Cornick draws the reader into
a tale about a group of female
Robin Hoods. Murder, guilt
and secrets come together in
a compassionate and touching love story.
With the Home Secretary's orders still ringing in his ears, Major Nick Falconer is off to Yorkshire to find the murderer of his despicable cousin and to bring down the notorious band known as the Glory Girls.
The beautiful and respectable widow Mari Osborne intrigues him. Nick is positive that they've met before -- in London on the night his cousin was killed. While assuring him that they have never met, Mari notices an
attraction to Nick, who is determined
to uncover the real Mari, for he feels the same sensual pull between them. What will the outcome be if this law-abiding man uncovers her past life and her involvement with the Glory Girls? (HQN, Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
