The first book in a trilogy, about three sisters with unique abilities, introduces the stunningly beautiful Isobel MacDonnell, a white witch being escorted to her betrothed by Sir Philip Kilpatrick.

Few know of Isobel's talent to "see things" and she prays she can keep it a secret from Sir Philip and her fiancé, but she senses her powers can ease Philip's horrible burden of guilt.

On their arduous journey, Isobel and Philip encounter an assortment of characters and accusations that nearly end in Isobel being declared a witch. Philip falls in love with Isobel and places his life in danger to protect her.

Torn between duty and desire, Isobel and Philip must make life-altering decisions that Holling makes so real you'll feel each painful moment yourself. Rooted in reality with wonderful fantasy elements, this is a charming and tender read. SENSUAL (Jun., 380 pp., $6.99)
