Her classic novel, The Secret Pearl, is one of the New York Times bestselling author’s finest–a tale of temptation and seduction, of guarded hearts and raw emotion…and of a love so powerful it will take your breath away….

But then Fleur accepts a position as governess to a young girl…and is stunned to discover that her midnight lover is a powerful nobleman.
