THE WICKED LOVER
Master storyteller Ross delivers a spellbinding double dose of intrigue and passion in this tale of masquerades and suspense.
Robert "Dove" Dovenby returns to his London townhouse to find an intruder snooping in his wardrobe. George White claims he needs Dove's cravat to win a wager, but Dove thinks there's more to this than a bet. "George" is really Sylvie Georgiana, Countess of Montevrain, a secret agent assigned to find evidence that Dove is a traitor. As Sylvie gets closer to the truth she finds herself dangerously close to falling in love with her prey. To Dove she is a temptation he cannot resist.
Watching the charade play out, getting entangled in games of espionage and discovering long-hidden secrets turn Ross' tale into a fast-paced, sensual story brimming over with unforgettable moments and memorable characters. Ross reaches new heights in an exquisitely romantic, utterly captivating romance that touches the heart. SENSUAL (Feb., 400 pp., $13.00)
