Lady Isobel Maitland is tired of always following the rules set by her deceased husband’s family, but she dare not rebel for fear of losing her child. Then a masked ball presents the opportunity to take a chance to seize a night of bliss with the handsome and notorious Marquess of Blackwood. When Phineas’ lover flees, he is determined to uncover her identity. Used to working for the government, he’s sure he can find a mere woman. Could his passionate partner be the prim and proper widow Maitland? He must hurry, because he’s on a mission that may draw Isobel and her child into grave danger. (AVON, Apr., 384 pp., $7.99)
