Overview

"I want to know you, to understand anything at all about you, because you are the most maddening lady I have ever encountered."

He's the perfect gentleman...
After years hidden away from the mockery of the Ton, proud Andrew Clifton, Lord Amberstall, is finally ready to face Society again. But when his horse is injured on the road to London, Andrew finds himself literally thrown at the feet of the beautiful, infuriating, and undeniably eccentric Katie Moore.

...she's anything but a lady.
Katie always preferred the stables to society, so when she was badly injured in a riding accident, she was more than happy to retreat to the countryside and give up the marriage mart for good. She never expected an infuriatingly proper lord to come tumbling into her life-and she certainly never expected to find herself wondering what it would be like to rejoin the world at his side. They couldn't be more different, and soon Andrew and Katie find themselves at odds about everything but the growing passion between them...and a keen awareness of a threat that may end their unconventional romance before it has even begun.

Michels’s third and final Tricks of the Ton historical (after Desperately Seeking Suzanna) lures in Regency romance fans with a most unconventional female protagonist. Andrew Clifton, Lord Amberstall, falls from his injured horse, Shadow, and lands on the pottery wheel of Katie Moore, daughter to the Earl of Ormesby. He’s prepared to shoot Shadow and buy another horse, but Katie, whose own injured leg leads her to sympathize with the animal, insists that he must wait for Shadow to heal. As Andrew works on repairing the stables and helps Katie overcome her fear of horses, he begins to feel attracted to her and her high-spirited, untamed nature. But Katie has a secret that threatens their newfound connection. Michels’s storytelling is rich with wit and charm, providing this series finale with plenty of scintillating romance and simmering intrigue. (July)

Romance: Married to a mystery

A woman risks her heart and then her life in Firewall by DiAnn Mills. Genius software developer Taryn Young thinks she finally has everything: a great job, a man who loves her, a brand-new marriage. But disaster strikes before the honeymoon can begin when an airport bombing injures Taryn, and her husband disappears. At the hospital, it’s clear the authorities suspect Taryn might be involved in the death and destruction. FBI Special Agent Grayson Hall’s gut tells him the beautiful woman is truly bewildered by what’s come to pass, but that doesn’t stop him from investigating her and the man she married. Fingers are pointed in several directions, but as the truth comes to light, so does more danger for Taryn and Grayson. When a child is kidnapped, the two must work together to stop evil in its tracks. A skillful blend of suspense, romance and spirituality, this book’s intricate storyline will keep readers guessing.

COUNTDOWN TO LOVE
How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less by Elizabeth Michels pits an unusual earl’s daughter against a very proper lord. The dignified Andrew Clifton, Lord Amberstall, is thrown from his horse and lands at the estate of Katie Moore. When he wants to put his injured horse out of its misery, Katie insists on trying to heal the animal. Stymied by the stubborn miss, Andrew is forced to wait out the recovery. While doing so, he learns to appreciate the quirks of his hostess: her blunt manners, her affinity for wearing breeches and the fact that she lives alone in the gamekeeper’s cottage instead of in her stately home. As word of trouble at his own estate reaches him, Andrew reluctantly leaves the fiery beauty, only to confront a nefarious villain bent on taking his lands and life. Katie follows her heart and rushes to the nobleman’s aid, even though it appears she will be too late. This is a touching tale of two people learning to look below the surface.

TOP PICK IN ROMANCE
The importance of family and the emotional hazards of love are explored in Sarah Morgan’s Suddenly Last Summer. Dedicated surgeon Sean O’Neil puts plenty of distance between himself and his family’s mountain resort in Vermont. To him, it’s always felt like an albatross. But when a relative’s illness forces him back into the family fold, he begins to see the place and his past through different eyes. He can thank French chef Élise Philippe for that—and for the way she’s making it hard for him to sleep at night. Élise wants a no-strings relationship. Which sounds fine to Sean . . . until it doesn’t. Will he be able to convince wary Élise that they have more than just sexual chemistry? Will he find a way to reconcile his devotion to medicine and his responsibility to the O’Neils and their resort? Élise has her own troubled history that makes the resort her haven, but falling for Sean and then losing him might jeopardize the peace she finds among the mountains. In this engaging novel, the stakes aren’t life-or-death, but life-and-love, which readers will find just as entertaining.
