SHE KNOWS HIS SECRET... For Marie-Laure Vernet, serving as a scullery maid to a bored, aristocratic family isn't without its dangers. Trying to avoid the unwelcome predations of the men and their guests is one. Keeping the china in one piece is another - especially when she finds herself serving Viscomte Joseph d'Auvers-Raimond. Only Marie-Laure knows that Joseph is also a smuggler of forbidden books who'd once fallen ill in her late father's bookshop. That meeting led to an innocent flirtation, fueled by a shared passion for books and ideas, but it awakened desires that changed Marie-Laure forever.
HE SENSES HER DESIRE... Joseph hasn't forgotten the encounter either. His papers are littered with drafts of an erotic story about a girl who bears a distinct resemblance to the servant spilling his tea. While pleasuring the jaded women of the aristocracy, he'd pictured this girl with the coppery hair and the ink-stained fingers who could indulge both his intellect and his most feverish desires. Now, the only way to save her from becoming his family's plaything is to seduce her first, and the lady seems extremely willing to comply...
ALL THEY CAN TRUST IS THEIR PASSION In the shadow of the French Revolution, two lovers embark on a seduction that plunges them into the heart of the aristocracy's most vindictive, carnal games, where white-hot desire is exceeded only by deception, betrayal - and murder...
