The first book in The Rose Hunters trilogy introduces
an unforgettable cast of
characters and a story to take to heart.

Kate Nash Blackburn, married and
widowed within two years, also bears the responsibility of keeping herself and her two sisters out of poverty. When she finds the means to regain financial security,
she heads for the Highlands. But her
coach breaks down and she's stranded at a Scottish tavern. In desperation she accepts aid from Christian "Kit" MacNeill, a soldier returned from the wars and a member of a group known as the Rose Hunters, dedicated to helping the families of those who helped them escape from French prison.

On the trip, Kate and Kit discover a
deep passion, but once they reach their destination, a treasure hunt, friends who may be foes and their love place them in grave circumstances.

Brockway always amazes with her ability to create real and unforgettable characters, witty dialogue and unique plots. She also gives readers a story that's a feast for the heart and mind. One of the finest books of the season. SENSUAL (May, 384 pp., $6.99)
