THE SCARLET SPY
Genre: Historical Romance
Merlin's Maidens, young ladies taken from London's slums and trained to spy and seduce, are ready for another mission. Here's a third opportunity to revel in Pickens' skills for creating an edge-of-your-seat thriller that captivates.
Sofia's training in ballroom and battlefield skills, as well as her beauty and spirit, make her ideal for a delicate mission. She is to infiltrate the highest levels
She could easily succeed but for the attention of Lord Deverill Osborne, whose role as a spy makes him suspicious of Sofia. They end up working on the same case, associating with the same dashing and dangerous people. It becomes impossible to ignore the sparks between them, and once they know they share a covert operation, their restraint vanishes and passion takes control. (Forever, Oct., 352 pp., $6.99)
