Kendall Masterson is still reeling over the tragic car accident that killed her baby sister. After more than a year in rehab, the successful preservation architect is less than eager to resume her career.

She's even more leery of the opposite sex, having been scarred by the accident and deserted by her boyfriend in her time of need.

The last thing airline pilot Captain Joseph Stewart wants while on sabbatical is to attend an art gala with his match-making friends. At 40, he's much too mature for their schemes, no matter how well intended. Yet after meeting Kendall, the good captain just might be persuaded to change his opinions—given the right motivation.

White tackles a touchy subject with grace and style. TANGO is a compelling story, with a heroine who attempts not only to conquer her phobia but discover true love along the way. Unfortunately, the author takes her time building to the heart of the story and seems reluctant to reveal details about the hero and heroine. (Nov., 320 pp., $5.99)
