Set in New Orleans in the early 1800 just as Americans began influencing trade and culture, here is Jennifer Horsman's most intense and compelling story.
Jade Terese Devon is a green eyed enchantress; one of this famous city's most beautiful, charming, vivacious and well loved citizens. Tragically, since the day she witnessed her beloved parent's gruesome and mysterious murder, she is also blind. The murderer was never apprehended. Every time something reminds her of that day, she is struck with a painful seizure and upon waking, she has no memory of it.
Now someone is trying to kill her.
Only Jade Terese could have captured the handsome young shipbuilder Victor Knolte's heart. Strong, willful, richer than a king, only Victor can save Jade Terese, first from an unthinkable slavery and then from dark and threatening past. Yet Jade Terese will never be truly safe until Victor forces her to see again, a violent process that first endanger Jade's very sanity and then imperils the precious love and passion, a passion that began with one look...
The downfall of this book is... too many erotic, love scenes, but readers can just skip them. Too steamy! Otherwise, it is suspenseful page turner!
