Years as a warring knight kept Robin de Piaget from his beloved home, Artane, and the woman he had once loved. Anne of Fenwyck has almost given up hope of ever seeing Robin again when he finally returns.

Annes happiest times were spent during the years she was fostered at Artane and now she has returned with her father who wants her to marry and marry now. But Anne loves Robin and no other. She feels her crippled leg will not repel him.v The childhood love they shared now turns to adult passion. Yet neither are aware of a murderous plot that targets not only Robin and Anne, but also his family.

The unique characters (a crippled heroine and tortured hero) are as touching as any of Ms. Kurlands others. It is easy to become involved in the story and root for Anne to win Robins love with her special talents for handling sensitive situations. SENSUAL (Oct., 400 pp., $6.99)
