One of my top favorites from Coulter. This book was classic. I bought it in 1985, reread over the years because The story and writing was so well done here.
This book comes after "Devil's Embrace" and is about their son and daughter. The in print version has been RE-WRITTEN.
Golden-haired hellion Arabella goes to Naples, Italy to solve the mystery of her father's missing ships and cargo. But soon she discovers that the man behind the thievery is an enemy from her father's past-a man she shouldn't love, but can't resist.
I couldn't lay it down. Wanted to read it until I finished.
The devil's daughter is Arabella Welles, daughter of Anthony Welles, Earl of Clare, of the book Devil's Embrace. Independent and strong-willed as her father, she is a blonde-haired hellion with eyes as black as midnight revels. When Arabella goes adventuring to Naples, Italy to solve the mystery of her father's missing ships and cargoes, she discovers that the person behind this thievery is an enemy from her father's past who packs Arabella off to a harem in North Africa.
Arabella finds the harem a frightening yet fascinating place, a golden prison from which there is little chance of escape. Her master is Kamal, the Bey of Oran, a man who must be her enemy but who is unlike any man she has ever known. And Kamal suddenly finds himself faced with a woman willing to fight him to the death-a woman who both bewitches and infuriates him.

Very good and suspenseful
In Devils Embrace, my very first historical romance we meet two characters who are still very real to me. Cassandra Broughton and Anthony Welles. For beautiful Cassie, the seething city of Genoa seems a world away from the 18th century estate where she was raised. It is here that she meeets Lord Anthony Welles, the brutally handsome aristocrat who swears that he will win Cassie's heart even as he conqueres her body.
This is a historical romance I think everyone will enjoy.
My book has a different cover
