The remarkable Bedwyns return and carry you into their world of intrigue, passion and privilege, as Lady Morgan Bedwyn catches the eye of notorious rake Gervase Ashford, the Earl of Rosthorn.

Exiled to the continent after a horrific scandal, Gervase has had years to plan his revenge against Wulf Bedwyn. He never expects opportunity to come in the form of Wulf's beautiful sister, Morgan.

When Brussels is under attack by the French and her brother is reported dead, Morgan needs Gervase to escort her home. In her vulnerable state, she falls in love with him, but what will happen when this independent-minded miss learns of Gervase's ties to her family's past?

With her usual great skill and impeccable understanding of the era, Balogh takes what could be a typical plotline and turns it into a tale with great emotional depth and strong character development, then sets that love story against an exciting historical backdrop. This is what a great Regency romance should be, and what Balogh does best. A glorious romance and a marvelous story that lifts your spirits. SENSUAL (Jan., 384 pp., $5.99)
