The devilishly handsome, arrogant and extremely dangerous Gideon Rochelle, the Marquis of Vere, is on a quest. For the past 10 years he's been patiently plotting to take down the man responsible for the death of his parents: the Earl of Blaidsdale.

But his revenge takes an unexpected twist when Gideon finds himself protector to Lady Constance Landford and discovers she's the earl's daughter.

Escaping from her father and his demands that she wed a despised cousin, Constance is aware of the enmity between Gideon and the earl. She offers a solution to their problems: marriage. She too has a reason to see that the man she's called father is destroyed.

Poignant and with finely drawn characters, Blayne's latest is a powerful, sensual romance that shows that love can truly heal the wounded heart. SENSUAL (Oct., 320 pp., $5.99)
