The latest installment in the sizzling Fontaines series by USA Todaybestselling author Ember Casey.
When Edie Marshall meets a mysterious—and drop-dead gorgeous—man in the woods just outside her small town, she has no idea who he is or where he's come from.
She has no idea why she has such an instant, intense connection with this dangerous-looking man—with his arms full of tattoos and his deep, velvety voice.
She has no idea why she trusts him enough to tell him things she's never told anyone else.
And she definitely has no idea that their brief, passionate encounter will lead to her getting pregnant.
It's only then that she learns her "mystery man" from the woods is actually Rafe Fontaine—celebrity, Hollywood royalty, and notorious player (with an arrest record as long as her arm). And despite their intense connection, she discovers he might have just as many secrets as she does.
Can she trust her heart—and her baby—to Hollywood's wildest bad boy?
Meet the Fontaines: Hollywood royalty. L.A.'s most notorious bad boys. Permanent stars of the tabloids. And the wickedest, most devilish lovers around...

As her mother suggested soon before her death, Helga goes for help to her estranged Aunt Millicent, a glamorous actress from the notorious Gaiety Theatre – and her life changes forever.

The French Revolution comes to vivid life as the USA Today–bestselling author’s Devereux Trilogy continues. “A joy to read!” (RT Book Reviews). As the newly appointed commissioner, Philippe Duhet has the power of life and death over the local French aristocracy. In return for her family’s safe passage out of the country, the breathtakingly lovely Claire Devereux agrees to be his mistress. She is to live in his luxurious quarters, to be seen with him about town, and to accommodate his desires whenever he wishes. Claire surrendered her body to Duhet, but swore he’d never break her spirit. What she didn’t know was that the real Duhet had been abducted, and his American twin brother, Adam Dillon, was installed in his place as a spy.
