RT Rating

Allen's daring, sexy and, yes, outrageous spin-off of The Dangerous Mr. Ryder gently borders on erotic romance because of the manner in which she plays out her characters' fantasies (including a marvelous bear rug!) without ever losing sight of Regency mores.

A young widow, Lady Belinda Felsham needs a hero when
he suddenly walks into her bedroom. Recently returned from Waterloo and drunk as a skunk, Ashe Reynard, Viscount Dereham comes "home" to find a strange woman in his bed and
a bear on the floor.

Bel tends his aching head and realizes she's found her ideal lover. In her innocence she makes the outrageous proposal he keep his key and visit her at night. Already infatuated with her, Ashe boldly meets the challenge, and they begin a wildly exciting affair. Ashe allows Bel to play out all her
fantasies and some of his.

Though neither wants to fall in
love, Cupid plays havoc with their plans, and they're soon caught by
their passions and a sizzling game
of who can catch whom first. (Harlequin, Aug., 300 pp., $5.99)
