Image of The Rogue Prince (Regency Flings)

Revenge is a double-edged sword and the ideal conflict for Maguire's smoldering love story. Likable characters turn a tried-and-true plot into much more -- a love story that reaches the heart with its inherent tenderness and pure romance.

Tom has come back from seven years in hell seeking revenge against the men who framed him for a crime he didn't commit. He recreates himself as the wealthy and mysterious prince of a South Seas island. But when he rescues a young boy from being crushed under a carriage and meets the lad's mother, Tom is forced to re-evaluate his scheme.

Margaret longs to return to the country, where she can protect her children and herself from her family's plans to marry her off again. One heated encounter with Tom has her dreaming of forbidden passion, yearning for a man who ignores her lame leg, seeing only her deep desire for love. As Tom moves his scheme forward, Maggie is caught in his web as well as in her brother's plot. Only her courage and belief in the power of love will conquer hate. (AVON, May, 380 pp., $6.99)
