Desperate times call for desperate measures, so when her brother is kidnapped, penniless Chelsea Bellamy resurrects the identity of a notorious highwayman and robs from the rich to raise the ransom. Her only problem is stopping Anthony Greenvilles carriage.

After the robbery, Greenville becomes obsessed with the outlaw he dubs Lady Robin. When she arrives in his home intent on robbing him, they begin an unusual partnership where desire and thievery mix.

Anthony soon realizes that Chelsea is more trouble than he imagined, and her determination to raise the ransom leads them both into danger. However, the real risks come from falling in love. How can Anthony explain having a fiancie?

Betrayal, amazing exploits, simmering passion and an explosive climax will keep the pages turning fast and furious. Ms. Tarrs real gift is for creating intelligent, likable characters and placing them in extraordinary situations. The many frypan-into-the-fire adventures and the light touches of humor spice up a delightful debut. SENSUAL (Nov., 380 pp., $5.99)
