Embittered by his wife's tragic death, Sergeant Major Travis Reid is determined to sell his famous brood mares to a distant rancher. He's set to leave when Jessica Haven, the mayor's pampered princess of a daughter, makes him an outrageous proposition: take her along.

Like Travis, Jessica carries a deep emotional burden. No one knows of the birth of her stillborn son, nor that she believes her child is alive. The only man who knows the truth, Dr. Finch, is where Travis is headed.

Fate brings these two wounded souls together on a journey that sizzles with sexual tension. Their anger and passions explode as Bridges displays her talent for creating a story of great emotional depth.

Though the plot is not new, the power of Bridges' writing is sure to capture readers' attention. SENSUAL (Sep., 350 pp., $5.25)
