A PRIVATE DUEL WITH AGENT GUNN
Genre: Historical Romance, England, Victorian Period
Fans of the Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series won’t be disappointed as Stone weaves a detective story that entices readers to keep turning the pages. This sexy thriller pits unlikely characters together in a taut plot, twisting threads of the storyline in unexpected ways while inviting readers to solve the mystery along with Stone’s characters. Stone understands the art of romantic suspense and superbly merges it with history.
Phineas “Finn” Gunn is a reclusive man — except when it comes to crime-solving; then, he is a man with a mission. Long ago, in Paris, Finn became involved with prima ballerina Catriona de Dovia Willoughby, a suspected anarchist. Now, anarchists are holding her brother hostage and Catriona needs Finn’s help to recover stolen jewels to pay the ransom. As the walls between them break down, and the flames of their old passion are rekindled, Finn and Catriona will either follow their hearts or lose everything. (POCKET, Dec., 345 pp., $7.99)
