She vows to protect her heart…until love burns away her resistance.

Régine Laflamme rules as the Queen of Fire, the Paris demimonde’s most notorious and accomplished courtesan. Wealthy men shower her with riches and vie to become her next conquest. Respectable women shun her. Other courtesans envy her.

No one knows she was once an innocent young governess, ruined and turned out by a cruel lord. And now, years later, she spies her seducer’s son—a man who never answered her frantic pleas for help.

Darius, Earl of Clarridge, has never stopped searching for the woman who haunts him. He doesn’t expect her to believe that her letters never reached him. No, he will regain her trust in a way she understands—by promising to give her more pleasure than she’s ever known.

In spite of her misgivings, Régine is intrigued and takes Darius up on his boast. To her surprise, he conquers not only her body, but captures her very heart.

Yet beyond the haven of her boudoir, two men scheme to possess her for their own. When one of them kidnaps and enslaves her, she clings desperately to a new hope—that this time Darius will find her before it’s too late.

About Sandrine O'Shea

When Sandrine O'Shea is not writing or reading romances and mysteries, she enjoys beading, wandering through art galleries and craft shows, and is the go-to gal when an occasion demands fattening and delicious desserts. A typical New Englander, she wishes for winter when the summer is too hot and oppressively humid, and yearns for summer when the winter is too cold and snowy, though autumn is always just right. She and her husband share their home with their blabbermouth cat, Mrs. Grumbles. The Courtesan's Bed is her seventeenth published title.
