American heiress Kitty Robertson (from Never Love a Cowboy) is thrilled to be marrying the man she has loved for years, the fun-loving Marquess of Farthingham. Then she spies a most magnificent man stepping out of the water—Richard Stanbury, the Duke of Weddington—and everything changes.

Richard sees Kitty watching him. He knows the naive American thinks a marriage to Farthingham will be perfect, but Richard knows Farthingham's secret.

To save Farthingham from embarrassment and Kitty from a loveless marriage, Richard concocts a daring scheme that will either save them all or condemn them to misery. Kitty cannot help falling in love with the sexy rake, and Richard is determined to keep Kitty for himself.

As in Edith Wharton's The Buccaneers, this heiress is all American, outspoken, spirited, intelligent and unafraid. Richard is a true gentleman of honor, duty and great passion. The clever plotting and engaging cast of secondary characters hook readers in this passionate, steamy, deep-sigh read that you'll savor. SENSUAL (Jun., 384 pp., $5.99)
