There's no better way to start a month than with another knockout book from Lacey Dancer, who winds up her smashing quartet with NOELLE (4.5). The last of four adopted daughters sets out on her own after her sister's wedding and ends up stranded on a mountain top with a handsome stranger after a terrifying plane crash. Will she find the courage to put aside her dreamy facade for the one man who sees the true woman behind the mask? Ms. Dancer mesmerizes us with strikingly original characterizations and an irresistibly intense passion.
