Greydon Brakenridge, Duke of Wycliffe, doesnt think much of Grenville Academy for Young Ladies. He turns a deaf ear to the idea that it is a school of learning. To this landlords way of thinking, all the students learn is how to lure a man into marriage.

Headmistress Emma Grenville is incensed, not only at Greys attitude, but by his decision to raise the rent. Though this arrogant rake of a man makes her senses reel, Emma goes along with the wager they both propose. The future of the academy depends on her winning their battle of wills.

Grey cant keep Emma out of his thoughts and its not long before the battle changes and propriety flies out the window. Now, who is the teacher and who is the studentthis vexing, sensual duke or this passionate, outspoken headmistress?

Fast-paced, with delightful characters, Suzanne Enoch pens a sensual, light-hearted read. SENSUAL (Aug., 380 pp., $5.99)
