About the Book

Love so pure as to be a sin - wild, unconditional, rare, - the pursuit of which blocks all else until this destiny is fulfilled.  This is the tale of Anna and Sharif’s three children and their unconscious search for that love so treasured by their parents.  This is a sensuous and difficult search set across Europe and part of Quebec, a search filled with deceit, tears, and passion.

This, then, is the tale of Jasmine, beautiful and wild, who longs for a man as princely as her father.  But when she finds him – ahh.  This is the tale of Jamie, the obedient son, who cares too much and is trapped.  This is the tale of Storm, as wild as the tempest of his conception, who seeks the perfect woman, the one who does not succumb to his charms.  This is a tale of love.

France, the Barbary Coast, Italy, in the early 1700’s were a man’s world.  Performing in Marseille as a dancer, Anna-Marie 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 Naples only to be sold to the gypsies.  Beauty is moonlight and jasmine.  Beauty is a curse.  The saga continues from “Unbreak My Heart”.

About the Author

History, tall ships, travel, and books – all vie for first love with Lucia Bruels.  Retired from an information technology career she enjoys all things French, all things historical, especially if set in the 1700’s.  She became interested in writing while doing family genealogy.  After all, nothing is as intriguing as real life; add a bit of sugar and spice and you have a tantalizing tale.  Love or hate her heroes, they are always alpha males – though they may have wounds to heal.  Her ladies are full of life, ready to love and be loved – and usually not so proper.  Duels, sizzling affairs, tidbits of history, all intertwined for tales you won’t want to put down.
