When Lori Gordon returns home to find that Blackie, the man her father took in years ago off the streets, has also returned, she can only guess it was her fathers doing. Why else would the man she loves (no, once loved) be living across the hall from her after she told him she never wanted to see him again? Can she work in the same room with him as she designs intimate apparel in an intimate working space?

Sweet, silky, sensualLoris lingerie will surely capture the crowds as her spirit has captured Blackies haunted orphan heart. The successful illustrator pours his guarded heart into his work, drawing what he believes is truea comic book presentation where he is the Gypsy unworthy of, but in love with, the fascinating Princess.

As Blackie illustrates his world for comic fans, the author of this sweet romance illustrates the conflicting passion of Lori and Blackie. As Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard wrote, Love knows nothing of rank or riverbank! It will spark between a queen and the poor vagabond who plays the king. So seems the love of these two: both in their reality and in their comic book personas, however they are drawn. (dl $5.00, dk $4.00)
