18th Century Italy
One tiny spark took away all the things Isabella Di’Lorini held dear and precious, leaving her orphaned and homeless at eighteen. Fate and circumstances lead her to Turin, Italy where she is saved from living in those dark, bleak back alleys by a stranger’s kindness. After becoming the dressmaker to a group of courtesans, she sees the world from a new perspective and makes a decision that will forever change her life.
Charles Emmanuel, the heir apparent and Prince of Piedmont was despised by his father. Never meant to be prince or king, Charles’ life and destiny were changed after the death of his older and much favored brother.
Call it fate or destiny. Charles and Isabella are brought together.
Just as one tiny spark destroyed her life, a spark of desire and passion changes it again.
She was more than his courtesan; she was the love of his life. A love story that spanned decades and defied all the odds. But the hatred of one woman – Charles’ wife and queen – threatens to destroy what they have.
He will do anything he can to keep Isabella safe; including setting her free.
