That old shade, Sir Septimus Spivey of 7 Mayfair Square, is up to his meddlesome ways again to rid his home of unwanted boarders.

His target is Adam Chillworth, a portrait artist who resides in the attic. A handsome, reserved man, Adam is in love with Princess Desiree, sister of Jean Marc, Count of Estranger.

Though Desiree has been in love with Adam for some time, this irritating man thinks he is too old for her. He agrees with her brother that she will make an acceptable bride for someone else, but Desiree will have none of that. It's Adam she wants and she sets out to change his mind about marriage—with the bumbling Sir Spivey only too happy to help.

No one is prepared for the risk Desiree and Adam will face as others try to keep them apart.

Cameron brings her cast of characters from previous Mayfair Square novels together in this well-written, funny, sensual love story. SENSUAL (Mar., 393 pp., $6.99)
