Olivia Maitland needs a man; she just doesn't expect to find one lying in the road. Irish prize fighter Conor Branigan believes he's breathed his last breath when Olivia brings him home to nurse back to health.
Since the end of the Civil War, Olivia has managed her peach farm and cared for three orphaned girls without a care for her own needs. But, this brash, handsome Irishman awakens her dreams of love.
Though he knows he shouldn't get involved with a lady like Olivia, Conor promises to stay and harvest her crop. Fighting the demons of his past, Conor fears that falling in love with Olivia will hurt more than any physical wounds.
Yet, there is no way he can help falling in love with Olivia and her girls. Though he claims to have wed Olivia to save her reputation, he married her out of a deep love and fiery passion. Together they will fight the ghosts of Conor's past and the vile schemes of Olivia's greedy enemy to find love and redemption.
The beautiful, tender, heartwarming story heralds the arrival of a new writer whose style is reminiscent of Candace Camp, LaVyrle Spencer and Pamela Morsi. Americana romance readers are in for a real treat and will savor CONOR'S WAY for years to come. SENSUAL (Apr., 402 pp., $4.99)
