Now, she adds another clue to the complicated plot. Only a mistress of the genre could hook you, and hold you in her net, eagerly anticipating her next move.
He does not suspect that she is compelled by a foe to bring him home and open the door to the enemy. But Lisette falls in love with Rain and once within the shelter of his family, she understands their entwined family histories. But will Rain and the Beckets' love shield them from her father's diabolical mechanisms? We shall find out next month! (HQN, Oct., 376 pp., $6.99)
