Intricately plotted, with highly inventive lead characters, Brockway's latest is an intense and complicated romance that makes good use of its historical setting, England in 1817. This spy-catches-thief story weaves together dark secondary characters, some shocking sexual frankness (a masturbation scene and some non-euphemistic language), and truly tormented lead characters who, in contrast to the dukes and ladies in most romances, are not to the manor born. Everything works in this cat-and-mouse tale-there is excitement, chemistry, obsession, and, best of all, a tortured romance that has an ending befitting its unusual story line. Readers new to Brockway will want to check out her earlier A Dangerous Man and As You Desire after reading this. (Oct.)
