Message from the Author
Though this is not a book with the depth, emotional intensity and sensuality
of Sweet Savage Love or The Wildest Heart, AN HONORABLE MAN is the first book
Ms. Rogers has written in recent
years that I can say I really, really enjoyed.
Set against the tumultuous backdrop
of the Civil War, this is a sweeping epic
of a dashing Rhett Butler–style hero and
a strong-willed Southern belle.
On the eve of war, U.S. Senator's daughter Cameron Campbell is preparing
to emancipate their slaves and join her father to work with Lincoln. Her brother,
Grant, will not tolerate their defection. The result is her father's death.
Cameron must remain and help the slaves to freedom.
She needs an ally willing to take risks, and finds one in Captain Jackson Logan.
Six years ago, she lost her young heart to Jackson. Now she must place her trust
in him and learn to love the man she'd hated.
Returning to her roots with a story filled with family secrets, politics, adventure
and simmering passion, Rosemary Rogers delivers what fans have been waiting for.
Jackson is a rogue and a man of honor, and readers will admire Cameron's
strength and despise her ruthless and cowardly brother, Grant. Though Grant and
several of the secondary characters are a bit stereotypical, the rest of the cast
and the plot are not. Fans will rejoice in Ms. Roger's return to the satisfying,
romantic novels she is known for. SENSUAL (Dec., 400 pp., $7.50)
