Summary
"Florentine silk merchant Giovanni Pietro d'Angelo and his wife want nothing more than to marry their daughters to wealthy men of distinction. But when their son's dangerous indiscretion implicates him in a tragic accident, it is their eldest daughter who must pay the price. Blackmailed by the powerful and debauched Sebastiano Rovere, the Pietro d'Angelos must give beautiful Bianca in marriage to Rovere to buy his silence. With the aid of her mother, Bianca flees her dark, cruel union, seeking shelter in a seaside villa. It is the shocking murder of her husband that allows her to find the possibility of love at last. But Florentine society would never approve of the man she's chosen: Prince Amir, grandson of Memhet the Conqueror. Two passionate lovers ... two different cultures ... two worlds determined to keep them apart" -- Cover verso

Summary
Serena Pietro de Angelo takes pleasure in being a dutiful daughter and embraces her betrothal to a wealthy and influential French nobleman. Her older sisters have caused her parents much pain on their journeys to the altar, but Serena wants nothing more than to provide a male heir for Jean-Pierre and manage his chateau with a loving hand. Rumors have swirled around Jean-Pierre, but innocent Serena knows nothing about them -- until he makes her an indecent proposition that compromises her cherished notions of marriage and romance. Heartbroken, Serena runs away to England to seek the help of her sister, Lucianna. There, she meets a handsome courtier who offers the love she's always craved. But her parents and Jean-Pierre won't let her get away so easily
