THE DEVIL'S PRIZE
The notorious rake Damien, Lord Falcon, knew the minute Alexa Garrick walked into the room that the moment to avenge his brother's death was at hand. By inviting Alexa into a game of chance, one she cannot win, he hopes to seduce the heiress out of a fortune and into his bed. Instead, the rogue gets caught in his own trap.
Though Alexa knows Damien is a dangerous man-branded a smuggler or worse-she cannot resist the temptations he offers. When circumstances force them to wed, Alexa vows to make it a happy union. However, as soon as she discovers Damien's secret, Alexa plunges them into a disastrous situation.
From the London offices of the military to the shores of Britain and the glittering halls of Napoleon's France, Alexa and Damien must find a way out of the deadly games of treachery and betrayal being played out around them. Together they must find a way to build a deep and lasting love from the ashes of a dark hate.
