HOW TO ABDUCT A HIGHLAND LORD
If this first book in a new series sets the stage for what's to come, then readers can expect even more delightful, madcap, sensual adventures. Hawkins takes a fiery Scot lass and a wastrel lord and puts them together in a match made in, well, not heaven, but one that's heated, exciting and touching. Hawkins excels at taking tried-and-true plotlines and turning them into fresh, vibrant books.
It's simple to rekindle the passion they once shared and give her the child she desires, but it's not as easy to win her trust and keep the tenuous peace between their families until the surprising truth is revealed. (Pocket, Feb., 304 pp., $6.99)
