Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The youngest of four spirited American sisters, Sarah Bumgarten has studiously avoided her mother’s attempts to find her a titled husband among London’s aristocracy. Now, after an earl’s very public rejection, it seems her ideal mate will be anyone but a duke, a marquis, a baron, or a viscount... Thankfully, there are no noblemen in sight at Betancourt, the country estate where Sarah takes refuge. Its rightful owner, the Duke of Meridian, sibling to Sarah’s brother-in-law, has been absent for years. Accompanied by her bevy of beloved animals, Sarah delights in refurbishing the once-grand property. But even a self-assured frontier heiress needs help when greedy tenants are threatened by her presence... Out of nowhere, a stranger jumps into the fray when ruffians attack. Nothing about “Art,” the roguish interloper--now recuperating in the ducal bedchamber--smacks of nobility, with his brazen sensuality, worldly knowledge, and deeply seductive voice. Yet could he be the errant duke? If so, Sarah soon realizes this homecoming promises to be filled with unexpected challenges and passionate possibilities . . .

    Sarah Bumgarten has absolutely no use whatsoever for men. After being publicly humiliated by the man she thought was going to propose to her, Sarah left London and built a new life for herself as the self-appointed steward of Betancourt, her brother-in-law the duke of Meridian's, estate. Sarah discovers, however, that men can be useful when a stranger intervenes after she and her beloved dog, Nero, are attacked by a band of ruffians. Sarah finds herself able to truly express her gratitude when one of the tenants at Betancourt brings the same stranger, now suffering from a gunshot wound, to Sarah for treatment. But while Sarah tends to the stranger's wounds, she finds herself plagued by the same question she had when she first encountered him: why does he seem so darn familiar? Krahn wraps up her Sin & Sensibility series with another humor-laced historical romance that gets top marks for originality in plotting and for gifting readers with a one-of-a-kind heroine with grit and gumption to spare.
