When a storm casts exiled Scotsman Xanthier O'Bannon on the shores of
an island, he's rescued by the blind Alannah, who was raised by the wise woman who found her adrift in the
sea when she was an infant. Alannah's uncanny ability to communicate with
the wild horses that roam the island
fascinates Xanthier.

Vowing to protect her, Xanthier escorts Allanah to his homeland, where her search for her heritage entangles them
in a web of jealousy and hate. From the shores of a mythical island to the clan halls where friends and foes are indistinguishable, their love and a fragile trust allow Allanah and Xanthier to uncover
the truth and heal bitter wounds.

Lord is a grand mistress at blending the reality of a medieval romance with magic and myth to create a story with the essence of a fairy tale and the drama of a grand epic. Those who love Mary Stewart will savor Lord's latest. SENSUAL (Feb., 380 pp., $6.50)
