To save her estate, Millicent Wentworth agrees to wed the infamous Lord Aytoun. She'll also be able to free the servants her ruthless, now-deceased husband had enslaved.

Crippled in the accident that killed his wife, Lyon Pennington, Earl of Aytoun, is wallowing in grief. He lies unmoving and uncaring until his mother arranges his remarriage. Unshaven, unruly and roaring like a lion, Lyon is not what Millicent bargained for, but with gentleness and kindness she manages to soothe the savage beast.

May McGoldrick weaves powerful and relevant social issues of the era into a truly beautiful romance that shimmers with the power of love healing wounded souls and bodies. A triumphant tale! SENSUAL (Jun., 400 pp., $6.99)
