Page (Black Silk) delivers a winner with this sensuous and captivating erotic Regency romance. Prim and proper widow Jane, Lady Sherringham, is fretting over her best friend, Delphina, Lady Treyworth, who has been missing for weeks. Jane is convinced that a secret upper-class sex club, where Lord Treyworth regularly subjected Del to various indignities, is the key to her disappearance. Boldly infiltrating the club, Jane inadvertently reunites with Del’s womanizing brother, Lord Wickham, and they agree to pose as a lustful couple while looking for Del. As they discover an entirely unexpected mutual passion, they also uncover horrifying, illicit activities both within and beyond the club, some closer to home than either could have ever expected. This romantic whodunit is sizzling with chemistry and will keep readers hungrily turning pages. (Mar.)
