My fifth book from Harlequin Presents hits the shelves tomorrow! I'm so excited to be able to share this story with you. First, a little bit about the book:
A diamond, and a deal with the devil…
Francesca D’Oro was just eighteen when darkly sexy Marcos Navarre swept her up the aisle—then fled before the ink on the marriage licence had dried. Marcos might have given Francesca a jewel for her finger, but he stole another: the Devil’s Heart—a dazzling yellow diamond he believed belonged to his family…
Years later Francesca, no longer so youthfully naïve, is determined to reclaim the precious gem! But she’s forgotten that Marcos lives up to the treasure’s name—and dealing with the devil is always dangerous!
While there is indeed a rare diamond at the heart of this story, it's the other treasures that are truly priceless. Marcos Navarre is a scarred man, both literally and figuratively. He had a hard childhood on the streets of Buenos Aires, and then an even harder time once he got tangled up with a guerrilla army as a young man.
But he's escaped that life and built himself into something good and decent. What he lacks, however, is the ability to love.
Or so he thinks.
Enter Francesca d'Oro, a woman he knew when she was younger and more naive. Francesca has demons of her own to fight. Her life is not the privileged existence it once was, and the blind love she'd once felt for Marcos is now gone.
In fact, she hates Marcos for what he did to her. And she's determined to get even with him.
But of course nothing is as it seems, and plans go awry.
Marcos and Francesca learn they have the key to treasures beyond price if they can just get past all the pain and hurt of their pasts and learn to forge a life together. It's not an easy ride, but I do hope it's an unforgettable one.
