UNDONE—a Rapunzel retelling that is as emotion as it is spicy. (FIERY TALES SERIES, Historical Romance)

Devastatingly handsome, Simon Boulenger is a man who’s had humble beginnings, but big dreams. He’s now the commander of a fleet of privateer ships for his nation, and he has become vastly successful at it.

Not to mention wealthy.

All the while, he’s hoped that his achievements would earn him recognition from the Crown, and allow him to be ennobled and made an officer in the King’s official navy.

But things are complicated for Simon.

And he’s in a lot of danger. Not from enemy ships. But from powerful members at court. Enter in a beautiful woman with a dark secret, and Simon’s world will never be the same again.

From the first moment I saw you, you took my breath away—literally. Not just by knocking me to the ground. (You do have a way of making quite a first impression.) But by those captivating eyes. One look and I was undone. I knew I had to know everything about you. I knew I had to have you.

The attraction between us was intense and untamable from the start. The passion is mind-melting. You alone can drive me to distraction—at the worst possible time. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I wouldn’t trade a moment of our time together. You slipped past my defenses. You drew the bitterness out of my life. You alone bring out the best in me.

Winning your trust and your heart is the greatest achievement of my life.

There are many things I love about you. Your gorgeous hair. Your ethereal voice. You are beautiful, bright, and brave. And I love it how you melt at my touch.

Some may say that I rescued you from that convent you were hiding in. But the truth be told, you, my darling, rescued me.

Yours always,

Inspired by the tale of Rapunzel, Lila DiPasqua offers a new steamy, emotionally charged historical romance in the acclaimed Fiery Tales Series . . . Rescuing this beauty from the ‘tower’ is only the beginning . . .

Maintaining her ruse as a commoner, and trusting no one has kept Angelica safe. But a chance encounter with a handsome stranger lands her right where danger lies. Now, this sinfully handsome man with arresting blue eyes and a polished manner thinks he’s saved her life, when in fact he’s placed her in great peril. She’s intent on keeping him and everyone else at arm’s length. Yet, the smoldering attraction between them is difficult to deny. And impossible to ignore . . .

As commander of a number of privateer ships, Simon Boulenger dresses and speaks like an aristocrat, and has obtained wealth. But he is still not a noble. Or an officer in the King’s Navy. His lifelong dream to elevate himself from his station of birth and attain a
respectable place in society is dead. Worse, he’s ensnared in a deadly scheme, and must get out. But how is he to stay focused on his dangerous mission when the mysterious beauty has him utterly intrigued? He can’t afford the distraction any more than he can resist the carnal hunger she stirs. Simon soon discovers that she’s not only a passionate soul mate, but a woman born into privilege. A woman he can never have. But they’re in too deep.

Their hearts are at risk . . . as well as their lives.
