Sir Alasdair MacLachlan is too handsome for his own good, and he's about to get what his mother calls his comeuppance. Esmée Hamilton arrives on his doorstep with her infant sister and claims Alasdair is the child's father.

Upon her mother's death, Esmee's stepfather threw her and little Sorcha out on the streets. With nowhere else to go, Esmee tracks down Alasdair, positive that he was her mother's longtime lover.

Alasdair has surely committed his share of sins, but he's not sure Sorcha is one of them. However, he will not turn his back on the determined Esmée, or the possibility that Sorcha is his responsibility. He takes them in, which opens the door to an entirely new chance at love, family and the home he wants.

Carlyle seamlessly weaves threads of heated passion with poignancy and tenderness. You'll fall in love with the characters, take joy in their growing love and laugh out loud at the shocking ending. Carlyle brings another enchanting, exquisite romance to readers. SENSUAL (Oct., 350 pp., $6.99)
