After years spent in Egypt, Marcus Longfellow, the Earl of Rann, abides by his sister's pleading and returns to England. On his arrival, he is devastated to learn of her unexpected demise. The only person who can help him make sense of this is her friend, lingerie designer Miss Mary Marsh.

As Marcus and Mary search for a reason behind the death, they slowly fall in love. Though of a good family, Mary harbors a secret from her past and is only too aware of the class distinction.

A spin-off from Someone Irresistible, WHEN IT'S PERFECT is an emotional and poignant romance, with a humdinger of a sensual love scene revolving around corsets. Readers will really enjoy this enticing novel. SENSUAL (Nov., 384 pp., $5.99)
