Book 2 - Royal series
Mara Had a Desperate Plan of Deception That Would Ignite into Royal Passion
Amid the color and music of a gypsy camp in the foothills of France, Mara Delacroix of Louisiana and Roderic, Prince of Ruthenia, met for the first time. She was the daughter of Andre Delacroix, who had lost his great love, Angeline, to Roderic's father in a daring gamble.
Now Mara was involved in a deception of her own. Visiting France with her grandmother — who had gotten them into debt to the ruthless Nicholas de Landes — Mara had to seduce Roderic (for reasons de Landes would not explain) or see her dear grandmother stiffer.
Mara wanted only to use Roderic in a game of intrigue. Roderic was well aware of her beauty and charm but didn't want to be anyone's fool. How could they know that passion would explode between them?
Here is a glittering adventure set against the excitement of 19th-century France that is total enchantment, sensual delight, and, of course, pure Jennifer Blake.
