I Adored a Lord

Katharine Ashe. Avon, $5.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-06-222983-0

Readers are in for a riotous good time in this Regency-set game of Clue from Ashe (How to Marry a Highlander). Ravenna Caulfield is battling grief over the death of her beloved pet. The last thing she wants is to attend a bride-hunting party for a spoiled prince, but an unexpected encounter lands her in the arms of handsome Lord Vitor Courtenay, making the party considerably more lively. When a guest is found murdered, Ravenna and Vitor set out to investigate the remaining party guests, who are conveniently trapped in the house. Even though Ravenna’s and Vitor’s banter sparkles with wit and flirtation, their romance takes second billing to the delicious whodunit. The supporting characters are magnetic, particularly the salacious Lady Iona. A strong plot and exceptional dialogue will appeal to mystery fans as well as romance readers. [em](Aug.) [/em]
