The recently widowed Charlotte Whittington Sinclair discovers nothing good happens to eavesdroppers when she is taken captive by Nicholas Wright after she overhears a conversation about a traitor's identity.

Nicholas takes his captive to a secret hideaway until the traitor can be apprehended. His unwilling captive's intelligence and wit challenge Nicholas and soon Charlotte is more like his partner—her father is England's recently retired spymaster, after all.

This sexually charged, delightful and highly romantic tale will appeal to readers looking for a book that's more pure romance than anything else. As these two dynamic characters are locked away, their emotions and passion spill over, and readers will be held in thrall watching them fall in love in this deep-sigh read. SENSUAL (Oct., 384 pp., $5.99)
