France, the Barbary Coast, Italy, in the early 1700’s was a man’s world. A daughter of French nobility, a bored Anna-Marie agrees to fill in for a friend, performing in Marseille as an eastern dancer. She forces herself upon the man of her dreams but finds true love and erotic passion with a Prince of another world. Kidnapped from his arms, she escapes in the crowded seaport of Naples.
Desperate to elude her pursuers, she becomes a model for an Italian Duke, a painter of erotic art. Fulfilling her part of the bargain, she is promised an escort home. She is, instead, sold to a band of gypsies. Beauty is moonlight and jasmine. Beauty is a curse. The saga continues from Unbreak My Heart.
