From pickpocket to heiress…to bride?

Pickpocket Topaze Benoite trembles in fear as she stands in front of the man who has just caught her in the act. His cold blue eyes promise retribution, but he has something more dangerous in mind than a French prison—he wants her to impersonate the missing heiress Veronique de Chalotais.

Through weeks of rigorous training that transform Topaze from a street urchin to a refined noblewoman, she finds herself drawn to Lucien, thrilled by his seductive presence, his touch, his devil’s smile.

But his desire for revenge against his family seems to color his every mood, even when their mutual desire ripens into passion. Is he interested in using her only when it’s convenient, then disposing of her when he has achieved his goals? Or will their love endure long past summer’s end?

Money makes the world go ’round, but love makes life worth living.

France, 1700

Forced into spying to save her father from debtor’s prison, Marie-Rouge runs away from her lecherous suitor at the glittering court of Versailles, and finds refuge in the simple cottage of a country miller, Pierre—a strong, seductive man who sets her heart to racing wildly.

Her stolen interlude, filled with laughter and warmth, ripens into intoxicating love. Pierre is everything she has ever wanted in a man—passionate, devoted, matching her desire with his own. But her need to save her father from his overwhelming debt means she can never have a future with her beloved Pierre.

The lies she has been forced to tell create a gulf between her and Pierre that seems all but impossible to bridge. And with mysterious suitors and a forced marriage in the offing, will learning the truth be enough to save their love?

From the corruption of Boss Tweed’s New York to the Paris of the Impressionists, two couples fight to fulfill their greatest dreams and desires.

Willough, a well-bred child of wealth, yearns to take her place at the head of her father’s iron empire in the wilderness of the Adirondacks. Accustomed to polished city men, she finds herself drawn to the raw masculinity of Nat, her father’s foreman. Can she leave behind the trappings of city life and learn to embrace the rough country and rough man she is destined to love?

Marcy was born in the mountains, attached to the High Peaks, and yet she yearns to leave and see the world. Drew, Willough’s artist brother, has rejected his father’s business and thrown himself into painting. Together they travel the world, but is love enough to see them through the hard times?

This Retro Romance reprint was originally published in October 1986 by Warner Books.
