***Formerly titled Resisting Romeo
A second chance at happiness...
Blue blood flows through actress Claudine Bellerose's veins, but a noble birth hasn't protected her from a life of hardships. Driven from home by French revolutionaries when she was an infant and orphaned in a strange land, Claudine was forced to make impossible choices to survive. An aspiring playwright and gifted performer, Claudine is determined to rebuild her life, and the small London playhouse where she is surrounded by friends and about to premiere her first production makes the perfect setting—until she learns the theatre is being sold out from under the manager.
A dream he never hoped to realize...
When gentleman landowner Russell Hawke inherits a failing playhouse, the only reasonable action is to sell the property to the highest bidder. However, after the intriguing Claudine ambushes him at the Clarendon Hotel and demands he allow the manager to purchase the Drayton, Russell is enticed into reconsidering the theatre's future. Soon he finds himself portraying the role of leading man opposite the lovely Claudine, but can he become her Romeo after the curtains close?
