Spinning off from Wicked Surrender, Lee reintroduces Kit Frazier, who returns as a man to be reckoned with and a hero readers will adore. Lee lifts readers into her fast-paced tale by creating a cast of likable characters and a story readers can embrace, not only due to its romance and sensuality, but the modern-day issues Lee tackles.
After seven years of captivity on a pirate ship Kit escapes and returns to England with a thirst for revenge. His plan gets thrown off course when he meets Madeline Wilson, a woman who sees past his uncouth manners and wild ways to the man suffering from horrifying memories. Maddie must make a good match and being thrust together with Kit could embroil her in scandal, but she cannot help but give him the comfort he needs. Kit reluctantly accepts what Maddie has to offer. He wants to be worthy of her devotion and when she needs his help he is there, helping her to gain her independence from her lecherous uncle, and freeing him from relying on his family. But as another’s treachery draws them into danger they must risk everything for love. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Mar., 380 pp., $7.99)
