Celebrate the return of the irascible Boscastles in this emotionally intense, thought-provoking, highly romantic and sensual love story you'll cherish. Hunter's ability to touch chords deep within readers' hearts
is what sets her apart and makes her and everything she writes a keeper.

When Lady Althea Claridge hears that the "devil" has come to take possession of neighboring Helbourne Hall, and that he's bent on getting himself and his horse killed, she rushes to stop an accident and discovers Sir Gabriel Boscastle.

Gabriel hardly recognizes the beautiful young woman as his childhood savior. She's just as strong-willed and kind as before, but the underlying sadness in her eyes perturbs him. Althea believes Gabriel is as rash as always and just as devastatingly handsome. It's inevitable that they spend time together and begin to fall in love. But Gabriel is not secure in himself or in Althea's love. He allows dark thoughts to nearly destroy their love. Althea's faith, intelligence and kindness can be his salvation if he can keep pride from destroying their chance for happiness. (Ballantine, Jul., 380 pp., $6.99)
