RT Rating

Velvet Cavandish grew up worshiping young Prince Charles, even though she's betrothed to his friend Robert Greysteel Montgomery. While Charles waits in exile, Greysteel works as a double agent in England to restore Charles to the throne.

Though strong-willed and highly determined, Velvet doesn't reckon with Greysteel's deep resolve to make her
his own. Even when she accuses him
of betraying Charles, her anger only fires his passion for her.

Equally dedicated to Charles and Velvet, Greysteel goes after what he wants, never wavering in his vow to
his king or his promise to Velvet.
Only the cruelties of a terrible plague
can pull them apart or bring them
closer together.

Henley's gift for bringing remarkable women to life in colorful, turbulent times is what turns her romances into keepers. Henley heats up the pages
with her love scenes, and her skill
at portraying actual historical personages with humanity while maintaining historical accuracy wins our minds. Henley knows what historical romance
is all about and always gives the readers what they want. SENSUAL (Sep., 406
pp., $7.99)
