Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mysteriously summoned to Paradise, a decadent pleasure-centered country resort that takes its inspiration from Coleridge's poem "Kubla Khan," a family outcast and an actress escaping her scandalous past become key players in a daring plan to root out a vile enterprise that preys on the helpless. Featuring a quintessential alpha male hero and a heroine to match, Kerstan's well-conceived, flawlessly executed tale examines the darker side of men's desires and metes out justice in no uncertain terms. Also adding to its appeal are flashes of humor and beautifully handled sexual tension. Like the titles in Kerstan's "Big Cat" trilogy (Heart of the Tiger, The Golden Leopard, The Silver Lion), this is not a romance to be lightly skimmed but to be savored. Readers are sure to be waiting for the next installment in this new trilogy built around the shadowy Black Phoenix organization. RITA Award-winning Kerstan lives in Southern California.

    A winner

    Lord Jarrett Dering receives a letter demanding he account for his sins and meet at a chop house. He ignores the invitation, but the author visits Jarrett asking him to go to the exclusive estate Paradise at the bequest of the mysterious Black Phoenix. Though he would prefer to say no, Jarrett agrees to visit this renowned den of iniquity...................... In Paradise, actress Gaetana makes Jarrett look silly as well as sexually frustrating him in front of a packed house. Later she wears a mask when she meets him in private to inform him she is his partner. Jarrett tells her he knows from her smell that she is Gaetana, but calls her Kate from the Taming of the Shrew. As they work undercover (figuratively and literally) together to expose Carrington and he makes public displays of his sexual power over her, they fall in love. However, Carrington and his minion have killed before and will do again if they strip bare either identity................... The strong lead characters must put on a sexual pretense in public, but fall in love in private. Thus, readers will take delight with this fine amateur sleuth investigation in which the hero fakes abuse of the heroine to gain access to the inner secrets of Paradise. Though the last forty or so pages occur after the good guys win seemingly too easily and come across as two padded unnecessary subplots, fans will appreciate Lynn Kerstan¿s erotic Regency romance and seek out her animal tales (see THE GOLDEN LEOPARD; HEART OF THE TIGER, and THE SILVER LION)......................... Harriet Klausner
