The Malorys return in this long-awaited tale of roguish American sea captain Drew Anderson and Gabrielle Brooks, a pirate's daughter who's his match in every way.

Gabrielle loves sailing with her treasure-hunting father, but when it's time for her to wed, he sends her to his old friend, James Malory. Gabrielle finds navigating society difficult, especially after meeting her host's relative, Drew. Drew has a girl in every port and wants Gabrielle to be his latest conquest. He doesn't count on her high spirits, sharp tongue and rapier wit to draw him into more than a casual relationship.

When an old enemy captures Gabrielle's father, she commandeers Drew's ship and keeps him chained in his cabin. He sets out to turn the tables on Gabrielle, but he's about to get caught in his own trap.

This is a must for Lindsey fans! It's utterly delightful, fast-paced, witty and sparkling with that great Lindsey repartee and captive/captor plot. Here's everything you adore and expect from this grande dame at the top of her form. Lindsey brings back characters we love and adds a few new ones. There's no better way to spend your time than with the Malorys and a pirate crew -- it's like sailing off to heaven. SENSUAL (Jul., 380 pp., $25.00)
