Author of a dozen national bestsellers, award-winner Susan Johnson beguiles once more with this breathtaking novel, a blend of scandalous adventure, sensual love, and more than just... A Touch of Sin.Beatrix Grosvenor couldn't have been caught in a more compromising position: locked in a Parisian apartment with the body of a murdered man. She could only hope that the charismatic stranger who found her would believe her story of abduction and assassination, and free her to return to her young son in England.But Pasha Duras was not about to let her escape so easily. The renowned libertine didn't believe Trixi's fanciful tale, but there was no denying the temptation of her beauty. He would accompany her home, on a sensual journey that would begin with the most tantalizing of seductions--and end with a dangerous discovery.Trixi's enemies were real. Her child was at their mercy... and Pasha's newly awakened heart may prove to be his undoing.From the Paperback edition.read more
OK read, but it just seemed that one thing after another kept happening to Trixi, then Pasha would get mad at her, then forgive her, etc., etc. It was frustrating and I just wished the story would end. Also, I understand that it had "been a long time" for Trixi since she had had sex, but it was pretty pathetic how she basically had an orgasm the minute Pasha touched her.read more

Followers of Johnson's 19th-century romance St. John series will welcome the story of Pasha Duras, the Eurasian son of Teo and Andre Duras from Taboo. Here, Pasha (who displays the usual romance-novel aversion to marriage) meets his lustful match in Lady Trixi Grosvenor when he rescues her and her small son, Chris, from greedy relatives who will stop at nothingincluding murderto prevent Chris from claiming his inheritance. A succession of kidnappings commence with Pasha saving the day. The novel is primarily one long sexual romp (Johnson's trademark); the plot, however, gets a bit heavy-handed toward the end, as the author drops readers into the Greek War of Independence, circa 1820. For the most part, however, this is lightweight fare, footnoted with choice, little-known facts, which, in the author's words, "are always the most interesting part of the book." (Mar.)
