A WARRIOR'S TAKING
Best known for her medieval romances, Maguire begins a fantastic new trilogy about time-traveling warriors on quests through time in search of a sacred object and true love. The multitalented author has a great start to what looks to be an exciting series.
Sarah Granger has had enough to deal with since her employer's death. The new heir is about to throw her and her charges out, and she is penniless. She doesn't have time for an arrogant, pompous Scotsman more interested in ancient ruins than in her. But the attraction between them is too powerful to be denied.
But Druzai law forbids warriors from mingling with Tuath women, so Brogan sets out to find Sarah a husband who will admire her spirit and her beauty. His efforts are all for naught when he realizes he wants her for himself, the law be damned. (Avon, Jul., 384 pp., $5.99)
