Image of Secrets of Sin

Set in the Caribbean in 1745, this story is hot from page one, and the temperature just keeps rising. The characters are well wrought, and a clever subplot
sets up the sequel.

Renier wants to divorce the wife he hasn't seen in four years. He travels to Bougainvilla, where he finds not only a thriving plantation but also an irate wife who also wants a divorce. Once he witnesses her charms and competence, however, Renier wavers on his offer of divorce. He suggests a proposition: Be at his command for three days, after which time he'll sail away.

Emiline can survive any challenge he throws down, sexual or otherwise. A reconciliation looks likely, but when Renier's best friend arrives, his plans go into a tailspin. (APHRODISIA, Feb., 320 pp., $14.00)
