The Ascension Trilogy, Book 3: Prince Charming
Reforming the Royal Rakehell
Destiny casts its hand one perfect moonlit night when Ascension’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…
