Johnson is legendary for her fiercely sensual and well-researched romances, and she hits the mark with her latest. Combining provocative, titillating love scenes with marvelous characters and a well-drawn historical backdrop, she delivers another thought-provoking, smart, super-sexy dramatic love story that will be many a reader’s “keeper.”

Everyone who’s anyone is aware of Alec Munro, Earl of Danleigh’s unusually “free” marriage, his love for his stepson and his legendary prowess in bed. Alec is intrigued with the vibrant red-haired Scots beauty, Zelda Mackenzie. Just returned from exploring the Brazilian rainforest, Zelda is perfectly happy the way she is and cares nothing for rumors about herself or anyone. At first she is uninterested in a dalliance with rogues. But as Alec pursues her, Zelda wonders, what is the harm in entering into a no-strings-attached relationship with Alec? Neither expects their lust to turn to something much deeper. As Zelda falls under Alec’s dangerous spell and he realizes he is falling in love as well, they face a greater challenge from his ruthless wife and the dark secrets of Alec’s past.
