Both beautiful and a bit prim, the notorious Mrs. Nell Nolan, a young widow from Ireland, does not live up to her reputation as a courtesan.

Its a pretense to gain entrance into society so she can settle an old debt. But, shell need help from a gentleman in the ton.

With his scarred face and dangerous demeanor, Trevor Robard, Viscount St. Wulfson, is not your average gentleman. Something about Nell stirs him and he wants her. Trevor enjoys a challenge almost as much as he enjoys his secret assignments with the British Army.

But soon the challenge turns into more of a liaison then a marriage. Ignoring the fact that someone is determined to kill him, Trevor takes Nell to his estate in Ireland.

Nell feels that her fate is indeed with Trevor, but can she trust the man with her heart?

A powerful storyteller, Ms. Jensen probes the depths of one mans spirit and one womans love in this poignant and well-crafted read. Ms. Jensen knows how to capture the era and the essence of her characters. SENSUAL (Jan., 323 pp., $5.99)
