The hugely talented D'Alessandro returns with another installment in the Mayhem in Mayfair series. Humorous, heartwarming, sensual and exciting, her story combines the allure of the vampire novel with the high jinks of a delightful heroine and a stalwart hero.

At her wits' end, in need of money and/or a wealthy husband, Lady Emily Stapleford writes a sensual novel with a female vampire heroine (à la the latest selection of her Ladies' Literary Society). Rejected by publishers, Emily decides to engender interest in her novel by posing as a vampire.

London buzzes with talk about appearances of the "mystery woman," making it possible for Emily to sell her novel. However, American businessman Logan Jennsen is suspicious of Emily's doings. Though he's plagued by unexplained accidents, Logan is distracted by Emily. Once caught in her charade, Logan plans to use it to his advantage. But falling in love is not part of the plan, and now both Logan and Emily are in danger of losing more than their hearts. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Apr., 380 pp., $7.99)
