The latest de Warenne novel is pure Joyce with its trademark blend of searing sensuality, wild escapades and unforgettable characters. You'll find warmth and romance alongside intense emotions and powerful relationships. It's a story you won't easily forget.

Ariella de Warenne is a radical thinker whose unconventional attitudes place her outside the world of proper young ladies. When a Gypsy band makes camp on her family's land, she's drawn to their leader without realizing he's her wealthy neighbor, Emilian St. Xavier.

Pulled away from his mother and his Rom heritage as a child, Emilian was raised by his father to take over the title. He cares little for what the ton thinks of him, yearning to roam free. When he spies Ariella on the fringe of the camp, he sees her as the target of his hatred against those who killed his mother. He warns her away, but she cannot go, and since a de Warenne loves but once, it's Emilian who's at a disadvantage. He may plan to use and ruin Ariella, but she will teach him the true meaning of love. (HQN, Apr., 380 pp., $7.99)
