The latest Grayson brother story brings readers back to Freedonia to see Sheriff Duke Grayson discover what love is all about from gentle healer Faith Wilkins.

With her four aunts, her brother and little daughter, Faith moves to town to set up business as an herbalist. No one knows about her shocking background, but Faith has to keep out of trouble or she'll jeopardize the family's chance for a new life. But it's not easy keeping secrets from Duke, who tries to help when her brother gets into trouble and later comes to Faith to heal his injured shoulder. Though Duke suspects something is amiss, he's far too enchanted with Faith and her meddling aunts to care.

Lindstrom's heartwarming, homespun romance overflows with tenderness as she explores the intricacies of family ties, love and loyalty. Her innate understanding of the bonds formed by blood and friendship turn a sweet story into a tale with deep emotional meaning. SENSUAL (Oct., 380 pp., $6.99)
