Suspense, mystery, paranormal activity and love - always love - have been the cornerstone of the genre since the early 1970s. Now we have updated the covers to these classics - but not the words - and reissued these timeless reads to let you relive the thrill of discovering a world of romance all over again.

To escape the embrace of an elderly nobleman, lovely Betsy Chapman flees to Regency London and becomes part of a daring mission: to discover whether Napoleon still lives, and expose the handsome Frenchman who plots to rule France.

Kidnapped and held hostage, she knows the torment of imprisonment and forbidden passion, and the seductive lure of Venetian splendor. Until, in the dark underside of Paris, the fate of and Empire is joined with her own proud destiny.
