Highland warrior Sigimor Cameron arrives at Drunwich Castle to pay a debt to a friend. It's too late for him to help the man who saved his life, but not the man's sister, Lady Jolene Gerard.

To escape her murderous kinsman, Jolene puts her faith in the Scotsman her cousin has imprisoned. She agrees to set him free if he will help Jolene and her nephew to safety.

Sigimor and Jolene flee to safety in Scotland. But as their enemies come closer, it appears the only way to keep Jolene out of harm's way is for them to marry.

It's obvious to everyone that they share a strong attraction, but Sigimor and Jolene are too stubborn to surrender their hearts. As their pride keeps them apart, however, their desires pull them together and allow them to defeat their foe.

Howell brings remarkable characters, exhilarating adventures and glorious passion to life. Highland Conqueror is a lively captive-/captor-style romance, with verbal battles, heated love scenes, nefarious villains and excitement on every page. SENSUAL (Mar., 384 pp., $6.50)
