Into his life she came—wanting…willing…wanton.

It’s no ordinary morning when Toni arrives at Zach’s garage. Flat broke, with a past she won’t share, Toni is instantly taken by such a potently virile man. Direct and unashamed, she tells him she’s a motorcycle performance artist who needs work and knows motors.

Zach knows women, and Toni is unlike any he’s met. Lushly sensuous, exceedingly assured, she’d easily be his match in business and bed. A provocative challenge that stirs him as nothing has since losing his wife. A chance he’s reluctant to take. He offers no more than a month’s employment then she’ll have to be on her way.

The hours tick by. Each word and glance intensifies their escalating desire, forcing them to surrender to passion and Toni’s need for Zach’s dominance. Driven by carnal hunger, conquered by yearning, they face the unforeseen truth of Toni’s past and a future neither of them expected.


The chemistry between Zach and Toni is mesmerising and will draw you in and lead you on to find out what happens. As Toni and Zach burn with desire so will you. Sensual Stranger is a page turner with erotic and hot love scenes. There is a little bondage, D/s play, and spanking mixed in the love scenes that is done very tastefully, and adds to the level of trust the characters have for one another.

As the story progresses, you will yearn to know the background story to these characters that seem to come alive on the pages. Tina Donahue really makes you care about her characters. As a reader, you’ll feel Toni’s sorrow and despair. Zach’s loss makes him vulnerable and realistic. He wants to find happiness again, but he’s just scared of the possibility of rejection. You’ll be rooting for them as a couple.

Toni’s mysterious past haunts her throughout the story and keeps her from moving forward until she’s confronted by it and Zach. Tina Donahue does a nice job of keeping up the suspense until the final revealing confrontation between Zach and Toni.

This story is entertaining, definitely sensual, and will leave you wanting more of Tina Donahue’s creations.
