Fruit of the Golden Vine
Middle sister Adelina has remained aloof and amused by the string of suitors for her elder sister's hand--and dowry. But when the swaggering Rafael arrives with an equally eye-catching, bold sister of his own, Adelina's pulse stirs at last.
Aware from the first that she has caught the lovely Adelina's interest, Silvana yearns to court her openly, but she and her brother are not what they seem. Moonlit nights in the summer gardens may lead to kisses and whispers of love, but she knows that the lady's heart will be lost forever if the truth is discovered.
From the author of The Diplomat comes a sumptuous story of reckless desire, desperate honor and fearless love.
