Sir Richard Blythe, playwright, soldier, confidant to King Charles, is anxious to regain possession of his ancestral home. Unfortunately, the widow Elissa Long-bourne and her young son legally own it.

The two marry at the King's command. Richard is ecstatic at returning to run his home until he realizes that Elissa and her lawyer have out-maneuvered him in the marriage agreement, reducing Richard to being her chattel! Determined Elissa refuses to cower before another husband and will do anything to protect her son's inheritance.

The battle lines are drawn between the newlyweds, except in bed. Passionate nights and hot embraces tame the proud lovers. But their fragile love is shattered when Elissa's son's life is threatened, and Richard proves the most to gain.

Delightful. Witty. Passionate. With A ROGUE'S EMBRACE, Margaret Moore continues to enchant her fans. This one can not be missed! SENSUAL. (On-sale Feb., 384 pp., $5.99)
