Robbie Mackenzie likes the lassies, and the lassies adore the brawny, sexy Highlander. But after 10 years it is time he return home, marry his chosen bride and take his place beside his father, the Black Stag of Kintail, as leader of the clan.

Following her mother's dying wish that an old debt be paid, Julianna Mackay is headed to Mackenzie lands when she is injured and rescued by the man she thinks of as her knight in shining armor—Robbie.

Complications he never imagined arise when Robbie arrives at Castle Eilean Creag with Julianna. His fiancée's jealousy, treacherous plots and Julianna's mission collide to thrust them into a dangerous passion.

Welfonder brings the Highlands to life with her vibrant characters, impassioned stories and vivid descriptions. The gothic overtones add a delicious darkness and intensity to this enthralling read. SENSUAL (Jul., 364 pp., $6.50)
