A novel by

 
 
Library Journal
When Lady Meredith Barrington's best friend is killed while wearing Merry's shawl, Merry has no idea that she herself had been the intended victim. Now, eight years later, as the result of a wager gone awry, she finds herself in a marriage of convenience to the Marquess of Dardington, widower of her murdered friend, and the target of a murderer who is stalking the women of London in Jack-the-Ripper fashion. Sensual and rather gently paced, this Regency-set historical pairs a lively, outspoken heroine who knows her own mind with a conflicted hero determined to protect her and then gives them a crafty killer to deal with and a marriage to establish all under the critical, unforgiving eyes of the ton. Although more romance than mystery, this light story will appeal to the growing number of readers who enjoy their love stories laced with a dash of suspense. Basso has written several earlier historicals and lives in New Jersey. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
