Overview

USA Today bestselling author Jo Goodman's sweeping new novel brings to life a tale of courage, desire, and dangerous secrets--as an intrepid beauty discovers that love and trust are two sides of the same coin. . .

Wyatt Grantham, Viscount Sheridan, is stunned to find three young boys at his door, demanding he right the wrongs of an incident that occurred earlier that evening when he thwarted a determined thief. When he discovers his wily pickpocket is a woman, now gravely injured, he takes his flame-haired attacker under his wing. Clearly, Sheridan's new "guest" is lady of quality. So how did she become a common street thief? He finds himself irresistibly drawn the to clever, cheeky Lily, and determined to unlock her mysteries. . .

The five years since she left the care of the French convent have been a nightmare for Lily. Her secrets are dangerous--as is the powerful man determined to find her. The handsome Viscount is clearly a gentleman with secrets of his own, but staying with him could mean the difference between life and death for Lily. With each passing day, her handsome host turns Lily's convalescence into an increasingly sensual escape. Now her greatest challenge may be imagining anything less than a future in his arms. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Goodman begins her latest Regency with a wordy description of a romantic tryst at a masquerade ball, a fair warning of the rambling and randy story to come. At the ball, a ravishing Boudicca, looking every bit the warrior queen, captures the eye of the bored host, Christopher Hollins, earl of Ferrin. A notorious rake, Ferrin can't believe his fortune when the mysterious Boudicca seduces him before vanishing. With a little snooping, Ferrin identifies the elusive siren as Cybelline Caldwell, a grieving young widow and mother, recently relocated to the Suffolk countryside. Absorbed in restoring a neglected estate and trying to forget her impetuous actions at the ball-her first break from secluded widowhood-Cybelline is alarmed to learn that Ferrin is residing nearby under an assumed name. When he rescues Cybelline from a blizzard, Ferrin seizes the opportunity to insinuate himself into her household. While trying to win her heart, Ferrin discovers that the wary young woman hides dangerous secrets, including the truth behind her husband's suicide and a sinister threat posed by a nameless stalker. Though a bit overwritten, Goodman knows how to turn up the heat; unfortunately, readers probably won't get much satisfaction from the contrived ending. (Aug.)

    Excellent & Worth the Read !!

    Again, Jo Goddman hits the mark !! This well-written tale of Cybelline, (you have to LOVE that name..)and Christopher, the Earl of Ferrin, is filled with wicked desire . You will enjoy the familiar feeling if you have read Ms.Goodman's previous book A Season to be Sinful, as some of the lovely interesting characters are again found in this writing. You will find the story well rounded and riveting from beginning to end.... Indulge & Be Delighted !!
