Ladies, loosen your corsets and take a deep breath, because Jordan's newest (after Master of Temptation) is another sensual Regency starring an alpha male and the spirited woman who captures his heart. Viscount Christopher Thorne, a member of the secret society Guardians of the Sword, sworn to uphold honor and defeat tyranny, has his world shattered by the killing of his best friend and fellow Guardian, Nathaniel. A year later, on the Mediterranean isle of Cyrene, Nathaniel's beautiful cousin Diana gives Thorne a letter written by Nathaniel shortly before his death that makes Thorne realize that his friend was murdered and all the Guardians are vulnerable. To keep his dynasty-obsessed father off his back while he returns to London to investigate, Thorne proposes a sham betrothal to Dianawhich he soon wants to make real. Wary of Thorne's rakehell past, Diana refuses to believe he loves her, and it's only during the gripping climax that Diana admits that she can't live without him. Though the first half is light on plot and heavy on sensual encounters, the pace of the second half soon picks up, plunging Thorne and Diana into the mystery of Nathaniel's death. The tame jacket art gives no clue to the story's high sex content, but those familiar with Jordan's work won't be fooled.

From the glitter of Regency London to a sun-kissed Mediterranean paradise, Nicole Jordan captivates with her breathtaking sensuality and unforgettable romance.

No woman could tame him . . . until he met his match.

With his reckless charm and lust for danger, Viscount Thorne is one of Englands most elusive bachelorsand member of a secret league of protectors known as the Guardians. To thwart his fathers matchmaking schemes, Thorne asks an alluring artist to pose as his betrothed.

Burned once by desire, Diana Sheridan swears off love. But to secure her cousins place in society, she agrees to Thornes charade. Then scandal brews, and Thorne insists on going through with the marriage. When Diana refuses, wary of his smoldering passion, the rakish lord wages a dazzling campaign of seduction.

Meanwhile, danger threatens their very lives. Yet Thorne realizes the greater danger is to his heart. For he never expected to get caught in a matrimonial snare of his own makingor imagined their pretense of a love match would become so tantalizingly real.

2nd book in Paradise Series ... loved Thorne in the first book so was excited for him as the hero in this book. Bit's of the "mystery" aspect were a bit predictable but I enjoyed having Yates brought back in this book. The character of Amy will get on your nerves a bit, but she is suppose to. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
