Sinclair’s latest historical romance is a triumph, with fast-paced action, authentic dialogue and strong, well-written characters. It’s a tale of two lonely souls who find hope, love and each other despite the lies, secrets and betrayal surrounding them.

Bronwyn de Betron is left in charge of the family home and her younger sisters until her father returns with the new heir to Hunswick Castle. Unfortunately, her father is dead and the new heir, Lord Ranulf de Gunnar, is hateful, uncouth and — by order of the king — engaged to her baby sister. Bronwyn impersonates her sister until she can come up with a plan of escape. But, the last thing she expects to find is a heart beneath Ranulf’s gruff exterior or a love more powerful than either of them thought possible. (ZEBRA, Oct., 408 pp, $6.99)
