My selection for this week is:
A Dangerous Liaison with Detective Lewis by Jillian Stone
Publication Date:August 28th 2012
What I think:
Summary from Goodreads:
From the author of the well-reviewed An Affair with Mr. Kennedy comes a thrilling new romance in the Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series, featuring Rafe Lewis and his jilted former fiancée, Fanny, as they embark on a high-speed race against the clock to evade a madman hell-bent on murdering industrialists and inventors.
Special Inspector Rafael Lewis hasn’t seen the woman he jilted on the night of their engagement ball in five years. Fanny Greyville-Nugent has spent five years working side-by-side with her recently deceased father, a captain of industry in the steam revolution. When Detective Lewis and the Scotland Yard suspect that the late Mr. Greyville-Nugent was targeted for murder by an anarchist group determined to stop the proliferation of machines in the workforce, Lewis must guard his former fiancée with his life—much to her chagrin.
As Rafe and Fanny set out across the countryside from Edinburgh to London, danger lurks around every corner, but the biggest danger might turn out to be the embers of their previously smothered attraction smoldering to life.
What I think:
I absolutely loved the first book in this series. It was so fresh and full of adventure and mystery that I couldn't possibly put it down. So, naturally A Dangerous Liaison with Detective Lewis is on my auto buy list. I just can't wait to read a new story by the very talented Jillian Stone!
