Marie-Laure Vernet couldn't believe the arrogance of Joseph Dupin, the viscomte d'Auvers-Raimond. She saved his life; at least he could remember her name! Even though Joseph shows no sign of recognizing his family's new scullery maid, he remembers "Marianne" from when she was working in her father's bookshop, and Joseph, in the guise of a wounded book smuggler, showed up at her door one night only to disappear the next morning. When his lecherous father shows an interest in Marie-Laure, Joseph pretends to have already taken her as his mistress and the two enjoy innocent nights passionately discussing books and writing. Soon their sweet trysts turn into something much more sensual as the aristocrat and the commoner discover they share more than just an interest in literature. On the eve of the French Revolution, a heroine who loves books and reading vows to uncover an elegant aristocrat's true story, in Rosenthal's richly sensual, intimately detailed love story, one that will enchant readers with its lush prose, fascinating historical setting, and beautifully nuanced characters.

"She taps into the stuff of female fantasies: an empowered heroine to bring men to their knees and a handsome. sexy, strong, yet sensitive hero. Rosenthal has a glittering future in the genre."
