It is believed that the thief known as Wrexhall's Wraith has stolen a jewel box containing a damaging letter that has to do with a murder, and the king. It is Jack Seward's job to apprehend the thief and recover the letter before it falls into the wrong hands. The danger and thrill of stealing intoxicates the thief, yet there is a purpose behind this dangerous madness. Though well trained and an expert, the thief is caught unaware when the Whitehall Hound makes his presence known. The thief thinks it is rather extreme that the Hound was set on Wrexhal's Wraith just because some aristocrat's jewels and treasures are being stolen. The only thing the Wraith has going is the element of surprise - the thief is a 'she.' Everyone knows Jack by his reputation as Whitehall's Hound; he is feared and respected. And they know the circumstances of his low birth and deprived childhood, yet he is tolerated by the ton as he circulates in their social circle looking for the thief. He has narrowed the suspects down to four women and when he crosses paths with one woman in particular, he feels the same sexual excitement that he felt when he surprised the thief and she kissed him. Jack is told to get the letter and kill the thief, but his suspicion about her identity will not allow him to carry out his orders because he is drawn to her like a moth to a flame. And later, when he confronts her, she tells him there was no letter in the box. He believes her, but knowing she will be killed regardless, he marries her to protect her. Unless or until the letter is found, her life is in danger. And it takes the old king himself, George III, to put an end to this madness. Though there is no secret as to the thief's identity, the cat and mouse games played are titillating and delicious. The missing letter, the question of it's contents, who has it and the hunt for it make this book quite a thriller. An intoxicating and titillating romance! Connie Brockway takes you high up to the rooftops and deep into the emotions of her wonderful characters! Ms. Brockway writes with passion about passion so effectively, you feel it too! A skillful and talented author, Ms. Brockway and All Through The Night are magnificent! The sexual tension is so taut that you as the reader along with the characters beg for it's end. The raw power and shear strength of the hero is perfectly balanced with the demur and unassuming heroine, and both have keen intelligence as one tries to outsmart the other in an exciting game of cat and mouse. This book is incredible - satisfying - a definite winner and I loved it!Gloria Miller -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved
