With her husband, Michael, dead on their wedding day, Caroline Duncan
is terrified. She knows that Michael's stepbrother Brace is behind his death and that he wants her.

Caroline flees and winds up in San Sebastian, Texas, where she settles into
a pleasant life until bounty hunter Wade Renault arrives. Caroline knows Wade
is there for her and confronts him, but he forces her to leave town with him. Caroline proclaims her innocence in Michael's death, and Wade begins to have doubts about Brace's story, so he takes her to his home in New Orleans.

During the journey, Caroline becomes ill and Wade cares for her. The attraction builds and Wade decides that if she marries him, he will be able to protect her.
When Brace tracks the couple to
New Orleans and kidnaps their adopted son, Caroline goes after him. Will Wade
be in time to save them, and will she ever be able to tell him how much
she loves him?

Fast-paced and filled with adventure, this is a great read. Wade is the hero every woman would want to save her. O'Banyon has created some wonderful characters, an interesting plot and an entertaining book. SENSUAL (Aug., 363 pp., $6.99)
