The award-winning, bestselling author of Pure Sin and Outlaw entices us once more into a world of sensual fantasy.
Countess Angela de Grae seemed to have everything a woman could want: wealth, position, and an exquisite beauty that had once bewitched even the Prince of Wales. But from the moment the dashing American playboy and adventurer Kit Braddock laid eyes on the legendary Countess Angel, he knew she was unlike any of the other rich, jaded blue bloods he’d ever met. For beneath the polish and glitter of her privileged life, he glimpsed a courageous woman tormented by a secret heartache.
Determined to uncover the real Angela de Grae, what Kit found was a passionate soul mate trapped in a dangerous situation by a desperate man. And in one moment of reckless, stolen pleasure, Kit would pledge his very life to rescue her and give her the one thing she’d forbidden herself: the ecstasy of true love.
From the majestic plains of Montana to the glittering ballrooms and bedchambers of 1890s Paris comes a sensual story of smoldering passion, and a love destined to break every rule . . .
He was raised in gilded lap of luxury—Etienne Martel, the magnificently virile Duc de Vec, notorious rake, expert sportsman—and the most celebrated lover in all of Paris. But from the moment he saw the incomparable Daisy Black, he knew he would never desire another.
She was born half a world away—Daisy Black, a proud Montana beauty, exotic and untamed—and determined to fight for the rights of women in a land ruled by men. Yet the instant she felt the heat of Vec’s jungle-green gaze, she knew she was lost. Like some haunting promise of paradise he drew her in, fanning the flames of her desire until all she could think of was lying in his arms.
Now, caught up in a dance as old as time, Etienne and Daisy have eyes only for each other. But soon, they will find their happiness threatened by a society rocked by their scandalous love by the woman Etienne calls wife.
Empress Jordan had fled to the Montana wilderness to escape a cruel injustice, only to find herself forced to desperate means to feed her brothers and sisters. Once she agreed to sell her most precious possession to the highest bidder, she feared she’d made a terrible mistake—even as she found herself hoping it was the tall, dark, chiseled stranger who had taken her dare and claimed her.
He was every woman’s secret desire.
From the moment he saw the emerald-eyed beauty, Trey Braddock-Black knew he must have her, no matter what the cost. Rich as sin and handsomer than the devil, the half-Absarokee rogue had no intention of settling down with one woman. But once seduced by her innocent sensuality, intoxicated by the sweet enchantress who was his for three reckless weeks, he knew he could never give her up.
For the first time in her life she was facing a man she couldn’t handle. He knew the white man’s ways—and every woman’s secrets. . . .
Boston heiress Blaze Braddock, known more for her daring than her discretion, had insisted on trying to persuade the mysterious Absarokee Indian to sell his land claim to her father. But the moment she felt the impact of his tall, rangy body, the heat of his seductive dark eyes, and the drugging warmth that stole through her sense at his skilled touch, she knew she’d been more than reckless to put herself in his hands.
Jon Hazard Black was no savage barbarian but the Harvard-educated son of an Absarokee chief. He knew the value of his land; the gold that ran beneath it would be the salvation of his people. And not even this dangerously tempting beauty could convince him to sell. Held captive by a man who was her sworn enemy, Blaze was swept up in a storm of passions she had never imagined—possessed by a man who vowed he would keep forever what was his. . . .
