Is their passion strong enough to break her chains?
Andalucía Spain, 1489: Innocent Beatriz is desperate to escape the threat of a miserable marriage to a cruel Marquis. Forced into the betrothal by her ruthless merchant papá, her only hope is to conceal her identity and become a servant in a nearby castle—a life drastically different from her comfortable upbringing.
Tomás doesn’t know what to make of his well-spoken new servant girl. Her beauty and charm captivates the military hero; her mysterious nature intrigues him. And the desire she ignites burns brighter with each glance, as does his longing to claim her for his own.
Beatriz can’t resist Tomás’ passion nor deny the heat of her own. But neither the lush countryside nor the walls of the opulent Moorish castle can entirely protect her—and if he were to discover her secret, she could be torn away from him forever. Yet how can she sustain his love if she’s living a lie?
“The story is brimming with risqué retorts and searing sex scenes.” - Publishers Weekly
Beatriz Gonz lez y Serrano, the heroine in Donahue's flimsy romance set in 1489 Andaluc a, Spain, is dismayed when her greedy, abusive father promises her to an unattractive and equally greedy suitor. She seeks refuge in the castle of neighboring lord Tom s de Zayas, taking a new name and becoming a member of his staff. The sinfully sweet and naughty Tom s, who owns every scene he's in, doesn't care about social status. He wants Beatriz with a hunger he can't ignore. Seeing her every day fuels his fire, and once he learns she desires him as well, he has her assigned to specific duties that will give them more alone time. He's both taken by her beauty and smitten with her strength, and despite knowing she's keeping secrets, he's determined to make her his. Beatriz knows she's promised to another, so when Tom s proposes, she has to come clean, but letting him go is far more emotionally difficult than she imagined. Her betrothed eventually seeks her out and vows to make her honor the agreement. The story is brimming with risqu retorts and searing sex scenes. The danger of the arranged marriage helps make up for the nonexistent character development and confusing ending.
