Image of Sin and Scandal in England (Charmed and Dangerous)

In a tale set against the backdrop
of anarchy, political intrigue and
spying, Thomas, with her mature
writing and strong characters, spins
a web of danger that captivates.
She also writes a passionate and poignant love story.

Only one man from her past has haunted Bethany Munro: Sir Ian Rockwell. And fate seems to delight in bringing them together again. Ian doesn't seem pleased to see her and wonders what she's doing at the home of the head of a deadly anarchist movement. Unbeknownst to Bethany, Ian is a member of a select team of men serving the Crown's interest and is there on a mission. Bethany, meanwhile, is determined to uncover what happened to her one-time science teacher - who was last seen at Whitley Court. Her investigations turn up more than she bargained for.

Bethany was someone Ian tried to forget, but this beautiful woman is independent, intelligent and idealistic - and there is more than a sensual pull between them. They play a game of seduction, and Bethany finds that the love she once felt for Ian is still there. (AVON, Oct., 384 pp., $5.99)
