The man whose angry gaze confronts her is none other than the handsome stranger who came to her aid in a dark French alleyway. The stranger with whom she'd shared a moment of reckless passion. And now, with a single word, he could destroy her one chance for security. Julian St. John, Lord Knighton, owes his friend too much to allow him to fall into the clutches of a craven fortune hunter. He knows all he needs to know of Grace Godwyn: that she's the orphaned and penniless daughter of a disgraced viscount; that her lips taste incomparably sweet. There is no way he is going to allow this marriage to take place. Yet the more time Julian and Grace are forced to spend in each other's company, the more irresistible their desire grows—and the more devastating the potential consequences.

This brilliant, faultless, impeccably constructed work will maintain its status as an outstanding research tool invaluable both to undergraduate students and to scholars of James. It is unquestionably worthy of `The Master, ' its subject. Choice Called a Shakespeare of the novel and America's only fully realized literary artist by Leon Edel, his prize-winning biographer, Henry James was also one of the most prolific American writers. His massive literary output included approximately 300 critical essays, 134 novels and stories, 15 plays, and some 15,000 letters. A Henry James Encyclopedia offers both the interested reader and committed scholar a wealth of information about James and his work never before available in one volume. More than 3,000 entries summarize each of James's works, describe every fictional and dramatic character in them, identify writers and artists James reviewed, discuss each important man and woman he associated with or wrote to, and define members of his extended family. The extensive encyclopedia section is preceded by a chronology that details important events in James's life. The encyclopedia itself is arranged alphabetically in one continuous set of entries, making it extremely easy to find specific information. Cross references are indicated by asterisks. In addition, twelve appendices list James's works, contacts, and characters by type (Plays, Friends of James, Actors, Actresses, Theater Managers, Composers, and Singers Mentioned by James, and so on). A bibliography completes the volume. The only book of its kind ever produced for an American writer, A Henry James Encyclopedia will be an indispensable source for Jamesian scholars as well as for students just beginning their study of his work. As such, it is an important acquisition for every American literature collection.
