When Claire Orwell is released from Newgate Prison and asked to travel to America to open the Duchess of Beaumont's summer house, she seizes the opportunity. When she's mistaken for the duchess she impulsively decides to impersonate the lady and win the heart of wealthy Hank Cassidy, the Nevada Silver King.

Rich, handsome and highly sought-after, Hank is drawn to Claire, whose beauty, combined with her outrageous and flamboyant manners, hides a seductive innocence. He'll play her game of cat-and-mouse until he can get her into his bed. Neither counts on falling in love—or the possibility of Claire's past catching up to them.

With a lush and entrancing backdrop, Ryan brilliantly leads readers into the world of the 19th century's rich and famous. Her spirited heroine meets her match in the sexy Hank, and readers will be cheering Claire on as she takes Saratoga by storm. A truly delightful, highly entertaining romance from a grand mistress of the genre! SENSUAL (Feb., 380 pp., $6.99)
