TRAITOR'S KISS/LOVER'S KISS
Make room on your
keeper shelf for Blayney, who moves from short Regency romances and suspense to
full-length historicals with a duet reminiscent of Regency masters Putney, Balogh and Elizabeth Boyle. Her stories of the Pennistan family are multifaceted and filled with unforgettable characters, nonstop action and exciting plotlines. Her consummate storytelling completely involves readers.
When retired soldier and spy Michael Garrett rescues the near-naked Lady Olivia Pennistan from kidnappers, her brothers hire him as her guard. Michael has nothing to offer a woman of Olivia's social standing, but that doesn't stop her from wanting him, and when rumors of seduction begin, Olivia wants to make Michael hers with a Lover's Kiss. (Bantam, Nov., 720 pp., $6.99)
