In a moment of embarrassing impropriety, walking in on a stark naked man emerging from his bath, will forever shape and twist one womanís life. Awakening dormant and untapped desires not yet exploredÖ

A sixteen-year-old Antonia Maitland will never forget the day she walked in on Trey Deverill in his entire glorious splendor. That bathroom plunder will be permanently etched in her mind. Deverill is a visiting business acquaintance of Antoniaís father, Samuel Maitland. After dinner they encounter each other again, which leads to Deverill enlightening Antonia with her first kiss.

Four years later, Antonia is betrothed to James Heward and missing her dearly departed father. Just before their official betrothal is to be announced, Deverill steps back into Antoniaís life. Deverill returns to England after getting word that the circumstances surrounding Samuel Maitland death may not have been heart failure. Lord Hewardís whispered involvement and betrothal to Antonia, has Deverillís suspicions on high alert. When Deverill comes face to face with Antonia, she is no longer a gangly young girl, but a ripe and luscious siren. Their attraction to one another is immediate and intense.

Wicked Fantasy follows in the footsteps of Master of Temptation and Lord of Seduction (Paradise series). Wicked Fantasy could be read as a stand-alone, but you will be running out the door to get the rest of this sensual series!

When it comes to creating drama, majesty and passionate gratification, Ms. Jordan does not disappoint! Ms. Jordan penned another scorching historical that titillates and stimulates the senses. Drawing the reader in by mastering of a storyline woven articulately and executed faultlessly! The dialogue between the characters is the crowning touch, with its strong sensuous contents. Ms. Jordan is one of the best in her field of historical romance and this should be an award winning year for her!

The flame-haired beauty mesmerizes Deverill. Antoniaís alluring zest for life and unconventional attitude captivates and pulls at Deverillís unrequited soul. Antonia is fantasizing and dreaming about the carnal devil incessantly. Deverillís sexual allure and commanding presence, is exhilarating to Antonia.

With Heward dangerously connected to Antonia, Deverill can not fail her, having the demons from his past mistakes still haunting close. Yet, he can not afford nor desires anything remotely permanent. Deverillís commitments lie with the Guardian and his quest to help mankind. Sometimes what one thinks they crave, does not the outcome make.

If you are a fan of Ms. Jordanís or looking for a sexually intoxicating historical filled with action and adventure then hurry to get your copy of Wicked Fantasy by Nicole Jordan today! Itís a must read historical for 2005!
