RT Rating

Viscount Grantham, Colin McElreath, member of the Free Fellows League, dedicated to serving his country, has vowed never to marry. But he's in a bind when someone impersonating him adopts his nom de guerre and elopes with the daughter of a peer.

Gillian Davies believes Colin Fox's pledge of undying love, until he disappears and a stranger with the same name comes to her rescue. Then her father blackmails Colin into marrying her to avoid a scandal. Colin has no choice. He must protect the league at all costs. He just never expects to fall in love with his brilliant bride, who is the bait in the league's plan to capture a traitor.

Lee continues to build the foundation for the Free Fellows League series in this highly sensual, entertaining read. Though the romance is strong, Lee's continual weaving of the large cast of characters from the series into this novel slows the pace. But it only makes us more eager to read about the next Free Fellow. SENSUAL (Apr., 380 pp., $6.99)
