SEDUCED AT MIDNIGHT
The women of the Ladies Literary Society are caught in one of their books
as a ghost story leads to romance. D'Alessandro's exciting mystery series not only charms readers, it speaks to modern-day women who, like their historical counterparts, long for rugged heroes and wild adventure that will keep them up all night.
When episodes of a ghostly nature straight out of the latest novel strike Mayfair, Lord Bradley hires Bow Street Runner Gideon Mayne to guard his daughter, Lady Julianne. Julianne has dreamed of finding love, and the man in her dreams is Gideon. Though she's resigned to having to marry a suitable man, Julianne uses their time together to her advantage.
Gideon refuses to fall under Julianne's spell. The pampered aristocrat is not for him. But as the investigation takes shape, Gideon discovers that Julianne is a strong-willed, feisty woman who fuels his intellect and his desire. He must keep her safe even if he has to bury his growing passion, but can he? (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jan., 352 pp., $7.99)
