*Formerly titled NATALYA*

WINNER of the K.I.S.S. HERO AWARD from ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE

~ 1814: Grey St. James, Viscount Altburne, has escaped from Napoleon's prison on the rocky isle of Mont St. Michel. Desperate and dangerous, he is a far cry from the rakish nobleman who broke hearts in Regency London.

In her uncle Nicholai's French chateau, Natalya Beauvisage is writing a novel. At 26, she is beautiful but hardly marriageable, for she is devoted to being an author. However, when a potently attractive stranger appears to hold her at knifepoint, Natalya thrills to a flesh-and-blood man. 

Grey must escape from France and Natalya longs to return to America, so they form an unlikely alliance, traveling together in disguise. Natalya is caught up in a passionate fantasy that surpasses any she could imagine, but Grey's heart is imprisoned by dark secrets that must be uncovered before he can love again...
