A SECRET IN HER KISS
Debut author Randol has taken the Regency romance to a new level in an exciting, different setting that will have readers cheering. There’s adventure, sexual tension and thrills as a daring duo traverses the alleys and palaces of the Ottoman Empire. Randol demonstrates she has what it takes to be a star.
Raised in the East, naturalist Mari Sinclair has been working as a spy for the British and helping the Greeks in their fight for independence. After an attempt on her life she’s set to retire. But the British need information only she can obtain and send Major Bennett Prestwood to “help” her complete a mission. The handsome major is a strict, unyielding military man. He would like to be done with his military career, but first he must see that Mari completes her mission. As danger mounts, Mari and Bennett discover an unexpected passion as well as secrets that could mean death. Bennett will have to find a way to keep her safe, even if it means breaking his code — for Mari has become more important than rules and regulations. (AVON, Feb., 384 pp., $7.99)
