Three years after his first wife's suspicious death, Laird MacLerie must remarry. Known as "The Beast," because most think him guilty of her murder, Connor has used his reputation to keep everyone from learning the dark truth -- until now.

Jocelyn agrees to marry the Beast in order to secure her brother's freedom. She leaves behind her young love and all she's known to become his wife.

Connor trains Jocelyn to be his wife in all ways, and she tames him to become the husband of her dreams. But first they must face the truth of his past and the future of their country.

Though Jocelyn is far more docile than your typical heroine, she eventually wins the day and the laird in this sweet, fast read. SENSUAL (Jul., 350 pp., $5.50)
