A DARING GAME
Genevieve Latour grinned as she planned her revenge on Dominic Delacrox. The handsome, unscrupulous privateer had thought to compromise her older sister's reputation and blackmail their powerful father into helping him run the British blockade. Her tawny eyes gleamed as she imagined the arrogant Delacroix's surprise when his carefully arranged tryst attracted the wrong Mademoiselle Latour. She had no fears for her own reputation -- she had no wealthy suitor to placate. Besides, she knew well how little charm her slender body held for Delacroix. He preferred his women desirable and willing ... and she was neither!
A TEMPTING PRIZE
Dominic Delacrox could barely contain his fury. He'd schemed for weeks to force Victor Latour to play his part in this damned war, and now this audacious, stubborn child had ruined everything! His icy blue gaze took in her flashing tiger's eyes, her silken, silver-gold hair, her translucent, flawless skin, and all at once his anger turned to fascination. She was no child, after all. Perhaps it was time she learned the consequences of a midnight assignation with a notorious scoundrel. And he would teach it all -- the heated kisses, the soft caresses, and the tender temptations that would bring magic to her Reckless Seduction.
