A scandalous entanglement traps a woman of virtue in an unforgettable Regency romance from the bestselling author praised as “a major find” (Mary Balogh). When word reaches Deirdre Fenton that her brother is pursuing the notorious actress Mrs. Dewinters, she immediately sets about extricating her incorrigible sibling from his latest folly. But her brother has gone too far this time for his—or Deirdre’s—own good. For Mrs. Dewinters is under the powerful protection of a war hero, the Earl of Rathbourne . . . the very man Deirdre had summarily rejected years before. And the Earl is not a man to forgive an insult—or forget a lady as passionate as Deirdre Fenton . . . If Rathbourne has learned one thing during his years fighting on the Peninsula, it is to get what he wants by means fair or foul. Now he has Deirdre right where he wants her: at his mercy. “A major, major talent, Ms. Thornton takes her rightful place as a genre superstar.” —RT Book Reviews

The French Revolution comes to vivid life as the USA Today–bestselling author’s Devereux Trilogy continues. “A joy to read!” (RT Book Reviews). As the newly appointed commissioner, Philippe Duhet has the power of life and death over the local French aristocracy. In return for her family’s safe passage out of the country, the breathtakingly lovely Claire Devereux agrees to be his mistress. She is to live in his luxurious quarters, to be seen with him about town, and to accommodate his desires whenever he wishes. Claire surrendered her body to Duhet, but swore he’d never break her spirit. What she didn’t know was that the real Duhet had been abducted, and his American twin brother, Adam Dillon, was installed in his place as a spy. And she was devastated to find that her body was not at all immune to the pleasures of Duhet’s caress, nor her heart to his intoxicating company. “I consider Elizabeth Thornton a major find.” —Mary Balogh, New York Times–bestselling author of the Westcott Novels

Maggie, a National Park Ranger, is back at the Castle – an ancient Native American pueblo carved into the face of a limestone cliff in Arizona.

Brett Collins, a scuba diver, is doing scientific studies in Montezuma Well, a dangerous cylindrical depression that houses a deep spring filled with strange creatures found nowhere else on Earth. Then there’s Dave, with whom she’s had a one-night stand, and her new boss Glen.
One of these men is a serial rapist, and Maggie is his next target.
