Image of To Tempt a Saint (Berkley Sensation)

Powerful emotions, taut mysteries, dark secrets and deep sensuality draw readers into Moore's unforgettable story. Like Lorraine Heath, Moore draws on the Dickensian aspects of London to enhance a story already filled with realistic characters and pulse-pounding adventure. Moore is a talent to remember.

Courtesan Sophie Rhys-Jones has three "living sins" to attest to her ability to attract wealthy, titled protectors. When her youngest, Kit, is kidnapped while under the care of his brother Xander, she refuses to believe that Kit is dead and charges Xander and his brother Will to find Kit -- even if they must enter London's dark underbelly.

Cleo Spencer is an heiress who must fight her guardian to get her money, while Xander needs a wife with money. An accidental meeting has them joining forces in a marriage that's supposed to be convenient yet is so much more. Xander plans to scour the darkest corners of London's stews while he and Will search for Kit. He has no idea that intelligent, fearless Cleo will be part of his plans or that their love and her faith in him can bring them everything they desire. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jan., 350 pp., $7.99)
