THE PERFECT KISS
Gracie continues the Perfect series with a powerfully emotional, steal-your-heart story. While her engaging characters play out a sensual cat-and-mouse game, they discover that the pain of the past
cannot diminish the power of love.
This magical romance not only warms your heart, it raises your temperature too. Brava!
The last of the Merridew sisters, Grace fears she is unworthy of love, and three years of being on the "market" have proven that fact. She decides to travel, but before she can leave she must help a shy friend who is petrified of marrying her betrothed, the big, bad Dominic Wolfe.
A rake and a rogue, Dominic will inherit a vast estate when he marries. But he finds himself more interested in his fiancee's plain companion than in his betrothed. Grace doesn't mince words and isn't afraid of Dominic. No woman has caught his attention that way, and he's out to confirm that he can live up to his scandalous reputation, even if he has to seduce Grace to prove it. But being pursued by a man whose kisses make it impossible to think is a temptation practical Grace cannot resist. (Berkley Sensation, Jan., 400 pp., $6.99)
