Volunteering to help the children at a local orphanage, Miss Evelyn Ruddick comes head to head with its director, the Marquis of St. Aubyn, who thinks Evelyn is just another flighty female pretending to do good deeds.

Cynical, arrogant and sinfully handsome, "Saint" prefers woman with more experience than this naive chit. However, Evelyn might be just the thing to chase away his boredom and offer him some amusement in his game of seduction. But he gets more than he bargained for: Evelyn looks him straight in the eye (though she quakes in her shoes) and doesn't back down from his sexually outrageous remarks. What will become of them when Evelyn can no longer ignore the feelings this virile man awakens in her.

Fast-paced and with a cast of beguiling orphans, a devilish hero and a compelling heroine, Enoch's story is wickedly, delicious! SENSUAL (May., 380 pp., $5.99)
