Three nights of passion . . .
With a turn of the cards, her father is ruined -- and innocent Aveline Stoddard is lost. To honor the gambling debt, she agrees to submit for three nights to Lucien DuFeron's every desire, three nights of blistering sensuality and unparalleled ecstasy in the arms of the dashing, dark rogue they call "Lucifer." But the time passes all too quickly…and when the debt is paid, the handsome devil vanishes.An eternity of desire
Treachery delivered Lucien into the hands of evil brigands. Now five years after his abduction and imprisonment he has returned to London, searching for the enemy responsible -- and finding instead the beauty who still haunts his dreams. Aveline has grown more alluring since those unforgettable nights when she melted beneath his touch. Yet Lucien's need for vengeance must be satisfied. If the trail leads to someone close to Aveline, will it destroy forever the one love powerful enough to free his tormented heart?
So much for the flu!
After being in bed over a week with the flu, I started looking for new books to read and was glad to have found this. I could not put it down. I'm definitely reading her other books. Loved it!
I'm reading all her stories one by one...
I'm what you would call a 'closet romantic' and since I don't have lots of time to read, I am very selective of what I do read. I loved that iTunes let me sample the books, it gave me a window into the quality of writing of Ms. Mullins. I was impressed from the first. Her stories are about the people, not what they wore, where they were or even WHO they were. Just good, well thought out characters that meet in realistic settings and respond to their experiences in normal ways. It is easy to see that she enjoys writing, telling a story - it's not Milton's Paradise Lost, but thus far ALL of the stories I've read are good, light, 'happy ending' reads.
