Scottish Lady Margaret Mackintosh is in danger. She is betrothed, according to clan rules, to a duke with a questionable past who wants to unite their families' lands and will not take no for an answer. Nearly out of hope, Margaret's ill father sends her to their rightful clan leader, Gregor Grant, now ex-laird of Glen Dhui.
Gregor has a soft spot for women in distress, which lands him in trouble again. Just as he swears off women, a sassy, blue-eyed redhead walks in with a plea for aid. If he takes up her cause and loses, he will pay with his life.
This is a wonderful story with good historical detail that will sweep you away to the Highlands. With fiery passion, adventure and love, it leaves you with a smile and a longing to be a part of that time. SENSUAL (Oct., 380 pp., $5.99)
