To secure peace between their people, two Viking warriors and one Saxon lord make marriages to bring their different cultures together. Two men have fulfilled their destinies; now it is Dragon Hakonsons turn.

Needing time before he must wed a Saxon bride, Dragon goes on a hunting trip. Instead of peace, he finds a maiden dressed as a lad, who is determined to ruin his life. Little does he know that she is his betrothed.

Rycca has no desire to marry a Viking warrior, even to help bring about peace. When she encounters the most handsome man she has ever seen, Rycca decides she must know passion before she weds.

By escorting her to safety, Dragon thinks he is doing the right thing, not knowing who she is or why she runs from him.

Another fiery battle-of-wills romance to tantalize and intrigue readers. By bringing back the characters from the other novels in the trilogy and completing the mystery that has surrounded all of them, Ms. Litton ties up all the loose ends and gives us a powerful romance and a new author to cherish. SENSUAL (Oct., 400 pp., $5.99)
