Faith Merridew is a fallen woman. One of the Virtue Sisters, she recklessly and foolishly followed her heart and a no-good man to France. Now she is homeless and penniless in a foreign country on the run from a bunch of drunken cutthroats. Luckily she stumbles upon Nicholas Blacklock, a Waterloo veteran, who saves her from further disgrace. When Nicholas learns about her plight, he offers her a marriage of convenience to save her reputation. Faith agrees, but refuses to leave her new husband's side, even if it means sharing his bed. Nicholas is on a mission. The last thing he wants is a beautiful wife distracting him and making him want things he can't have. But love works miracles as they are both about to find out.

Book three in Gracie's "Perfect Series" is enchanting. Faith is an inspiring heroine as she conquers her fears and overcomes betrayal and heartache. And the way she battles her way into her new husband's heart is equally entertaining and moving. SENSUAL (Jun., 344 pp., $7.99)
