As the granddaughter of a highly placed French diplomat, Gabrielle de Brienne was a valuable political pawn. She was also the same Gabrielle who as a child had inadvertently taken from Cam Colbourne, Duke of Dyson, the two people he loved best in the world. The handsome nobleman had vowed to make her pay for his suffering, and now the perfect opportunity presented itself. He would abduct this eighteen-year-old hoyden – with the looks of an angel and the manners of a ragamuffin – and hold her prisoner in his Cornwall castle in order to manipulate her traitorous grandfather. For years he had dreamed of having her at his mercy, and now nothing less than her complete surrender would satisfy him.
The dazzling talent of Elizabeth Thornton will make the cash registers ring like church bells in August with this intensely passionate romance of an English duke and a beautiful French termagant. This is Thornton’s best work to date. Beautifully integrating dramatic historical events into a superbly developed plot, Ms. Thornton gifts us with a simply splendid love story, one that epitomizes the very best in romance. Don’t miss it! (Romantic Times)
