Casity Crockett has experienced much tragedy in her young life and now, being an eyewitness to her uncle's murder places her in jeopardy. She thinks she has evaded the killers when she assumes the identity of a mail-order bride who she meets during her escape. On the way to meet her "groom," however, Casity realizes she is being stalked by the murderers.

Shaler McCain has been sent by the man he regards as his father, Tweed Cramer, to pick up his bride. Allowing Shaler to believe she is someone else, Casity accompanies him, falling both into calamities and in love with Shay.

Shay has quickly lost his heart to this girl, but trying to keep her alive and in one piece and convince her of his love is a full-time job. Kidnapping, misunderstandings and giving herself to the highest bidder seems to be Casity's lot in life. Many trials keep her and Shay apart until the final showdown between three men who all want Casity for different reasons.

FORBIDDEN KISS is a hard-to-put-down romance. You won't be able to wait to see what Casity gets into next and whether Shay and true love will triumph. Gina Robins has another winner on her hands! SENSUAL (Dec., 400 pp., $5.99)
