If riding the "high toby" with a sexy outlaw is your dream, then MacTavish (aka Dawn Thompson) makes it true
in her adventurous debut. Strong characters, a finely tuned plotline and
a wonderful atmosphere more than compensate for some plot contrivances and a stereotypical villain.

Lady Jenna Hollingsworth believes she's avenged her father's death at the hands of the highwayman known as the Marsh Hawk the night she stalks the brigand and shoots him. Then she spies a masked man at her betrothal costume ball and realizes she's looking into the outlaw's eyes.

It's at the gala that Jenna is to announce her betrothal to Viscount Rupert Marner. Instead, fate thrusts her into marriage with Simon Rutherford, the Earl of Kevernwood. Though neither would deny that they are attracted to one another, Jenna wonders if she married the notorious highwayman, and Simon ponders how to keep her guessing about his identity. Caught up in a passionate game of hide and seek, Jenna and Simon have no idea what a ruthless enemy they have made of Rupert, who is determined to expose the Marsh Hawk. (Leisure, Jul., 380 pp., $6.99)
