TO LOVE A STRANGER, the first book in the new trilogy by a beloved romance writer introduces readers to the memorable Delaney brothers whose exciting and sensual adventures are sure to please.

Unjustly accused of seducing a young woman, Pierce Delaney flees Dry Gulch, Montana, pursued by a band of vigilantes intent upon seeing him brought to "justice." Wounded and in need of shelter, Pierce hides in Zoey Fuller's root cellar, unaware that he will be the answer to her prayers.

Zoey needs a temporary husband to foil the schemes of a ruthless banker intent upon stealing her home. Pierce will fit the bill by masquerading as her fianc, just returned to make her his bride.

Though all she wants is her freedom, Zoey cannot help but be attracted to the virile Pierce and he finds her a tempting young woman-one he wouldn't mind making his own.

As Pierce recuperates and then helps Zoey with her ranch, a powerful desire grows between them that becomes too strong to ignore. But Pierce's past, the need to clear his name, his brothers and her scheming enemy add delicious spice to a tale already blazing with sexual tension.

Connie Mason delivers another fast-paced, sexy tale that ensures her fans a wonderful night's read and will have them eager for the next tale and more of the devilishly charming Delaney boys' adventures. SENSUAL (Oct., 384 pp., $5.99)
