In her fight for women's rights, Elizabeth Dunaway plots to get arrested in order to bring attention to her cause. She doesn't expect to be rescued by Ross Carrington, the Earl of Blakestone, and be caught in a lie that results in their marriage.

Elizabeth has secrets she doesn't want Ross investigating. If he finds out that she's behind the "disappearance" of several women who fled forced marriages, she'll find herself in jail again.

As a gentleman spy, Ross has his own agenda: keeping a sharp eye on Russian and Austrian movements. Their secret worlds collide, a diplomatic mission is jeopardized and Ross and Elizabeth join forces to rescue a missing woman and save England. Love only makes them stronger, and their bonds of passion make them a team to be reckoned with.

Needham captures your attention with her appealing characters and engaging plot with feminist overtones. SENSUAL (Jun., 384 pp., $5.99)
