In her latest sizzling Regency historical, New York Times best-selling author Nicole Jordan captivates with her breathtaking sensuality and unforgettable romance. When a bold adventurer abducts an heiress for her own protection, their ensuing battle of wills ignites in explosive passion and unexpected love. Book 3 of Nicole's fabulous PARADISE series.
HE IS HER MOST WICKED FANTASY... AND NO PROPER SUITOR FOR A LADY.
Since the night Trey Deverill's stunning kiss melted her senses, Antonia Maitland has harbored a fascination for the infamous adventurer. But Deverill is nothing she needs in a husband, and when he abducts her -- for her own protection -- and then shockingly proposes marriage, a battle of wills ensues that proves dangerously irresistible.
Antonia's charming wit and vibrant beauty make her England's most sought-after heiress. Yet it's her fiery spirit and awakening sensuality that stir a need in Deverill so fierce he would challenge the devil himself to possess her.
From the glittering ballrooms of London to the splendor of the Cornish coast, Deverill sweeps Antonia into unforgettable passion. But a treacherous plot threatens their lives and their chance for the grandest adventure of all: true love.
Romance readers who believe "heavy on sensuality" equals "light on character" would do well to pick up the latest Regency by Jordan (Lord of Seduction), who deftly discloses her hero and heroine's depths even as they de-clothe each other. Again featuring the adventures of the Guardians of the Sword, a secret society pledged to protect the weak and fight tyranny, Jordan spotlights Trey Deverill, a handsome, virile, pirate-battling ship captain who returns to London to safeguard beautiful heiress Antonia Maitland. Antonia's father died mysteriously, and Deverill suspects her well-born fianc is involved. When Antonia rejects Deverill's warnings and her fianc sets Deverill up for murder, the captain has no choice but to abduct Antonia to secure her safety. In the process, Deverill discovers an unexpected danger: losing his heart to the spirited girl. Seduction, masked balls, houses of ill-repute and the stirrings of first love swirl into an intoxicating mix. Once more Jordan proves that she well deserves her reputation for delivering both steamy scenes and an emotional punch. Agent, Karen Solem at Spenser Hill Associates. (Aug.)
