When she was running for her life in the Black Hills, Sabrina Conner found refuge in Sloan Trelawney's arms and in far off Scotland she discovers that the fruit of that night will bind them together for a lifetime. Married for the sake of their unborn child, Sabrina follows Sloan back to the Dakota Territory where he takes his place as an officer in the U.S. Army under General Custer.

Sabrina knows little of Sloan except that he is a man of honor and fierce pride, whose fate is tied to both his Indian heritage and his white grandfather's world. Their passion is tested as Sitting Bull and his warriors prepare to fight for their land and freedom against the maniacal hatred of General Custer and the cavalry.

Against this colorful, turbulent backdrop, Shannon Drake aka Heather Graham has set one of her most emotional and powerful romances, sweeping readers back in time as her characters are caught up in one of the greatest tragedies in our history. Her passion for detail, drama and complexity of life and relationships shines forth in this marvelous romance destined to be a reader favorite. SENSUAL (July, 384 pp., $6.50)
