Image of A Reckless Beauty (Becket Novel)

With her Beckets of Romney Marsh series, Michaels has created a soap opera with wonderful characters, dark family secrets, exciting historical events and passion.

When Fanny's beloved brother Rain joins Wellington, she cuts her hair, dons a uniform and follows him to Brussels. She's quickly unmasked, however, and Rain asks officer and spy Valentine Clement to see to her safety. Clement knows the coming battle is no place for a girl, but when she's caught in the line of fire he rescues her, and when Rain is presumed dead he escorts her home to grieve.

At Romney Marsh, Clement is drawn into the family's secrets and realizes their ruthless enemy played a role in Rain's disappearance. He'll do anything for the Beckets, especially innocent Fanny. (HQN, Sep., 370 pp., $6.99)
