With her gift for storytelling, Thomas mixes a slightly complex plot with a strong, dangerous hero and an innocent, courageous heroine. She also fills the pages with intrigue, passion, emotional intensity, duplicity and adventure in this page-turning romance.

American steel heiress Cassandra Sheridan is attending her betrothal ball. But a very important person is missing -- her betrothed, Devlyn St. Clair, Earl of Hamstead, a man she has yet to meet. Cassie has no idea she's marrying a man of many disguises, a British spy who is out for revenge against his nemesis, Nicholas Ivanov, and his Russian consortium.

In love with him and fearful for his life, Cassie doesn't understand Devlyn or his dangerous life, which he's about to give up for Cassie. He's tired of the cat-and-mouse game with Ivanov, and despite his honor and duty to the Crown, his main object is to protect those he loves. (Avon, Jan., 384 pp., $5.99)
