And I can tell you honestly that I'm just as excited over the fifth as I was over the first. The Devil's Heart marks my first foray into a South American setting. The story starts in New York, but mostly takes place in Buenos Aires and Mendoza, Argentina.
RT Book Reviews said, "Lots of conflict, hot love scenes and a satisfying ending make this an entertaining read."
A diamond, and a deal with the devil…
Francesca D’Oro was just eighteen when darkly sexy Marcos Navarre swept her up the aisle—then fled before the ink on the marriage licence had dried. Marcos might have given Francesca a jewel for her finger, but he stole another: the Devil’s Heart—a dazzling yellow diamond he believed belonged to his family…
Years later Francesca, no longer so youthfully naïve, is determined to reclaim the precious gem! But she’s forgotten that Marcos lives up to the treasure’s name—and dealing with the devil is always dangerous!
Marcos and Francesca captured my heart and I just couldn't stop until I gave them their happy ending. It wasn't an easy book to write. They both have heartbreaking pasts that affect who they are today. But, as always in a romance novel, everything works out in the end. In fact, my husband was complaining about a movie he watched the other day. It was a foreign film about an arranged marriage (for immigration) that turns to love -- but the heroine dies before the hero can tell her he loves her. Hubby was not happy with this outcome. I told him he should read a romance novel instead. ;)
We don't do that to our characters, thank heavens!
