Synopsis

A consuming passion turns dangerous in this lush and lyrical novel set in Buenos Aires.

The more you love, the more you stand to lose….

Tessa’s head over heels for Lucien, the son of a French diplomat. Sexy, artistic, and daring, he brings out a completely new side of her. With him, Tessa feels beautiful and exotic. So when Tessa’s strict father forbids her to see Lucien, she’s determined to keep their relationship a secret.

But as Tessa gets caught up in Lucien, he becomes increasingly volatile. What she once found alluring about him now feels alarming. Tessa must figure out how far she’ll go for Lucien before she risks losing not just him, but everything she loves.

The love scenes... are steamy, and the narrative... is often rich and sensuous, but neither of these things can make up for the novel’s shortcomings.
