Tired of her three brothers' overprotectiveness, Lady Eleanor Griffin declares her right to make her own decisions, including choosing a husband.

The older brother, the Duke of Melbourne, agrees to her request, with one stipulation: If she causes a scandal, she must marry the man of his choosing. Melbourne then asks his friend Valentine Corbett, the Marquis of Deverill, to watch over Eleanor.

Asking the notorious rake Valentine to keep Eleanor out of trouble is like putting the cat in with the canary. When one of Eleanor's adventures goes awry, Valentine comes to her aid. The more Valentine sees of Eleanor, the more he wants to spend time with her, until he discovers he loves her and wants to marry her.

Eleanor still wants her great adventure, but will she come to realize that the greatest adventure she can have is with Valentine? With her engaging characters, Enoch delivers a sensual and splendid novel that shows that the greatest adventure is love. SENSUAL (Jan., 384 pp., $5.99)
