When Lady Alexandra Marshall, the first woman anthropologist at the British Museum, has her career threatened, she turns to the one man she has tried to forget, Sir Christopher Donally.

A self-made entrepreneur, Christopher has been forced to rebuild his life after his disastrous—yet passion-filled—marriage to Alexandra and to forget the chemistry they shared. He agrees to save Alexandra's reputation by exposing the traitor who is exchanging jeweled artifacts for fakes, if she will introduce his sister to society.

Following a tangled trail of clues into a labyrinth of lies and hidden secrets, Alex and Christopher uncover the shocking truth about the thief—and their past. Most of all, they discover that a love as powerful as theirs can never die.

Entwining a superb mystery with a soul-searing and emotionally intense romance is something Thomas achieves with ease. With its complex plot, captivating characters and unforgettable love story, this is a beautiful novel that portrays the deepest of emotions. SENSUAL (Apr., 384 pp., $5.99)
