The second Cavensham Heiresses Regency (after The Bad Luck Bride) has a heady mix of action, wit, and sexual tension. After headstrong Lady Emma Cavensham’s friend Lena is murdered, Emma believes Lena’s abusive husband, Aulton, did it. When she learns that Aulton plans to remarry, Emma is determined to bring him to justice before another innocent woman falls prey to him. The wealthy and reclusive Nicholas St. Mauer, Earl of Somerton, has one ambition: to become more successful than the father who neglected, humiliated, and disowned him as a lad. Nick wishes to avoid marriage, but his attempts to protect Emma during her reckless investigation land them in a compromising position and then in front of the nearest vicar. The lovers share a history and are accepted by Emma’s family, but that foundation begins to crumble under Nick’s inability to forgive and Emma’s guilt over Lena’s death. When Aulton discovers Emma’s plan, he strikes back at her; Nick’s demand that she let go of her quest puts even more strain on the marriage. Readers will eagerly turn the pages to see how this intense story concludes. Agent: Pamela Ahearn, Ahearn Agency. (Nov.)
