USA today bestselling author Julianne MacLean’s Regency-era trilogy of royal romance comes to a thrilling, breathtaking conclusion…
Marriage is more than she ever bargained for.
Prince Nicholas of Petersbourg is an infamous ladies’ man, but even he doesn’t expect a flirtation at a masquerade ball to turn into abduction. Especially with a jailor as temptingly beautiful as the young woman on the other side of the locked door.
Veronique Montagne was desperate when she agreed to kidnap a prince to settle her profligate father’s gambling debts, and she certainly didn’t imagine that her prisoner might sweet-talk her into helping him escape. Saving her home is now the least of her troubles, especially when the attraction simmering between her and the angry prince blazes into true passion. To save them both from scandal, Nicholas proposes a convenient marriage, but when a vengeful plot threatens to tear them apart, he just might discover that Veronique’s love is what he desires most of all.
“Julianne MacLean’s writing is smart, thrilling, and sizzles with sensuality.” — Elizabeth Hoyt
