Lorraine Heath brings characters from her heartfelt Texas trilogy into a new series set in Victorian England, perfectly mixing the spirited Wild West and staid Britain.

A father's dying wish brings the Westland family back to England. Lydia Westland believes she is prepared to face society, but is she ready for the new Marquess of Blackhurst, Rhys Rhodes?

The title and its responsibility were thrust upon Rhys when his brother died. Feeling unworthy due to his past misdeeds (and there are many), Rhys is shocked by his sudden attraction to the innocent Lydia. But Lydia is determined to get her man.

Heath possesses the great ability to tap into readers' sensitivities. She proves that whether the setting be the American West or British estates she can create characters, conflicts and passions that draw us in and make us care—a mark of a great storyteller. SENSUAL (Jun., 380 pp., $5.99)
