With her mortal enemy on her heels, Lady Kenna Lennox needs passage to Paris. American privateer Colin Montgomery is intrigued by the red-haired beauty but refuses to take her. He redeems himself by arranging safe passage for her on another ship, and Kenna arrives in France and becomes the pupil of a legendary swordmaster. She hones her skills, preparing for the day when she can kill her enemy, Lord Walter, the Englishman who murdered her brothers and tortured her sister.

Colin follows Kenna to France to ensure her safe arrival. Obsessed with the passionate lass, he returns just as tragedy strikes. Colin takes Kenna to Scotland, but evil follows them home. Despite the burning passion between them, Kenna sends Colin away, for he is too big a distraction, and she must take up her sword and face her enemy alone.

Coffman's latest is a passionate tale of star-crossed lovers who seem worlds apart. Luckily, love triumphs over greed and evil. SENSUAL (Apr., 384 pp., $6.99)
