Rita Boucher's extraordinary talent delivers another spectacular Regency love story brimming with stunning originality and romantic sensibility.

If there's one thing Adam, Marquess of Brand, positively despises it is someone who claims to have psychic powers and all that rot. No measure is too extreme for the handsome lord in his zeal to expose the charlatans who prey upon the superstitions of the weak and vulnerable.

Miranda Wilton is everything he should scorn. The offspring of the Wodesby family, long rumored to be descended from the Merlin, the lovely lady abets her mother's fortune telling and converses with her cat. How can he possibly fall in love with this would-be witch?

Someone, however, is willing to go to great lengths to see him dead. And it is only by accepting the Wodesby powers that the skeptical lord will live to claim the lady of his heart.

A highly gifted dreamspinner, Ms. Boucher fashions a captivating enchantment that will ensnare every reader's heart. A fabulous treasure for your Regency bookshelf! (Jan., 224 pp., $5.50)
