In the small bayou community among the Vermillian River, Aida Gaudet is considered the most beautiful girl and the most desirable to woo. She has set the town into a whirlwind with one man after another vying for her affections.

Ever since she was a young girl, however, Aida has set her sights on one special man, Armand Sonnier. She even gave him a powerful love charm when they were children.

Armand is a staid, settled man with more on his mind then a flighty female like Aida-or so he thinks. Still, Armand is not immune to her charm, but she's engaged to his best friend and he would never ruin that friendship.

All Aida wants is true love and all Armand desires is an intelligent woman who offers more than surface beauty. What no one counts on is Aida's determination, her practical nature and a little help from a voodoo love charm to set everything right.

Pamela Morsi brings a bit of magic, sweet touches of humor and her heartfelt warmth to this unforgettable love story. Beautifully told with all the wondrous color of the bayou Acadian culture and the scents and atmosphere of the town, THE LOVE CHARM is a rare treat, a delicacy to be relished and savored. SENSUAL (Nov., 384 pp., $5.99)
