For years James Blackwood has been a sought-after lover, and for just as long he has worked as an undercover operative for his government and the royal family of a small nation. When his friend Prince Rupert is assassinated James vows to reveal the traitorous killer and protect the king’s newly discovered daughter, Sofia Eastleigh.
Sofia believed her mother’s tales of her passionate affair with a prince and that perhaps they truly wed before she was born, but she’s an independent woman who chooses her life and her lovers. Her immediate attraction to James stuns her. Here is a man she might not tire of and that makes him dangerous. James utilizes all his prowess to seduce and protect her. But as the danger mounts desire explodes and exposing the traitor is not as dangerous as falling in love. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Mar., 380 pp., $7.99)
