"There is star quality in this writer!" raves the Romantic Times about gifted author Gaelen Foley. Her love stories are filled with glorious settings, stunning characters, and unforgettable passion.

Destiny casts its hand one perfect moonlit night when Ascencion''s most elusive highwayman, the Masked Rider, chooses the wrong coach to rob.  For inside is Rafael, the prince of the kingdom, renowned for his hot-blooded pursuits of women and other decadent pleasures. The failed raid leaves the equally notorious Masked Rider wounded and facing a hangman''s noose. Then Rafe realizes his captive criminal is Lady Daniela Chiaramonte, a defiant beauty who torments him, awakening his senses and his heart as no woman has before.

Dani can only wonder if she''s been delivered to heaven or hell once she agrees to marry the most desirable man in the Mediterranean--until forces of treachery threaten to destroy their tenuous alliance and bring down the throne itself. . . .

Read from the Book

Ascencion, 1816 The greatest lover of all time was at it again, smoothly seducing the artless country girl Zerlina, as Mozart''s famed duet "La ci darem la mano" filled the sumptuous theater with a graceful spire of twining voices, tenor and soprano making love to each other in exquisite song. No one was paying attention. The wink of opera glasses and the rustling whispers betrayed that the glittering audience''s fascination was fixed, not on the stage, but on the first and finest theater box on the mezzanine, stage right, perched over the orchestra. Cloyingly sculpted with cupids and urns and draped plasterwork ribbons, the box was permanently reserved for royalty. He sat at the carved marble rail, half in shadow, unmoving, his suntanned face expressionless. Light from the stage gleamed on the signet ring on his finger, played over the patrician angles of his face, and gilded his long dark-gold hair, which was swept back in a queue. The audience watched with bated breath as he moved for the first time since the performance had begun. Slowly he reached into the pocket of his extravagant waistcoat, took a peppermint from a flat metal tin, and placed it in his mouth. Ladies watched him suck the candy and blushed, fluttering their fans. I am so bored , he thought, his eyes glazing over. So, so very bored .

From Our Editors

Lady Daniela Chiaramonte enjoys all of the privileges money provides. After all, she is the beautiful daughter of a duke, and she spends her days running the family estate. The fact that she is wealthy makes her night job all the more curious. As the Masked Rider, Lady Daniela robs from the rich to feed the poor. Although she knows she is taking chances, she is sure she will never be caught. In Prince Charming, Lady Daniela gets more than she bargains for when she tries to steal from the castle of Prince Rafael de Fiore.
