When Lady Eleanor seeks sanctuary at Kinfairlie, she declines the suggestion of the laird's sisters that she marry their brother Alexander.

She soon discovers that Alexander Lammergeir, Laird of Kinfairlie, is young, handsome and has a mischievous twinkle in his blue eyes. He is kind and not at all like her two deceased, abusive husbands. Wed to Alexander, she will be safe from the wrath of her last husband's kin.

Alexander demands honesty and truth in their marriage, but Eleanor holds her secrets tightly to herself, only releasing them under his gentle and loving encouragement. She discovers passion in his arms and slowly begins to trust him and he does her. But there is one secret Eleanor keeps from Alexander that will be revealed when she gives him a son.

The third of the Jewels of Kinfairlie stories, this is an enchanting read. Delacroix combines medieval chivalry with a compelling and sensual love story. SENSUAL (Nov., 422 pp., $6.99)
