When four young ladies band together to help one another find husbands, the ton had better watch out—the "wallflowers" are coming!

Impoverished, beautiful Annabelle Peyton must marry for money to save her family. But she is drawn to a totally inappropriate tradesman's son, Simon Hunt. Simon has amassed a fortune and a reputation as a rogue. He will not deny his attraction to Annabelle—or his desire to pursue her until she catches him.

Kleypas' tale is a tried-and-true story of boy catches girl, but with surprising twists. The wallflowers make husband-hunting a team sport, and you'll not find a more delightful bunch of characters this season.

With her hallmark intense sensuality and skill for crafting a finely tuned, highly romantic tale, Kleypas pulls out all the stops as Annabelle and Simon embark upon a passionate journey of the heart. What a sheer joy to read, and you'll emit a deep sigh as you turn the last page. VERY SENSUAL (Nov., 384 pp., $6.99)
