This is one of my favorite romance novels. Cate Brandt is one of the only authors in this genre who truly realizes that if you're going to have a 15-page sex scene, you have to balance that with wit, humor and adventure.
Alison trembled as she faced her handsome captive. In order to stop her brother from duelling witht he infamous Marquis of Chatham, she found the danger exhilarating, his fury, amusing...until she stumbled close enough to see the violent passion in his dark eyes, and feel the raging strength of of his vengeful embrace. Suddenly it seemed as though he held her prisoner--and she never wanted to escape him!
The Marquis eyed his captor with cool fascination. The little tart thought she was safely disguised by those hideous breeches, but nothing could hide her womanly curves. And nothing would stop him from taking his revenge! He could picture every last, sweet detail...her sea-green eyes would grow wide with fear, then languid with desire; she would struggle against him, then melt in his arms; she would moan in protest, and then sigh her surrender as he bound her in love's SILKEN CHAINS.
