Genre: Historical Romance
Alberta Brown buries the scandal of her husband's death in America and sets out for England to right the wrong her husband committed. She must return the signet ring she found among his cache of ill-gotten goods.
Accidents aboard the ship lead Allie to wonder if someone wants her dead. She's met in London by Lord Robert Jamison who will escort her to a friend's house in the country.
Unlike many heroes, Lord Robert is very interested in marriage. When he meets Allie, he is fascinated by her beauty. But it appears she is in danger; he steps in as her hero, rescuing her when they are abducted. Before Robert can convince the stubborn widow to give love a second chance, they must unmask their assailant and see that the ring is returned to its rightful owner.
Danger stalks Allie and Robert in this utterly delightful and charming romance, made fresh by the twist of an eager-to-wed hero and a reluctant heroine. You are sure to enjoy this charming confection of a read. SENSUAL (Nov., 400 pp., $6.99)
