After being discharged from the British army, Jacques Decernay, turncoat Frenchman, is charged with desertion and sentenced to death when a letter from Lady Sophia Hamilton rescues him.

Years ago, Jacques saved Sophia's life—now she returns the favor. It's not easy for her to risk her reputation, especially since her husband was killed fighting the French.

Learning that Napoleon has escaped from Elba, Jacques suspects that Sophia might be in danger and follows her to the country, not realizing she unknowingly holds the secret to a viciously ruthless traitor's identity.

This riveting book, with its three- dimensional characters, deeply emotional storyline filled and rich historical detail, is reminiscent of Mary Balogh and Mary Jo Putney's Regency-set romances. SENSUAL (Jun., 433 pp., $6.99)
