Carlyle continues to stretch the boundaries of her writing by creating characters we truly care about who are as unique as her plotlines. In the second installment of her trilogy, she presents a deceptively fragile heroine and a dark, tormented hero who confront the dark past.

Gareth Lloyd, aka Gabriel Ventor, part owner of Neville Shipping, is rich, but he has never forgotten that once he was a wild urchin, tossed from his wealthy, titled family. Now he's thrust back into that world as the newly minted Duke of Warneham.

The last duke's lovely and fragile wife, Antonia, has been twice wed
and twice widowed. Ugly rumors
haunt her: Did she kill her husband? Is she mentally "delicate"? Though
she wants her freedom, she needs Gareth to prove her innocence and give her the love, respect, passion
and independence she craves -- if
she is brave enough to take the love
he offers. These wounded souls will have to heal one another while facing the gravest of dangers and the darkest of secrets. (Pocket, Aug., 400 pp., $7.50)
