Miss Anne Marsh, a rector's daughter, is plunged headlong into danger when a thief's error thrusts her into "Wild Lord Jack" Devoran St.George's arms.

Jack has returned from the East, where he was searching for a stolen, sacred fossil. When Anne inadvertently obtains the fossil, Jack vows to protect her from his enemy's schemes.

Jack escorts Anne to safety at his parents' country estate, but the journey becomes a wild adventure. They flee stalkers and seek shelter in a cottage, where Anne seizes an opportunity to learn about passion and love before marrying her staid fiancé. But after this night Jack and Anne are bound by powerful ties and their connection to the fossil.

Though an exhilarating and highly sensual adventure romance, Night of Sin is a deeply introspective story of a troubled man coming to terms with his past misdeeds and the spirited woman who gives him a chance at salvation.

Ross' (aka Jean Ross Ewing) gift for creating masterful plots and memorable characters is at its height as Anne and Jack open themselves to the joy of love. VERY SENSUAL (Jan., 416 pp., $13.00)
