The last in the Dennehy sisters' quartet places Mary Dennehy in an interesting situation. Mary is naked the first time Ryder McKay sees her. Temptation is sweet, but Mary's a nun.

Months later they meet again. Mary has renounced her vows and Ryder is about to hang for treason. Desperate, Ryder escapes, taking Mary hostage.

They hide in a cave as bounty hunters track them. When Mary tries to escape, Ryder takes away her clothes. Mary finally confesses she is no longer a nun and Ryder rushes her to the altar.

Their honeymoon ends when their paradise is compromised. The newlyweds decide to find the real traitors before they start their future together.

This is a tale of forbidden passion and roller coaster adventure. Though the story is fun and the characters delightful, the slow pace at the beginning may make some readers lose interest before the story really gets started. SENSUAL (Reissue, March., 350 pp., $4.99)
