Lady Virginia Burke needs former agent Lord Nick Forrester to complete a mission. When his wild ways got him thrown into a Scottish prison, Nick wasn’t sure he’d ever see the light of day, but Virginia manages to get him out. Nick isn’t about to let a woman control his life, but one wrong move and she’ll send him back to his dungeon. He has to keep his desire in check and she must be careful not to fall under the scoundrel’s spell. But as they hunt for a missing young woman abducted by a London crime lord, the danger builds along with their desire. (AVON, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)
