Elina Vannier’s life could not get much worse. Her father was missing. Her brother, dead. And the most attractive man she had ever met thought she was a lying cheat. And soon she discovered in jasmine-scented New Orleans that her whole past might be a lie.
Convinced that Elina wanted to destroy his family’s reputation, Rene Bonnange lured the young girl to his lush plantation to buy her silence. But as the languid days passed, he found himself longing for the deceitful beauty. No matter what the cost, Rene would uncover the truth about Elina—and together they would share a temptuous ecstasy that would forever change their lives.
