Legend tells of the "beastie," a bejeweled statue worth a small fortune, which the Lockharts are counting on to save the family home. Liam Lockhart, a captain in the Royal Highland Regiment, is sent to London to find the beastie and raise the money his family needs.

There, he makes the acquaintance of Natalie, a precocious 9-year-old, and her beautiful mother, Ellen. Liam is instantly smitten with them both, and Ellen cannot deny her overpowering attraction to Liam.

Liam has no idea that Ellen is so
desperate to get away from her ruthless father that she would steal the beastie
to gain her freedom. When he discovers her perfidy, Liam is out for revenge and will stop at nothing to reclaim both the precious heirloom and Ellen.

With a perfect blend of passion, poignancy and humor, London
ensures her place in readers' hearts. The likable characters, intense emotions and depth of sensuality only add to a story that tugs at your heart and makes you eager for the next volume in this new trilogy. SENSUAL (Feb., 390 pp., $6.99)
