Book three in the Ashton/Rosemoor Family series is another delightful, fun and sensual romance featuring an English rogue and a bold Scottish lassie who find love crosses all boundaries.

Mistakenly abducted as an infant, Brenna Maclachlan has been raised in the Highlands and becomes a true Scot. She despises the English, so imagine her shock when she learns that she's really Lady Margaret Ballard, a British heiress with a twin brother.

Accusations of ungentlemanly behavior ruin Lord Colin Rosemoor's chance at an advantageous marriage. He must find a way to repair his reputation, so he seeks Hugh Ballard, Brenna/Margaret's brother, for help, but meets Brenna instead. She agrees to help if he'll aid her in a fight against an odious act imposed on the Scots. Their bargain goes from business arrangement to desire when Colin helps Brenna discover who's trying to kill her.

Even with its lighthearted plotline, there is a depth of emotion and passion in Cook's tale that's sure to pull on your heartstrings and place her next to Julia Quinn and Stephanie Laurens on your shelf. SENSUAL (Jun., 352 pp., $4.99)
