One look will steal your heart, but her touch will take your soul , , ,
La Serenissima - a beautiful but deadly city where corrupt aristocrats rule and everything, including love, has a price.
Tallow is anything but a simple candlemaker and when she has everything taken away from her - friends, family, hope - all she can do to survive is rely on the Maleovellis. Casting aside the safety of her disguise, she becomes cold-hearted Tarlo, female courtesan and the toast of those who, if they knew her secret, would destroy her.
But the intrigues of the Serenissian nobility are nothing against the larger forces moving within the world.
And Tallow's enemies have a hidden asset: the one thing they know she cannot possibly resist.
Curse of the Bond Riders 2
This second book of The Curse of the Bond Riders series lives up to the promise of the first.

Set again in the luscious, lovingly created canals and casas, we follow Tallow's journey as she learns how to use her talents. This is again an emotionally rich, engrossing story that never disappoints.
