Image of Unlacing Lady Thea (Harlequin Historical)

Allen’s devoted following will relish this take on “the debutante must marry,” as she pairs an unorthodox Lady Thea with the dynamic Lord Rhys. Sparks and wit fly throughout this toe-curling adventure, and despite the drawn out HEA, the author’s talent keeps readers turning the pages.

Lady Thea Curtiss will do whatever it takes to get out of being imprisoned by marriage. Her plan? Hijack her secret love’s trip through Europe and hope to land in Venice with her godmother without falling in love with him again. Thea was Rhys’ only friend when he was jilted years before. But time changes everything, and Thea has gone from hellraiser to beauty. After his grand tour, Rhys must settle down and pick a proper wife. The journey with Thea drags him into a new world of desire, trust and hope. Still, their newfound passion may not be enough when Rhys’ ex-lover reappears. (HARLEQUIN, Apr., 300 pp., $6.50)
