Beautiful Belle Flambeau relishes her independence even as she dreams of a family of her own. When a vicious attack leaves her with an ugly scar, Belle retreats from society, her hopes of love and courtship dashed forever, at least that's how she feels. Yet the darkly handsome, wounded stranger who seeks shelter on her property seems intent on proving otherwise, beginning a seduction that is slow, delicious, and utterly scandalous.

Prince Mikhail Kazanov wants and needs a loving, nurturing wife, not one of the shallow, empty-headed fortune hunters vying for his attentions. Drawn to Belle, Mikhail uses subterfuge to woo her. But though their heated attraction explodes into sensual bliss, a truth will be revealed that will drive Belle away and into danger's path. Now, as an enemy makes his violent intentions known, Mikhail must find a way to win Belle's trust again. For with their love—and her life—at stake, he will not fail her, of that he is determined.

Patricia Grasso brings her readers a wonerful love story. Belle, being scarred not just on the outside, but also on the inside, must learn to trust again, while Mikhail had to devise a plan to earn that trust. Tempting the Prince brings together two people who are a perfect match for each other. With wonderful secondary characters and an evil plot looming, this is a top pick for your summer reading.

Pack up your beach towel, head to the beach and get lost in a great book!
