About the Book

Michelle Minoux travels to Madrid to attend a royal wedding hoping her long-time escort, Antoine Lareau, will be inspired to propose. Her flirtation with a handsome Gypsy, who proves to be Luis Augustin Aragon, the heir of a shipping fortune, swiftly turns deadly when Antoine challenges Luis to a duel. The men had bargained for Michelle to wed the winner, and she soon becomes Señora Aragon. She finds the dashing Luis impossible to resist, but a fire sinks his ship and strands them on a deserted island where they must depend upon their wits to survive. With a mortal enemy stalking them, Luis proves to be far more dangerous than the Gypsy lover who won Michelle’s heart.
