Colonel Devon Burke travels to Paris in search of the man he owed his life to - to repay his debt. What he found was Julie, a beautiful young lady who assisted her father in his gaming hell before the terrible incident.
The terrible incident? Her father knew the particulars of underhanded dealings by high ranking French officials - and they wanted him silenced through any means necessary. To protect his daughter from their minions, he made the ultimate sacrifice -- you'll have to get the book to find out what though.
When Devon arrives in war-torn Paris he finds himself in the middle of intrigue - one that can mean the life or death of him and Julie. Through a series of events they finally end up back in England, and of course along the way discover their great love for each other.
This is a very good story - the sequel to The Heart's Desire.
Julie's father left England, his good name in tatters. He brought his daughter up in his gaming hall, never telling her of his secret life as a spy for England. But now his enemies know and they're coming after Julie to see what she knows.
Devon Burke is in France looking for his missing friend, the Duke of Avon. What he finds is Julie. Together this unlikey pair set out to find his friend, and end up falling in love. But Julie knows, even if Devon doesn't, that society won't allow her to be his wife, but maybe, maybe he'll take her as his mistress?
Wilson pens a wonderful, page-turning story of love...two hearts that wager against the odds and win!
