Amour (Passion and Glory #1)
She steals his heart with a kiss. . .
For Sérolène, Vicomtesse de La Bouhaire, a sheltered life on her uncle's plantation in St. Domingue, the jewel of the French colonies, is changed forever when she finds a handsome, elusive stranger in her uncle's library. Verbal sparks fly with the intruder who she finds boorish and purposefully rude. But the Vicomtesse is shocked and embarrassed to discover the man is Nicolas Montferraud, youngest son of the famous Marquis de Blaise and part of the great family that Sérolène's social-climbing aunt wants to secure for her marriageable daughter, Julienne.
Desperate to not make an enemy of Nicolas and spoil things for the cousin she adores, Sérolène tries to make amends with the chevalier, but a teasing dare ends with her first kiss and a promise of more to come.
But will the burning passion of a forbidden love . . .
Nicolas de Montferraud has it all--wealth, an illustrious family name, and dashing good looks. But as the sparks of passion grow into flames, Sérolène learns that Nicolas has been tainted by unproven rumors of African blood on his mother's side. Rumors which caused his family to be exiled from court.
Lead to ruin or glory?
When her secret love is discovered by her family, Sérolène is forbidden to ever see Nicolas again. But she is determined that nothing will keep her from being with Nicolas. No sacrifice is too much for her to bear. Not even death.
