TO TAME A DANGEROUS LORD
Jordan continues her Courtship Wars series with this sexually charged romance. She pairs an ex-spymaster with a courageous female along with secrets, misunderstandings and danger to create a nicely crafted, absorbing tale.
With his days working with British Intelligence over, Rayne Kenyon, Earl of Haviland, is a bit bored, until fate brings Madeline Ellis into his life. Outspoken and independent, she is a challenge to him. He decides she might be what he's looking for: She'll give him an heir in a marriage of convenience with none of the heartache of love and betrayal.
Madeline declines his offer; she wants a marriage filled with love. But soon she agrees. Then misunderstandings and circumstances beyond their control threaten their marriage and their lives. Will it also threaten Rayne's realization that Madeline is the love of his life? (BALLANTINE, Feb., 443 pp., $7.99)
