The Bocastle trilogy begins with a tantalizing romp of a romance. A bit of clever treachery and a large dose of trickery lead to deliciously sensual complications.

It is the scandal of the season. Sir Nigel Boscastle leaves Lady Jane Welsham at the altar. Though it appears that she is ruined, Jane is not distraught. She's pleased that the plan she and Nigel concocted worked. He is on his way to marry the woman he loves and she is free.

But Nigel's cousin Grayson Boscastle believes he must save the lady's reputation and his family's good name by marrying Jane himself. Jane refuses his proposal, but Grayson is set to make her his own in a charming game of seduction that leads to a heated affair and a merry chase—one in which it's hard to tell who's chasing whom and who will be caught in their own trap first.

Combining humor, sensuality, a clever plot and three-dimensional characters, Hunter hits the mark. This is a not-to-be missed read! SENSUAL (May, 384 pp., $6.99)
