Falsely accused of murder, Christopher (Kit) Chisholm escapes from a prison ship and returns home to find that his nefarious uncle has declared him dead and taken possession of his legacy, title and betrothed.
Though he has no desire to marry and has never met his intended, Lady Fiona Carmichael, Kit soon meets the captivating Lady Anne Ellyson, who is determined that he marry her cousin Fiona. But Kit and Anne share a mutual attraction that leads to mayhem and danger when the wee people of the Secret Clan add their mischievous interference to the mix.
With a master storyteller's pen, Scott deftly melds witty dialogue, the majesty of Scotland and a wee bit of magic in this excellent and imaginative romance. SENSUAL (Sep., 395 pp., $6.99)
