Walker suspects the demure servant is up to something and means to find out just what it is. Before long Skye and Walker are tangled in a mystery that draws them into danger and makes them wonder about their reclusive employer, his servants and a young woman and her son Skye has tried to protect. This story has a chilling ending sure to satisfy old Gothic readers and mystery fans alike.

This fourth book in the series about the five red-headed Dennehy sisters, keeps you turning the pages in a frying pan into the fire romance. Her delightful humor, pacing and scintillating mystery gives everyone one great read! SENSUAL (Reissue, March, 448 pp., $4.99)

Always in My Dreams

Submitted by Robin in PA on May 5, 2012 - 3:26pm.

New York Financier Jay Mac Worth has asked his youngest daughter, Skye Dennehy, to spy on a reclusive Inventor he has bankrolled. In order to get into the house, Skye answers Jonathan Parnell's advertisement for a housekeeper. While giving the maids their orders and inventorying supplies, Skye tries to get a peak at Parnell's latest invention. But to do that she must get rid of Parnell's assistant, Walker Caine, who is keeping close tabs on the new housekeeper.

Skye is the youngest Dennehy sister. She has no definite plans for her future except she wants adventure. Walker Caine doesn't trust his employer and wants to keep Skye out of trouble. Keeping her out of the inventor's office is the first step since it is off limits to everyone except Parnell. This is the fourth book in Goodman's Dennehy Sisters series and another solid historical romance. My rating: 4 Stars.
