Intent upon proving himself as a man and physician, not a wastrel, Dr. Reilly Stanton, 8th Marquis of Stillworth, takes a post in a remote village of the Isle of Skye.

The harsh climate and primitive conditions are difficult, but his life is really made challenging by Brenna Donnegal. The tall redhead with the fiery temper has taken over her fathers medical practice and has no use for the city-bred Reilly.

Wanting Brenna as his wife, the corrupt Lord Glendenning, a nobleman, attempts to enlist Reillys help in forcing Brenna into marriage. But Reilly admires his feisty rival and begins falling in love with her.

The delightfully charming tale set against the backdrop of the harsh, beauty of the Isle of Skye is everything a feminist reader could wantan empowered woman and strong hero, and an exciting and satisfying love story. Patricia Cabot knows how to vividly bring a story and characters to life. SENSUAL (Jan., 400 pp., $5.99)
