The Wallflower series, which centers on four outsiders determined to make their mark on British society and find perfect matches, continues with lively, outspoken American heiress Miss Lillian Bowman. She attempts to melt the composure of "ice prince" Marcus, Lord Westcliff. But the nobleman wants nothing to do with anyone as outrageous as a wallflower. Why, he's even seen her and her friends in their undergarments!

Marcus is firm in his belief that Lillian is insolent and stubborn; she's positive that he's an arrogant snob. It's quite obvious that they're perfect for one another, but will they ever see it?

Leave it to the talented Kleypas to show just how opposites attract in this wildly sensual, highly romantic story. By playing into the "taming the untamable" fantasy, and combining it with a delicious battle of wills, Kleypas sets the stage for a fast-paced and completely unforgettable addition to your keeper shelf. SENSUAL (Oct., 400 pp., $7.50)
