Lady Emalie Montgomerie is ruined. Only the intervention of Queen Eleanor can save the Crown's ward from being forced to marry cruel Prince John.

Meanwhile, Christian Dumont and his brother lay in a French prison, thanks to their father's treason. Now King Richard offers them freedom, provided Christian swears his family loyalty and submission. Not only would he save his brother and himself, but he can restore his family's lands. Not until later does Christian learn the other part of the deal: he must marry an English woman.

Terri Brisbin does a nice job developing the personalities of the hero and heroine in a typical medieval romance. Readers will be intrigued from the beginning. SENSUAL (Nov., 250 pp., $5.25)
