DESTINY MADE HER A QUEEN -- AND PASSION, A REBELLIOUS SLAVE
Breathtaking Monique, lovechild of a gypsy princess and a French marquis. Stolen at birth by her mother's clan, to be raised in the untamed pride of their forest camps.
Born to rule, she saw her people crushed by the brutal power that terrorized all France -- and she vowed to avenge them.
Born to love, she defied every law for Lucien Gastogne, elegant aristocrat of the French Court -- notorious bandit and spy.
Even when she was torn from Lucien, taken brutally in marriage by the sinister Vomte DeVille, Monique clung to her undying dream. With her lover by her side, she would one day secure her freedom. And then together they would find their hotblooded destiny in the splendors of a golden passion.
