RESCUED BY A ROGUE . . .
Orphaned at seventeen, Cajun beauty Angelique Fremont is left to the
tender mercies of her profligate uncle Giles in antebellum New Orleans.
Then Giles cruelly betrays his niece, offering her on the auction block
to his depraved poker companions! Only the intervention of Jean Pierre
Delacroix, notorious rogue turned Cupid, saves innocent Angelique from a
fate worse than death. Yet Jean Pierre knows he can never make this
untouched angel a proper husband, so he engineers a marriage of
convenience for Angelique with his wealthy, enigmatic cousin Roland.
TO BECOME A PLANTER’S BRIDE
Angelique is stunned to find herself forced into marriage to
handsome, formidable Roland Delacroix. All too soon she is Roland’s
bride and mistress of Belle Elise Plantation. Angelique’s mysterious
bridegroom both allures and unsettles her, and she struggles between her
pride and her budding desire for him. Why does her masterful husband
seem to want her one moment, then shun her the next? Why is he so
jealous, so determined to control her every move? What are the terrible
hurts, ghosts, and betrayals haunting Roland, painful secrets he
withholds from her even as their passion ignites? Barely past girlhood,
Angelique must confront a woman’s dilemma and fight for Roland and their
marriage. For only through overcoming Roland’s demons can the
tempestuous couple find true passion, love, and happiness together.
