Major Marcus Dunn will be no man's puppet, not even Wellington's, but he's compelled to take on a dangerous role for the Crown. His mission lands him straight in the path of Catherine Miller, a lovely, shy young woman, until the safety of her childhood home is jeopardized.

Marcus' father runs Catherine's home, the orphanage where she and her brother are safe from ruthless relatives. She will do anything for Master Dunn, but ignoring his roguish son and keeping to her plan isn't so simple.

Marcus remembers Catherine as a child. Now she's a woman to be reckoned with and once he discovers she's found the secret diary of the infamous "thief of Robinson" and is planning to disguise herself as the outlaw to exact revenge on her enemy, he's got trouble with a capital "T." If Marcus exposes Catherine, then he risks his assignment, and if he stays to protect her, he's risking his heart.

Robins continues to grow with her engaging tales, charming characters and lighthearted, poignant plots. She gives readers plenty to smile and sigh about. SENSUAL (Jul., 384 pp., $5.99)
