with Frederick in tow! What follows is a passionate, exhilarating dance as the lovebirds circle around each other until they finally succumb to their desires. But they have to learn to trust and forget in order to pave a new road to happiness. (Zebra, Jun., 352 pp., $5.99)
