Balogh returns with a new addition to her Simply series. This lovely, languid tale set in the quiet countryside brings back many of her beloved characters so we can catch up on old friends while meeting a few new and memorable ones. Though not as emotionally intense as Simply Love, the third of this quartet is a beautiful love story that gently stirs the senses and reminds us that love can be tame as well as wild.

Four friends, once teachers
at Miss Martin's School, gather at
a country home where Miss Susanna Osbourne is introduced to Peter Edgeworth, Viscount Whitleaf, a nobleman whose attentions make her feel both beautiful and scared.

Peter has never been as entranced with a woman as he is with Susanna. Intent upon winning her respect, he sets about pursuing her but discovers that the more he moves toward her, the quicker she retreats. Even during their sensual cat-and-mouse game, he can't get close enough to understand what she fears. Assuming it has to do with her past, Peter begins to unearth long-buried secrets and, with the help of her friends, finds the means to erase the unhappiness of the past and bring them into a future bright with love and passion. (Delacorte, Apr., 326 pp., $22.00)
