Two for the price of one is what you get in Wildes' wicked, but touching, Regencies. Although no date is given for the time frame, the settings of both stories are reminiscent of that era. Readers will have a hard time choosing their favorite from these delightful and sizzling tales.

In "The Manuscript," Claire is left penniless after her father's death. Her search for a domestic job doesn't go well because no one wants to hire a woman whose looks could entice someone else's husband. When Claire is finally offered a position as a scientist's assistant, she leaps at the opportunity. And when handsome Justin offers to show her the sexual side of his nature, she leaps into his bed.

In "Midnight Without a Moon," Rakehell Trenton is in serious trouble. The beautiful Jessica, his next-door neighbor, is believed to be an English spy. His efforts to protect her end in a sensual encounter in his bedchamber and the ruination of her reputation. But no matter how many times he tells himself he only married her to keep her safe, he can't dispel the emotions attacking his heart. When Jessica is kidnapped, he knows for certain he can't live without the woman of his dreams. (Siren, Mar., 182 pp., $12.99)
