Overview

From the depths of an English forest to glittering ballrooms to the scaffold's dark shadow, ride the path of temptation with Kat Martin in Nothing But Velvet...

Lovely Velvet Moran has renounced all thoughts of love. To save her family from ruin, she will wed the hard-faced Duke of Carlyle. But instead of becoming a nobleman's bride, Velvet finds herself a notorious highwayman's prize-her resolve to escape his forest lair warring with the wicked heat sparked by his caresses.

Falsely branded a murderer, Jason Sinclair has secretly returned to clear his name and stop the wedding that would deny him his stolen dukedom. In an outlaw masquerade, he'll kidnap this sensuous minx and detain her as long as is necessary. But can he bridle the surge of passion that has captured his soul...and could imperil them both?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Against a backdrop of glittering Georgian England, an embittered hero seeking revenge kidnaps a feisty heroine. What more could a romance reader want? Deprived of a dukedom and sentenced to hang after his younger brother murders their father and frames him, Jason Sinclair escapes and then returns incognito to clear his name. Set on preventing his dissolute brother's marriage to heiress Velvet Moran, he kidnaps the strong-willed lady. Since she's actually broke, however, and had no idea that her fianc was a deadbeat, she's grateful for the intervention. Soon she and the reluctant Jason join forces and pursue clues that point to his innocence, but they are thwarted at every turn by the evil usurper After steaming up half the windows in England and escaping more perils than Pauline, this engaging couple finds redemption in the nick of time. The humor's never jokey, the heroine's nave but not a nitwit, in other words it's a boisterous carriage ride in which Martin (Bold Angel) shows herself to have a firm grasp on the reins. (July)
