Smith returns to her roots
in pure historical romance with an awe-inspiring, passionate love story showcasing her talent for creating not only three-dimensional characters but also an emotional landscape that touches readers on many levels and, in the end, provides a deep sigh of utter contentment.

Greydon Kane, the Duke of Ryeton, arrives at Saint's Row looking for pleasure. In truth he's seeking a woman who resembles the one he loves but cannot have. Rose is at the glittering masked ball seeking the man she desires. She'll pose as a wanton to get Grey into her arms. That's easy, but getting him to admit he loves her is another problem.

Grey is shocked at his reaction to the mysterious woman. But once he discovers her true identity, Rose's plan goes awry. How can she prove to Grey that she, not some fragile girl, is the one for him? It's a challenge; making him give up his pride for love might be impossible. (AVON, Oct., 380 pp., $6.99)
