SHE TEMPTS THE DUKE
Book one in the Lords of Pembrook trilogy is a powerful story of retribution and salvation. Heath’s talent for creating memorable characters comes to the forefront within a classic plotline that pits good against evil.
As boys Sebastian Easton and his brothers escaped their ruthless uncle’s plans for murder with the help of their friend Lady Mary Wynne-Jones. Now scarred and embittered, Sebastian returns from battle to claim his rightful place as the Duke of Keswick. He has not forgotten how Mary risked her reputation to save the brothers, but he isn’t the boy she knew. Hard and vengeful he appears to have forgotten the kiss they shared and Mary’s vow to meet him in the abbey ruins upon his return. Though betrothed, Mary cannot prevent herself from rebuilding her friendship with Sebastian and the flames of desire from igniting. Sebastian fears his growing love for Mary will stop him from exacting his revenge, yet that love could be his only salvation. (AVON, Feb., 384 pp., $7.99)
