A SCARLET ROSE HAD BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER
In the still, hot, sweet-scented night, Grey Verreaux entered a shadowy room, expecting to enjoy the lush charms of his intended bride. Like the fragrant petals of the flower that marked her door, passion unfurled as he stroked a woman's willing body. But no sooner had her cries of ecstasy subsided than he learned his terrible mistake: it was his fiancee's young cousin Victoria he held in his arms. Seven years later, Victoria had blossomed into a stunningly beautiful woman, married to a man she didn't love. Willful and headstrong, she had sworn no man would be her master, until fate brought her back into Grey's arms.
