Sebastian Reyne went from rags to riches through hard work. After years of searching, he has located his sisters and brought them home. Having a tough time taming the two little hellions, he decides he needs a wife and chooses Lady Eleanor. One waltz with Miss Hope Merridew, however, throws his plans into a tailspin.

Hope can't ignore her attraction to Sebastian, but how can a tenderhearted lady win a man set on another? By helping him snag the woman he thinks he wants while making sure he finds the one who's perfect for him.

Sebastian is smitten with Hope but believes he must marry Lady Eleanor for his sisters' sakes. What a quandary! How the author manages to get these two together not only makes for a delightful Regency romance but also a study of two strong-willed people and their families. Beneath the lighthearted charm is a depth of emotion and lessons on the ties that bind and the strength of love to heal wounds. You'll savor every page. SENSUAL (Nov., 384 pp., $6.99)
