In this third book about three survivors of the Titanic, Marjorie MacTavish and doctor Jason Abernathy discover love in spite of their longtime animosity.

Marjorie lost the love of her life in the sinking of the Titanic and has remained aloof from all interested males. Jason was attracted to Marjorie but too recently widowed to feel comfortable with his feelings, so he's teased her constantly. Now, musical talent and opposing parts in a production of The Pirates of Penzance help them open their eyes and hearts to each other.

Robins completes her trilogy nicely, and her depiction of the strained racial relations in the city during this era is a definite plus, but readers unfamiliar with the classic operetta may feel somewhat disconnected. This is still recommended reading, however, especially for readers already acquainted with Loretta and Malachai Quarles, whose story continues here as a subplot. SENSUAL (Apr., 352 pp., $5.99)
