The Bride Wore Scarlet

Liz Carlyle. Avon, $7.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-06-196576-0
Carlyle continues the Fraternitas paranormal Victorian trilogy (after One Touch of Scandal) with sizzling passion and romance. Anaïs de Rohan has spent much of her life training, hoping to join the male-only Fraternitas. The earl of Bessett reluctantly allows her to accompany him on a mission to Brussels where they must pose as husband and wife in order to rescue a young child who has the ability to see into the future. The pretense leads to real attraction that Bessett and Anaïs find impossible to ignore, and they also connect on a much deeper level. Bessett admires Anaïs's skill with a sword as well as her quick wit and intelligence, and Anaïs admires Bessett's compassion and caring despite his occasional dictatorial moments. Readers will eagerly look forward to the stunning conclusion as well as the next installment in this well-crafted series. (Aug.)
