Revenge has driven Samantha Kincade to don men's clothing and become one of the West's most feared bounty hunters as she tracks down Hannibal Cotwell, the man she has vowed to kill.

Gambler Trace Harden sees through Sam's disguise and is intrigued with the unusual woman beneath the gunbelt. As soon as Sam discovers that Trace is Hannibal's half-brother she plots to use him to lure Hannibal out of hiding.

Sam doesn't know that Trace has his own reasons for hunting Hannibal down and that his shattered dreams and her hostility will bind them together as they travel the west in search of one man. Slowly trust will turn to desire and hate to love, but in the end they must face the pain of the past and confront their personal demons.

Her talent for creating legendary characters is reaffirmed as readers recognize her innovation and power in every page. SENSUAL (Sept., 380 pp., $5.99)
