The final book in the Trap trilogy wraps the reader in humor and sensuality when Christopher "Kit" Winter agrees to turn wallflower Eliza Hammond into the catch of the season.

Suddenly wealthy, Eliza must find a husband. She needs someone to guide her through the society maze, though, and there's no one more suited for the job than Kit. He's patient, funny, kind and tempts her to forget all about being shy and self-deprecating.

Kit is stunned at Eliza's transformation from duckling to swan as lessons in riding and dancing turn to lessons in kissing and lovemaking after her curiosity's aroused by what she's seen in a "research" book. But it's Kit who gets a real love lesson when Eliza's abducted.

Humor tinged with passion heats up the pages of this delightful Pygmalion story that simply sizzles. Warren moves into the spotlight with a tale that's steamy and emotionally satisfying. This is one author on the verge of stardom. SENSUAL (Jun., 380 pp., $6.99)
