If He's Dangerous

Hannah Howell. Kensington/Zebra, $7.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-1-4201-1878-0

Fans will delight in Howell's third Wherlocke paranormal Regency (after 2010's If He's Wild) from the moment the psychically projected image of a very naked Sir Argus Wherlocke appears to Lorelei Sundun in her father's rose garden. Instead of screaming or fainting like a proper duke's daughter, Lorelei offers to help Argus escape from the unscrupulous government men who are trying to exploit his abilities. After they meet in the flesh, Lorelei is certain that Argus is her soul mate; Argus, scarred by memories of his parents' disastrous marriage, wants to hold himself aloof, but Lorelei resists all his efforts to put her off or control her mind, and soon wins him over with her beauty and strength of character. Gentle but passionate love scenes and endearing descriptions of close-knit, quirky families will have readers beaming from the first page to the last. (June)
