Sophie Wentworth, American expatriate, is a musical sensation in Europe. But Sophie leaves fame behind to return home to her beloved Swans Grace. She has waited five years for her father to call her home to the house she adores.

Sophie is shocked to discover that her father has sold Swans Grace and arranged for her marriage to attorney Grayson Hawthorne as part of a business deal.

Sophie cant forget Graysons betrayal, the reason she fled Boston for Europe. But Grayson still desires her and the more Sophie struggles to hate him, the more she falls in love, putting distrust and pain aside.

Linda Francis Lees talent for bringing the Gay Nineties to life has never been better than in this intense story of love lost and found. Strong characters and their realistic emotions, feelings so real that we understand the characters pain and eventual joy, set Ms. Lees work apart. SWANS GRACE is a stand-out for readers anticipating a powerful relationship book that captivates. SENSUAL (Sep., 350 pp., $5.99)
