Miss Meredith Chilton-Grizedale needs the wedding between Philip Whitmore, Viscount Greybourne, and Lady Sarah to be the marriage of the season. This will secure her reputation as the matchmaker of Mayfair. But when the bride cries off because the groom claims to be cursed, Meredith's in trouble.

Adventurer Philip would rather face scorpions, sandstorms or snakes in his hunt for artifacts than marry when he knows the ancient curse will kill his bride.

Meredith is determined they will find a way to break the curse and restore her reputation, even if Philip falls in love with her and her own life is at risk.

There's humor, pathos, passion, danger and some Indiana Jonesstyle detective work all rolled into one highly entertaining, perfectly satisfying, fast-paced read. You'll savor every moment of this delightful romance. SENSUAL (Oct., 384 pp., $6.99)
