Determined to rectify a disastrous mistake caused by one of his misdirected arrows, Eros, god of love, sets about trying to make the Marquess of Blytheland fall in love with intelligent, outspoken, but quite naive Cassandra Hathaway. A mythical cupid and a delightful younger sister (who deserves a story of her own) do their best to keep a wounded but resilient hero and a charmingly blunt heroine on the convoluted path to true love. This light Regency is peppered with witty dialog and humorous repartee. Harbaugh (The Reluctant Cavalier, Signet, 1996) lives in Auburn, Washington.

Graham, a consistent best-selling author who writes under either the name Graham (for historicals) or Pozzessere (for contemporaries), makes her hardcover debut. This new book is a contemporary holiday story with historical embellishments that will satisfy her old fans and appeal to new ones. John and Julie Radcliffe and their three children, a modern Miami family, are being torn apart by changing goals and old hurts. An isolated family vacation at a Virginia country inn at Christmas will either remake the family or shatter it forever. Enter the Wainscott family, the caretakers of the inn the Radcliffes choose. A peculiar family, the Wainscotts dress in Civil War^-era costumes and are rarely seen together. Each of the Wainscotts hints at a tragic loss and encourages the Radcliffes to rebuild their family. In puzzling out the secrets of the Wainscott family, the Radcliffes rediscover each other and find that family is worth fighting for. Highly recommended for all public libraries. Melanie Duncan
