THE WIFE TEST
Foundling Chloe of Guilbray has been raised in the convent of the Brides of Virtue, "where brides are made, and not born." To uncover her parentage, she accompanies a group of brides to England.
Sir Hugh of Sennet would rather be in the monastery than escorting potential brides. He has no use for women or their wiles, yet he's conflicted about "Sister" Chloe. Differing on everything makes their journey a challenge, but when all the brides become the target of an enemy plot, Hugh and Chloe are brought closer together. Along with the danger comes Chloe's chance to find her father, but will her dreams be shattered by a nobleman's schemes?
Wit and whimsy, passion and romance shine in this delicious tale from one of the genre's most original writers. Krahn's faith in mankind's ability to see good shines through, as she creates a tale worth remembering. SENSUAL (Jul., 350 pp., $6.99)
