THEY PLAYED FOR HIGH STAKES . . .
. . . PASSION, HONOR, AND REVENGE . . .
Damien, Lord Falon, made his ruthless proposal to Alexa Garrick at the gaming table where he'd cheated the exquisite young heiress out of a fortune---one night with him would discharge her debt. Yet, as he claimed his prize, the handsome earl fought a craving for more than Alexa's body...and when a twist of fate turned seduction into matrimony, rapture and rage warred within him. How could he love the woman whose flirtations had destroyed his brother?
Alexa knew of Damien's French blood, his scandalous liaisons, and the whispers that branded him a smuggler. Though she was playing with fire, the dark devilish earl's hungry embrace plucked at her heartstrings with a haunting song of desire. But was Damien spinning a web of deceit and treason, as he brought her to his surfswept castle?
