New York Times bestselling author and Reviewers' Choice AwardÂ
winner Laurie McBain has sold more than 11 million copies of her
romances around the world with lush, epic storytelling that has
made her a favorite among generations of readers.
She has sworn never to love.
To many, she has a perfect life-freedom to travel the world,
expensive gifts from wealthy men. But consummate actress though she
is, Mara Flynn can never make herself believe the passion is real.
One more job. That's all she needs to ensure her family's financial
future. And California is just teeming with gold. There, her daring
impersonation will fool everyone...except one man.
He has sworn never to forgive.
Mara didn't plan for Nicholas Chantale, though. He has hunted
her from the steamy streets of New Orleans all the way to the
blinding brilliance of California gold country, only to have his
dreams of vengeance crushed when he meets her in the flesh. For
though he was sworn to kill her, she was the love he would die
