Ashworth returns to the charming
town of Winter Garden for a tale
rich in atmosphere, adventure and mystery, with a dash of humor and
a grand passion. She even brings
back characters from her earlier
novel in this delicious tale.

While on a mission for the Crown, Garrett Burke met and fell in love with Lady Ivy Wentworth. When his mission was thwarted, he believed Ivy betrayed him. Now, they're back at Winter Garden, forced to work together to unearth the secrets hidden deep within a deserted mansion.

Sexual tension blazes as these onetime lovers turned enemies reunite. As they creep through the house's secret passages, uncovering startling evidence of a legendary treasure, they rekindle a desire more dangerous then their mission--and far more satisfying. (Avon, May, 384 pp., $6.99)
