Maggie Fletcher has traveled all the way from England to the Colorado mine she inherited, hoping that she and her brother will find precious metal to live happily ever after.

However, Maggie soon discovers that none of the miners in Hoodee Doo will work in the Hellhole mine because it is haunted.

Only T.G. Manning feels something for the Hellhole's new owner.

T.G. has his own problems and when he finds himself in difficult straits, he offers to help Maggie. He finds a crew of unusual women miners (ex-convicts with delightfully different personalities) and even goes down into the mine himself. Fighting off his claustrophobia, T.G. finds himself face to face with the ghost, the meddlesome, cantankerous Butte Fesperman.

Together Maggie, T.G., the women and Butte manage to find not only a fortune, but a love that shines brighter than gold and silver combined.

With rollicking humor, poignancy and tenderness, Lori Copeland has penned another exuberant read destined to charm every love and laughter reader. SENSUAL (May. 352 pp., $5.99)
