Overview

Like a cat, a beautiful figure prowls London's shadowed roofs, stealing into the boudoirs of the rich and powerful in search of an ancient jewel-encrusted pillow book. Only with this rare treasure can Chessy Cameron barter for her father's life.

But neither Chessy's martial arts nor her stubborn heart can protect her from the one man she can never forget -- the polished scoundrel who destroyed her hopes and then vanished without a trace.

Lord Anthony Moreland seeks the pillow book as well, under urgent government orders to smooth diplomatic relations between England and the Chinese emperor. But five men have already died in search of the erotic manual. And now fiery, stubborn Chessy stands in his way, a temptress the earl cannot resist.

Through London's hectic social season to the sunny seclusion of a beautiful country manor, the two stubborn lovers fight the call of fate until they yield to reckless passion, reinventing the arts of love even as they track the ancient book. And all the while, somewhere in the shadows, an evil master lies in wait.

Christina Skye is the New York Times bestselling author of 32 books. She is a pushover for Harris tweed, Scottish cashmere, Chinese dumplings, French macarons and dark chocolate.

Not necessarily in that order.

After receiving her doctorate in classical Chinese literature, Christina worked as a writer, translator and consultant to travel companies, importers, museums and magazines, including the National Geographic Society, the Asia Society and the American Museum of Natural History. In 1990 she sold her first novel. Since then she has written four different series for five different publishers. She has appeared on ABC Worldwide News, Travel News Network, the Arthur Frommer Show, Geraldo, Voice of America, Looking East, and Good Morning, Arizona.
She generally has her knitting right beside her while she writes.

"Colors and textures running through my fingers help me concentrate on the flow of a book and the mystery of characters coming alive before my eyes. Knitting pulls me to a quiet place where a story can unfold at its deepest level."

    TOO MANY SUBPLOTS! Wanted a light romance and got a convoluted

    TOO MANY SUBPLOTS! Wanted a light romance and got a convoluted tale that should have ended 200 pages earlier. The main threat to the heroine was resolved in a blink even though it was seemingly insurmountable for what seemed 1 million pages.
