While in Egypt working on a book with her sister-in- law, photographer Brianna Donally is rescued from attackers by Major Michael Fallon. She may be fiercely independent and "modern," but nothing has prepared Brianna for Michael's ability to make her desire him.

He may be a duke's son, but Michael will never be a proper Englishman. He feeds on the danger of exotic locales and his exploits are legendary, but few know of the dark secrets he keeps buried inside.

Michael and Brianna are kindred souls, but he realizes their affair is fodder for scandal. Then he unexpectedly inherits the title, is found in a compromising situation with Brianna and proposes marriage. Once back in England, the newlyweds face the ghosts of his past and a very real danger.

This is a tantalizing, emotionally packed story that seethes with sensuality and truly showcases Thomas' talent for characterization and unique settings. This type of hero and heroine makes romance readers' hearts beat faster. Add action, an exotic setting and wild passion, and what more could you want? SENSUAL (Dec., 384 pp., $5.99)
