Even though it is the night of her coming out, Carlotta Fairleigh can't resist the opportunity for one more daring escapade. She climbs out her window to take a peek at her notorious neighbor, Hayden St. Clair, aka the Murderous Marquis.

Her impetuous adventure leads to possible scandal, and she is quickly betrothed to Hayden. Now Lottie's really done it, and though Hayden would rather live a life of brooding loneliness dwelling on his dark past, he's in for some surprises.

Romance, passion, mystery, tenderness and humor are blended to perfection by a true master of the craft. Teresa Medeiros never fails to give readers a delightfully original story filled with unique, likable characters. No wonder she's adored by fans both new and old and keeps us all coming back for more! SENSUAL (Aug., 384 pp., $7.50)
