A WICKED GENTLEMAN
Genre: Historical Romance
Consummate storyteller Feather entices with a mystery tinged with humor that will enchant readers who desire a sprightly story filled with marvelous characters -- and just enough suspense to keep the midnight oil burning.
Under the thumb of her family, Lady Cordelia (Nell) Dagenham seizes
Bonham, a cryptographer for the Crown, suspects that a code-breaking device has been hidden in the house, and he will do anything to keep it from French spies. He's willing to use his charm on the sharp-tongued widow, drawing her into the whirl of London society. It's soon obvious that Nell and Harry share a powerful attraction, but their growing passion pales when Nell's son is kidnapped and she must decide if she can trust Harry. Lives become entangled, danger stalks the house and Nell and Harry discover that trust is as important to a relationship as passion. (Pocket Star, Mar., 465 pp., $7.99)
