MONTHLY RECAP: September 2016

FAVORITE READ OF THE MONTH...

To Steal a Heart (Secrets and Spies, #1)
Forced to do the bidding of a corrupt government minister, Marianne de Bonnard agrees to plant incriminating evidence in the offices of France’s most notorious spymaster. Under cover of night, the tightrope-walking thief puts her skills to good use—until her aerial stunt is foiled when her target appears in the window and, with consummate poise, helps Marianne off the wire and into his lair. The tremors that run through her body are not just from fear; there’s an unwanted frisson of desire there, too. But is it because of her elegant, wickedly handsome host . . . or his proposition?

Nicolas Valette has had plans for his graceful trespasser since he witnessed her unique skills at the Cirque Olympique. Sinuous as a cat, Marianne is perfect for his next mission, but she refuses his generous offer for fear of disobeying her family’s tormenter. When their mutual enemy auctions off her virginity to the highest bidder, Nicolas leaps at the chance to purchase her cooperation. Keeping her will be like trying to tame a wild animal, but what’s life without a little risk? Besides, Nicolas and Marianne both want the same thing: revenge—and, perhaps, something else that’s equally delicious.

  2. oh man hun!!!! It looks like you had such a great month here. First off I haven't seen the cover to Breathless yet, but man its so pretty!! I love the green there. To Steal A Heart sounds wonderful, I love a good spy romance and I have never heard of this one, so I am adding it to my next to buy list!!! I totally trust you since we have the same interests in romance. And I think its great that Avon is going into M/M romance. I am curious to see what you think of that one. Hope October is a great month for you!!!
