This book has something for everyone: hot sex scenes, a sexy hero with a tragic past, a smart and compassionate heroine, intrigue, danger and Regency London at its most decadent! Valentin and Sara are a steamy match made
in heaven, and as their sexual relationship deepens, so will the reader's appreciation of Pearce's storytelling
talents. Val and Sara's sexual antics are varied and believable, and their happy ending is sure to satisfy romance lovers.

Neither Valentin nor Sara expects their hasty marriage to actually evolve into a love match. Val suffers physical and emotional scars from his years as a sex slave in a Turkish brothel, and Sara is young, innocent and doesn't understand why her husband can't completely trust her.

But they must learn to rely on each other's strengths when Val's business, family and the couple's happiness are threatened by an unknown enemy. (Aphrodisia, Feb., 304 pp., $13.95)
