THE WICKED WAYS OF A TRUE HERO

Author(s): 

Known for her wry wit and snappy
repartee, Metzger delights readers
with another tale of the Royce family,
who have the unique ability to spot a
liar. As Metzger combines humor and pathos, she delivers a story you'll smile about for weeks.

Three years ago, Daniel Stamfield shattered Corisande Abbott's chance for happiness when he prevented her elopement and returned her to her ruthless father. He believed her father's lies about his wayward daughter and views her as nothing but trouble.

Daniel's in for more trouble when Corisande arrives in London for the season, accompanied by his mother and sister. The sparks fly, and they reach a truce, but when Daniel realizes Corisande isn't lying about what happened and begins helping her solve the mystery surrounding counterfeit bills, circumstances change. Daniel can no longer help her find a suitable husband -- because he wants her for his own. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Mar., 346 pp., $6.99)
