Isabella Montgomery's late father sequestered in a convent until she comes of age. He gave her in marriage to a man 30 years her senior, but she decides to become a nun rather than wed when a handsome stranger rescues her.

Scared of her future and his sexual needs, Isabella runs back to the convent. On the way she's captured by her previous fiance, a man feared for his cruelty. Will Rafael rescue her in time? (HQN, Feb., 384 pp., $6.99)
