Genre: Historical Romance
The de Warenne Dynasty continues as Elizabeth
Quiet, plain Lizzie has always idolized Tyrell, even though she has no chance of attracting the handsome young nobleman. Not only are their stations in life different, but he adores beautiful women like her sister, Anne.
On the night of a masquerade ball, Tyrell requests they meet at midnight.
Two years later, Lizzie returns from Ireland with a son. The child's striking resemblance to Tyrell points to his paternity. Though their families press Lizzie, she refuses to give up the child. She creates even more scandal when she and the child move into Tyrell's home.
Joyce brilliantly delivers an intensely emotional and engrossing romance where love overcomes deceit, scandal and pride. She takes a standard "secret baby" plotline and turns it into an intelligent love story with smart, appealing and strong characters. Readers will savor this latest from a grand mistress of the genre. SENSUAL (Sep., 553 pp., $7.50)
