Of average height with curly brown hair and a curvy figure, Miss Camille Croft is certainly not the waifish, delicate beauty that society reveres. Though she does not want for marriage proposals (there have a been a few), none are from the man she desires most—former military officer Eric Ford.

A big man, Eric is gentle and in his eyes Camille is truly a beautiful woman. He has deep feelings for her but fears that their 10-year age difference, along with the malaria that occasionally plagues him, would make him a poor marriage prospect. Can Camille prove him wrong?

A young woman befriended by Eric and Camille and an old enemy out for revenge round out the rousing ensemble of this enjoyable, sensual romance. SENSUAL (Nov., 374 pp., $5.99)
