"Searingly romantic." -- SYLVIA DAY,
#1 New York Times bestselling author.
Inspired by the tale of Cinderella, a steamy historical romance that offers a glass slipper, a dangerous deception, and an impoverished beauty determined to find her handsome prince...and make him pay.
Born into wealth, Sabine Laurent and her twin sister lived a life of luxury, their father's prestigious theater frequented by royalty and aristocracy alike. And Sabine dreamed of her own Prince Charming--the devastatingly handsome Jules de Moutier.
That was before the loss of her sister and her family's fall from grace--a disaster Sabine blames on the Moutier family. Now, with her father's death, she's inherited his sizable debt and the responsibility of caring for his spoiled long-time mistress and her two wastrel daughters. But with the help of Sabine's eccentric friends--the balance of her father's acting troupe--she plans to get very close to her old infatuation, seduce the rake--and make away with a fortune.
Resisting Jules's skillful mouth and tantalizing touch is not as easy as Sabine supposed. And soon she must decide whether her desire for vengeance is greater than her desire for her one and only prince...
Full length HOT historical romance.
DiPasqua's third "Fiery Tale" (after Awakened by a Kiss and The Princess in His Bed) turns the story of Cinderella into a sensual romance set in 1658 France. The death of Sabine Laurent's father, a popular but far from wealthy playwright, leaves the family heavily in debt. Sabine is determined to save her home and find her beloved sister, Isabelle, even if it means stealing from the "Dark Prince" she fell in love with years before. Jules de Moutier, son of a lord framed for trying to overthrow the king, is now a privateer. Disguising herself as a courtesan, Sabine hatches a desperate plot to distract Jules and drug him so she and her family can steal his hard-won fortune only to find her plans at odds with her emotions. DiPasqua deftly balances steamy sex with side plots concerning Isabelle's fate and a devious baron.
I loved this book. So many twists and the ending was wonderful. Lots of erotic scenes so if you don’t like erotic scenes this is not for you. Ready to read the next one.
