WHAT A GENTLEMAN DESIRES
With this installment of the Redgrave series, Michaels holds the reader in her clutches and doesn’t let go. Always adept at weaving romance and suspense, this time Michaels has little of her signature humor. Instead, she allows the chilling aspects of a thriller, the intelligent and likable characters and a high degree of sensuality to carry the plot forward. Michaels doesn’t miss a beat, keeping her fans more than satisfied and anticipating the next in the series.
Valentine Redgrave courts disaster when he decides to infiltrate the ranks of a notorious hellfire club. Not only will he expose a band of traitors, but he’ll clear the family of its legacy of scandal. Valentine is well prepared for his mission, until he meets governess Daisy Marchant whom he suspects is a French spy. Since her sister’s disappearance, Daisy has hunted for her. She’ll let nothing stand in her way — certainly not the handsome, seductive Valentine. Still, he might aid her in her search for her sister and lead them both into the inner sanctum of the Society. But they must keep their desires in check and their eyes on the mission as they are caught in a web of betrayal, murder and scandal. (HQN, Oct., 380 pp., $7.99)
