Pasha Duras can't believe the sight before him. A man with an ax buried in his body and a beautiful blond standing naked over the corpse. Trixi is relieved when Pasha discovers her; she is now free from captivity after a murderer kills the man who kept her prisoner. She has had nothing but bad luck with men and now wants nothing more than to return to her son in England. Her reason for initially coming to Paris was to attempt to claim her son's inheritance from his father's family, who refuse to acknowledge Chris is the legitimate heir to the Clouard family inheritance. Nothing short of murder will stop Jerome Clouard from preventing Chris from inheriting, not even the cost of a hired killer. Pasha is swept away by this beautiful woman and finds himself escorting her back to England and showering her and Chris with gifts, which she is reluctant to accept. Passionate flames ignite almost immediately between the two and Pasha finds himself offering his assistance should she ever need his protection. Upon his return to Paris, Pasha is drawn into the war in the effort to help Greece fight the Turks. Once again the Clouards come into Trixi's life and flush her and Chris from England. Reluctantly she flees to Paris in search of Pasha's help only to find out that he's involved in the war. Realizing that they aren't safe in Paris without Pasha she and Chris head for Greece and now become pawns for Pasha's enemy. An intricately woven, suspenseful plot that keeps you entranced! This story is loaded with plenty of hot, steamy, passionate and very vivid love scenes...pure animal attraction!

Interesting & different story line.
WOW, this book was a suprise. I really enjoyed this book. I liked how Susan Johnson put a single mother in her book. Trixi meets Pasha (not my fav name)in a murder scene, they have good chemistry. To me, Trixi was not a whiny woman in this book. She lusts after Pasha and is not afraid to admit it. Pasha is the perfect man for her and he's also a man that knows that he wants. The story flowed very well from the beginning until the end. I ordered more Susan Johnson books.
Author of a dozen national bestsellers, award-winner Susan Johnson beguiles once more with this breathtaking novel, a blend of scandalous adventure, sensual love, and more than just... A Touch of Sin.
Beatrix Grosvenor couldn't have been caught in a more compromising position: locked in a Parisian apartment with the body of a murdered man. She could only hope that the charismatic stranger who found her would believe her story of abduction and assassination, and free her to return to her young son in England.
But Pasha Duras was not about to let her escape so easily. The renowned libertine didn't believe Trixi's fanciful tale, but there was no denying the temptation of her beauty. He would accompany her home, on a sensual journey that would begin with the most tantalizing of seductions--and end with a dangerous discovery.
Trixi's enemies were real. Her child was at their mercy... and Pasha's newly awakened heart may prove to be his undoing.
