From pickpocket to heiress…to bride?

Pickpocket Topaze Benoite trembles in fear as she stands in front of the man who has just caught her in the act. His cold blue eyes promise retribution, but he has something more dangerous in mind than a French prison-he wants her to impersonate the missing heiress Veronique de Chalotais.

Through weeks of rigorous training that transform Topaze from a street urchin to a refined noblewoman, she finds herself drawn to Lucien, thrilled by his seductive presence, his touch, his devil’s smile.

But his desire for revenge against his family seems to color his every mood, even when their mutual desire ripens into passion. Is he interested in using her only when it’s convenient, then disposing of her when he has achieved his goals? Or will their love endure long past summer’s end?

This Retro Romance reprint was originally published in August, 1989 by Warner Books.
